Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) along with National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) 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 “a Detailed Project Report (DPR) 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 which 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 NEERI for a better plan of overcoming the problem of sewage line at the talao. Considering the issue NEERI has asked NMC 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.
