Saving the Large Urban Lake of Chengalpet – Part 2

The Tirutheri Lake, located adjacent to the Chennai-Trichy Highway, is a large lake that is truly a world of its own. Spread across 64 acres, the lake houses countless species such as birds, reptiles, amphibians, and also the local residents that directly depend on the lake. Over the years, unfortunately, this world has been abused and disturbed incessantly, making it unfit to host life. Rampant growth of invasive weeds, constant dumping of garbage, and even encroachment of the lake area are a few of the factors that have impacted this lake.

In an effort to restore the lake back to its natural glory, E.F.I has collaborated with the Chengalpet District Administration and Renault Nissan Technology & Business Centre India (RNTBCI) to take on the revival of the large lake. Take a look at all that has happened during its restoration!

We thank our partners, local residents, volunteers, and well-wishers for supporting this restoration!
