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, a few 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. The DPR for Puttenahalli Lake can be seen here.
Revival started in Jan 2010.
