Water Pollution: Bengaluru Lake Froth On Streets

BENGALURU, INDIA - AUGUST 17: Froth filled polluted Bellandur Lake on August 17, 2017 in Bengaluru, India. Rapid urbanisation is taking its toll, between 2001 and 2011, the city’s population increased from 6.5 million to 9.6 million, the highest rate of growth of any city in India. The indiscriminate discharge of household waste and industrial effluents into lakes is what causes the toxicity, leading to the water body foaming. According to a report by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, of the 67 lakes surveyed in Bengaluru, none had water that was fit for drinking. (Photo by Arijit Sen/Hindustan Times )
