Call for volunteers to clean Chitlapakkam lake

Chitlapakkam Rising has called for volunteers of all age group to join the cleaning activity of Chitlapakkam Lake.

A press release said there is so much of plastic waste hidden beneath the dead leaves and soil, due to years of neglect and carelessness.

“We are positive, we will make the surrounding better. Thanks to Chitlapakkam Panchayat ‘Mesthiri’ Narasimhan for promptly sending his team to empty the loads of plastic waste we collect. We request volunteers to visit the lake at 7 am on Sundays and help us,” the NGO said in the release.

The NGO has also requested the visitors to the lake not to throw trash inside the water and instead use bins.
