For centuries the Puttenahalli Lake had been a pristine water body, playing a vital role in maintaining the fragile ecosystem of the Puttenahalli neighbourhood. Like many other lakes in Bangalore, it started shrinking and became a marshy garbage dump due to indiscriminate exploitation and neglect.
Troubled by the fact that a fairly large water body was disappearing in their backyard, starting in 2008, Usha Rajagopalan and a few other residents from L&T South City decided to form a Save Our Lake team and campaigned to save the lake. After much perseverance the lake was brought into BBMP's revival radar.
Revival started in Jan 2010.
