Hussainsagar project was supervised by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority.
Hyderabad: Can any expertise fix the Hussainsagar? Mostly Ninety days after a Canadian company was allowable to work on the restoration of the lake, the reports on the oxygen and chemical points in the lake water appear like a mixed bag.
Two machines were fitted on the shore of the lake as a part of the project, which was started on a pilot base. At the beginning of the project in the past week of March, the liquefied oxygen level at the bottom of the pond at Necklace Road was at 3.9 milligrams per litre.
In the month of April and May, this level had fallen to 0, rendering to data analyzed by private labs. At Buddha Statue in the month of July, the oxygen level was observed to be rising up to 5.2 mg/L.
Specialists on lake conservation have reservations about any know-how working on Hussainsagar as well. “Putting out any amount of money on the lake is in futile if the catchment parts are left unprocessed and merely polluted water drifts in,” said Mr. B.V. Subba Rao, an ecologist.
The mission was supervised by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority. Telangana State Pollution Control Board was not tangled in the sampling and monitoring of the water.
It also remnants un-clear why no external experts were tangled in the project.
“They should make the checking process of the lake water clear and also put up a proficient committee to analyze the reports as seasonality might change the fallouts,” said Mr. Subba Rao.
The organizers of the project in Hyderabad say that the fallouts can be enhanced if the untreated sewerage that is being honored into the lake without any treatment is unfocused. PCB senior expert Raveendhar said the PCB’s real time checking system located at the bottom of the lake notes that there was no development in oxygen levels at distance, but a 50 percent development in oxygen levels was noted at the external level. Colour and odor levels were also refining, he added.
