The drought-prone Chikkaballapur district in Karnataka has suffered water scarcity for years. Spread over 330 acres, the dried-up lake is full of weeds.
This rejuvenation programme is part of the second phase of the Hebbal – Nagawara valley project, in which 44 irrigation tanks will be revived in the Chikkaballapur district.
“The water will flow into the lake from Bagalur via Jala Hobli. Desilting the lake is essential for the percolation of water through the gradients and increase the tank’s capacity. The farmers will not receive water directly.
Meanwhile, the government will establish water purifying plants so that residents of the constituency can access potable water.
