From a Local Dumpsite to a Colony Pond

Lakes and ponds often bear the brunt of modern day human negligence. No where is it more evident than at the Karimadom Colony Pond in Attakulangara, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

This pond was earlier used for domestic purposes until rapid urbanisation got the better of the pond. It was later contaminated by domestic sewage inlets being let into the water flow of this system pond.

With administrative support form the Government of Kerala, and funding support from the IndusInd Bank, part of the HInduja Foundation under the Jal Jeevan initiative, E.F.I took on the restoration of the Karimadom Colony Pond. Take a look at all that happened during the restoration!

We thank all the volunteers who supported us in restoring this water body!
