Resident groups take up freshwater source restoration and maintenance measures
Citizen groups are reclaiming Chennai’s water bodies
Be it lakes, ponds or tanks, reservoir restoration projects are underway in full swing in different neighbourhoods of Chennai, from Velachery to Perambur to Ambattur. Armed with Whatsapp groups and oodles of initiative, these unaffiliated, apolitical groups are binging about change in spades.
Resident groups across the city take up restoration and maintenance of their local water bodies - bringing in people of all ages together on weekends.
They make use of technologies to gather the volunteers and commit to restoration and renovation work during their free time.
