Bengaluru: As sewage waste continues to flow into Kothanur Lake in JP Nagar, a fish kill was reported here on Tuesday August 23.
Many dead fish were found floating in the wetlands earlier in March. But this time, the fish died in a larger body of water.
According to sources, in July, the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board received a notice from the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) directing them to stop the flow of sewage.
Over 36 waterbodies were found to be unfit for aquatic life after conducting a water quality analysis by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB).
The data show that 32 fish-kill incidents were reported in Bengaluru between 2017 and 2022, which concerns environmentalists.
