A week ago, Bellandur residents noticed that the contour mapping exercise had begun near the lake.
According to workers, temporary diversion channels would be made at both Bellandur lake and Varthur lake.
A BDA official told The New Indian Express, “Currently, the diversion channels are made near Bellandur lake from up to 250-300 metres.
Similar developments will take place at Varthur lake.”He added, “We have made sluice gates at Bellandur lake, and the lake is already getting dewatered.
There is smell due to this, but we are ready to bear it to see a beautiful Bellandur lake,” said Aarthi T, a resident of Bellandur.
