|The lake is situated in the north east of KR Puram Village in Bangalore. It is also known as KR Puram Lake. In 2005-06, the lake was in dilapidated condition due to the disposal of untreated sewage into the lake. This lead to mass fish death.|
|Nualgi powder was applied in the lake to boost the fish production. This powder is used once in 15-20 days or whenever they experience less fish yield. Process of application is same as mentioned already. 5-6 packets are added in 15-20 days. Since then, they are using this powder to increase the DO level in the water body.
|In 6-8 hours, DO increases to 2- 2.5 mg /l and in 4 days DO shoots up to 5-10 mg/l. (Source: Nualgi nanobiotech, Bangalore)|
