Kakkalue lake is in a span of 120 acres at the heart of Tiruvallur town. The ground water around this area is fast depleting. Due to encroachments around the lake drainage water seeps into the lake. Since the government has not shown proper interest in restoring the lake to life it is dry for most months of the year. So we formed a group under vaagai trust based in tiruvallur and under the guidance of Sabari Green foundation, a NGO working in lake activism for the past 20 years we began cleaning the bushes and unwanted plants under public participation. The PWD has provided written permission to work. We are now moving towards bund strenghthening and creation of islands inside the lake to increase water stagnation and ecology. We required 3 lakhs for doing this work on a 3 km stretch ofof bund.
