Hebbagodi Lake To Be Listed In Limca Book Of Record For Having The Largest Artificial Island

Hebbagodi Lake has listed itself in the Limca book of record for being a prime example of the success of lake reviving effort.

Hebbagodi Lake has made the headlines for being a prime example of the success of lake reviving effort. The Hebbagodi stands out for being on the way to restore its original state while some other bodies of water are contaminated with toxic foam and chemicals.

The lake appears in the Limca Book of Record for housing the largest artificial island in India. It spreads on a 12,000 square feet area and is covered in vegetation as well as the bodies of water cutting through the plants.

The plants in question are grown on water solvent; you may know this method as aquaculture or hydroponics. This whole greenery system is supported by rafts that also have cleaning properties. This platform is built of reused PVC pipes.

The principal objective of the project is to enhance and maintain the quality of water. This target is achieved by taking out excess nutrients and keeping the pH level between 6.5 and 8.5.

The Hebbagodi Lake covers an area of 35 acres and has the perimeter of 2km. It is in Bengaluru Urban district’s Anekal taluk.

This project is part of Biocon India and Syngene International’s social responsibility programme. The lake’s present state is the result of a revival scheme that took place in August 2016.

The project includes deweeding, installing energy-efficient aerators to boost the level of oxygen, laying conduits to tackle foul smell and sewage spills, and removing silt.

67,000 m3 of soil were used to construct an embankment that is 1.5 km long. This bund is to extend the lake’s capacity to retain water.

This success plays as an encouragement for the government to draw up plans to save more lakes. The revival of the Hebbagodi is set against the disappearance of natural bodies of water in Bengaluru. In 1960, there were 250, but in 2018, this number shrinks to only 34 lakes.
