What is “adopting a lake”?

  • Adoption” means participating in a citizen-based effort—large or small in restoring and reviving a lake
  • Volunteering to monitor water quality
  • Identifying storm drains
  • Organizing cleanups
  • Planting trees along eroding banks
  • Organizing regular community movement

The Lakes of Hyderabad have provided numerous services that have fundamentally supported human health and well-being. Exploitation of these water bodies over the years has jeopardised their very existence. The vulnerable ecosystems of these disappearing lakes can't afford to wait any longer. It's time for action to restore what is remaining! The need of the hour is collective effort from all.

The Adopt-a-Lake campaign aims to encourage local civic organizations, individuals, business groups and government to preserve the vanishing waterscapes of the city of Hyderabad. The campaign has two distinct components, first, sensitizing the common individuals about the importance of urban lakes and urgency of protecting them through street plays, distribution of pamphlets, brochures, leaflets and stickers. Second, engage dialogue with the local business groups and government bodies to adopt different segments of lake’s shoreline for rejuvenation and rehabilitation.
