The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is planning to rope in National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) for cleaning up two of city’s lakes viz. the Futala Lake and Naik Talao. Speaking about the plan, municipal commissioner Abhijit Bangar revealed that NEERI has put forth a proposal to cleanse both these lakes. The research institute has asked for Rs. 1-1.50 crores for cleaning up and rejuvenation of the lakes.

“Before starting to treat water of both the lakes, Neeri will first identify the source of pollution,” Bangar said. He further added that the first phase will begin with the rejuvenation work of Futala Lake.

India’s pioneer research institute NEERI, will deploy a combination of various technologies in order to rejuvenate these lakes. Some of the technologies that will be used are patented ones, as mentioned in the proposal. Collecting and treating the sewage water before it is released in the water bodies will be the focal point of the clean-up initiative. The treatment of sewage water will also attempt to lower the levels of chemical oxygen demand, biochemical oxygen demand and other key parameters below the permissible standards.

NMC has still not taken a final call on NEERI’s proposal.

City’s civic body will procure a five remote sensor-based technology that was exhibited in a start-up event organized in Mumbai. The state government has pledged to extend any kind of financial aid that would be required to acquire the technology needed for clearing the floating waste in lakes.
