The sewage-filled toxic foam from Bengaluru’s Bellandur lake has now reached Lakshmi-Sagara lake in Kolar-district. The froth spilled after water from sewage treatment-plants in Bellandur was released to 126-tanks in Kolar under the Koramangala-Challaghatta Valley-project. The project aims to provide water to parched Kolar by filling irrigation tanks in Chintamani with treated sewage-water from the tanks in the Koramangala and Challaghatta-valley in Bengaluru.
