Powai Lake is again full of hyacinths, garbage, and sewerage. Powai Lake is a prime water body covering over 220 acres. Now it is in the news for half of the lake covered with Hyacinth. Source DNA

Why wasn’t the contract renewed on time?

The BMC machinery takes time to move. As residents of Powai, we need to be extremely vigilant of what is happening. It was only after 50% of the lake got covered with Hyacinths that citizens started making a noise about this issue.

Hyacinths growth is a sign of polluted water. Somewhere between 7-15 sewage floodgates open in Powai Lake. Why hasn’t BMC acted on this so this expensive contract of cleaning the Lake is reduced and tax payers money saved. Source The Asian Age
