Until a few months ago, the people in the Madambakkam area have been illegally drawing water from the lake along with dumping garbage in a part of it. A case has been filed in Madras High Court in order to stop the people from polluting the environment.
Read more to learn about this High Court case and a link to a news article which will explain the condition of the lake in detail.
What is The High Court Case?
As I stated before, the Madras High Court has filed a case against the people in Madambakkam area for allegedly dumping garbage at the Sithalapakkam lake in Sithalapakkam village panchayat.
There is no need for evidence other than the current state of the Sithalapakkam Lake itself. Every day, tons of trash is being dumped into the lake by tractors on behalf of the Sithalapakkam Grama Panchayat. Poison gas, which is sometimes burned by debris, has had a profound effect on residents in the surrounding areas.
What Action Was Taken On The People?
In this regard, petitioning the relevant authorities has turned out to be useless. They feel no regret for turning their own lakes into garbage along with destroying the health of their own people. The petition was taken up for hearing at a session of justices by Vineet Kothari, Acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court, and R. Sureshkumar.
After hearing the case, the judges ordered a ban on dumping garbage at the Sithalapakkam Lake. In addition, Sithalapakkam Grama Panchayat Special Officer was ordered to respond to the petition which postponed the investigation for two weeks.
