Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC)Â along with National Environmental Engineering Research InstituteÂ (NEERI)Â Â has recently decided to begin the cleaning of lakes and the first lake to clean in the city is Naik Talao.
NMC had planned a rejuvenating project under which lakes like Futala and Naik talao will be cleaned.
Civic Chief Abhijeet Bangar during a press meet said â€œa Detailed Project Report (DPR)Â has been submitted by the officials of NEERI on which the NMC has taken a step forward and have started working on it”
It is found that a sewer line has an opening in the lake whichÂ is the reason that the water of Naik talao has been dirty for so many months. A request was made by the civic body to NEERIÂ for a better plan of overcoming the problem of sewage line at the talao. Considering the issue NEERI has asked NMCÂ to divert the sewage water.
Naik talao is a well-known lake in the city; it is also a lake which maintains the ground water level of the city.
