Take a look at some of E.F.I’s scientific innovations at our lakes and ponds restoration efforts!
Alleri Tank Restoration
Located within the M.E.P.Z, the Alleri is an important water body located between the larger Kadaperi and Thiruneermalai lakes. A collaborative conservation effort between M.E.P.Z, DXC Technology and the Environmentalist Foundation of India (E.F.I)
Madambakkam Lake Restoration
Madambakkam lake in the southwest of Chennai is one of the largest lakes in the city and indeed a boon to be discovered for us at E.F.I. A collaborative effort between PWD, Government of Tamil Nadu, and the Rotary Club of Madras, south has facilitated E.F.I in reviving the lake of serenity.
The island with neem tree has been constructed to conserve the species and would be a natural nesting place for birds and other reptiles in the near future
These are recharge pits for the water body that are used to increase the water holding capacity and recharge the groundwater level
Vandalur Lake Restoration
The Vandalur lake is situated in the southwestern part of the metropolitan city of Chennai. A collaborative effort between PWD and AstraZeneca has facilitated E.F.I in the refurbishment efforts of a disowned water body for the nature to bounce back with its at most resources.
Koladi Lake Restoration
The Koladi Lake restoration. An Eco-Paradise in the making. E.F.I with support from Thiruvallur District Administration and the Rotary Club of Madras has taken on the ambitious task of reviving this lake.
Construction of dual embankment prevents rapid soil erosion and protects the lake from further dumping of waste.
We thank all those who have helped in strengthening our efforts in restoration of these water bodies.

Great efforts..The Public – Private – NPO’s is a good combination for such eco friendly projects.
It can be sustained and will be an on going project with rich dividends to ecology and public in general.
Sir, What about the koladi lake encroachment?
The encroachments shall be handled and managed by the local panchayat, local governing body or the PWD.
What wondefull work you people are doing. Kudos to you and everyone that contributes.
