Co-existence of Ecology and Development at the City of Gates

The Shenpunji Lake is located in the industrial hub of Waluj in Aurangabad. This lake plays an important role in agriculture with many fields in close proximity. Recent urbanization has lead to abuse of the water body. The lake was covered with invasive weeds and its water was heavily contaminated.

A collaborative effort between Government of Maharashtra, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has facilitated E.F.I in reviving the lake of serenity. Take a look at this detailed report of all that happened in this eco-restoration

The Shenpunji Lake is a unique biodiversity hotspot and home to several exotic flora and fauna. With new bunds and a regulated outlet, this water body is all set to store water from the coming monsoon showers. The protective fences shall ensure that there is no future abuse from human intervention.

We thank all those who helped us in restoring this water body.

Volunteer for India and her Environment with E.F.I, Jai Hind!
