The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has decided to go in for a revamped system of cleaning the Hussain Sagar water body.
Speaking to the presspersons here on Thursday, HMDA Commissioner Neerabh Kumar Prasad said the elaborate revamped system had been broken down into five major components, reports thehindu.com.
“The work on Interception and Diversion (I&D) structures and STPs was on to treat inflows into the lake and to improve the quality of lake water, the dredging of sediments at the mouths of nalas would commence shortly,” he said.
There were about 80 lakes in the catchment area of Hussainsagar and it was proposed to take up their protection by categorising and prioritising them.
