Bengaluru to Replenish Drying Lakes with Treated Water in Effort to Combat Water Crisis

In response to the worsening water crisis in Bengaluru, civic authorities have embarked on a plan to replenish drying lakes with 1,300 million litres per day of treated water, aiming to restore groundwater levels in a city where approximately 50% of borewells have dried up. The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) will oversee the project, which includes installing filter borewells and constructing water plants utilizing innovative technology near the restored lake beds. This collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) is anticipated to contribute an additional 20–30 million litres per day (MLD) of water to the system, offering a vital solution to Bengaluru’s water scarcity woes.
