Dredging the Lake

November 18, 2020 |

With an aim to infuse fresh life to the Wular Lake, Government is mulling to create 34.58 kms Boulevard project, costing Rs over 700 crore for revamping the Asia’s largest fresh water lake- A move which could really enhance the tourism influx of the JK . Government has project to create Boulevard project alongside Wular Lake, which will cost Rs over 700 crore to the Government. The project will be completely eco-friendly only battery cars would be plying on the road. Wular Lake is a wetland of international importance after it was declared a Ramsar site for conservation. The desilting effort launched under the comprehensive Wular Conservation and Management Plan (WCMP) has to go on while the Government is contrasting and mulling various development projects. The work needs a greater impetus to increase the water holding capacity of the lake. It has been said that the proximity to the road network is 42.3 kms, while as total perimeter of the Wular Boundary is 83.6kms. The proposed Wular Boulevard project is supposed to begin from Garoora to Sopore, covering around 34.58 kms. The officials have given a detailed report on the project, saying that under embankment dredging various works are being carried out. Under Eco-Tourism, various look out points, wooden Ghats, tourist information centre, parking areas, besides many other initiatives would be undertaken. The protection measures for eco-restoration of Wular Lake and its feeder channels, associated wetlands and marshes should gain momentum in view of the massive floods that struck the Valley in September 2014. Importantly Wular Lake provides a natural way out for the excess or flood waters in the Jhelum and it needs to be protected and conserved at all cost. The entire periphery of the lake had been demarcated as per authentic revenue record which indicates a lake area of 130 sq kms. As many as 1,159 geo-tagged boundary pillars have been erected delineating the lake boundary from the adjoining areas. There is a greater need for deployment of more men and machinery on the project to finish it within a set time-frame. There is also a need to approach Dredging Corporation of India for dredging the lake on a large scale.
