Nizampet Lake Rehabilitation Project

Introduction

Nizampet Lake which was once a serene lake in green environs have a different story to tell today. The lake is bombarded with waste materials and pollutants which is killing the aquatic life that survives in the lake. Also, the lake surroundings is full of unbearable stench. This Nizampet lake needs urgent attention and proper conservation.


And from here our work starts:

We, the Ladybird Environmental Consulting team has launched the Nizampet lake project, to rehabilitate the lake as well as work on beautification of its surroundings.


The overall goal of the proposed project is to transform the deteriorating Nizampet Lake through habitat improvement initiatives. We will carry out lake clean up and strengthening activities along with shore protection measures through afforestation.


We will make the pathways beautiful with plantation. We will also increase awareness about lake among the locals and inspire them to help us in its beautification. This is a 18 month project and we hope to achieve what we have set out to do.


With its motto 'Help people in helping environment' Ladybird Environmental Consulting is all set to carry its Nizampet lake project to its peak.


In partnership with Wells Fargo Solutions for India, Youth for Seva and Local Municipal Corporations....Ladybird enters into new waters into new territory.
