Posted on : 25/Feb/2021 9:26:28 AM

There are many tourist spots in Chennai and many visit these tourist spots with their families and friends to have relaxation.

It is now mentioned that the WRD or Water Resource Department had proposed to develop the Red Hills Lake as a tourist spot. Point is that WRD has submitted a proposal to the Tiruvallur district administration. In future, people visiting this place might be able to see a green belt on the 30acre vacant site around the boundary of this lake and it would be protected from encroachments. Participation of the community in lake conservation is very important and WRD has been making efforts.

In the year 1876, RedHills reservoir was constructed and the reservoir is one amongst five reservoirs that supplies drinking water to the Chennai residents. It must be noted that RedHills reservoir supplies 270 mld water out of the total of 830mld drinking water that is being supplied per day.

The excess rains have filled up this important RedHills reservoir and the truth is that the reservoir has 96.4% capacity now. The total storage of this reservoir is 3182 mcft. Recently, 400 saplings were planted on the boundary of this lake along the GNT Road. Information collected is that WRD associated with Rural development Department and various organisations like Rotary Club of Alandur, Social Work Team Trust or Swott, schools and colleges etc for the plantation work. 

An official belonging to WRD mentioned that the department wanted to secure a 30acre site that was free from encroachments and increase the green cover, create recreational facilities etc around the water body. He concluded that a proposal and design to develop this lake as a tourist spot like Poondi reservoir was submitted.

It is learnt that WRD has got plans to create a park with childrens play area and a pond on the periphery of the lake along the GNT Road. Assurance has been given by the officials belonging to the Tiruvallur district administration regarding developing this lake into a tourist attraction. Thick vegetation around this lake has been cleared and about 1000 saplings would be planted on the site. This was according to Mr. V. Irulandi, former Principal Chief Conservator of Forests and member of Alandur Rotary Club. 

The superb piece of information is that 12 varieties of native species like neem, iluppai, maghizam, vengai and Indian gooseberry were planted. Funds are now awaited from the Tiruvallur district administration for developing green space around the water body.
