Vembanad Lake Dying a Slow Death
The Vembanad Lake, Kerala’s famed backwater destination, is dying a slow death thanks to a sheet of plastic waste in the lake bed and a layer of hyacinths on the surface.

Unprocessed waste from urban areas from Kochi to Kozhencherry eventually finds their way to the Vembanad Lake. The water is not fit for drinking.  The accumulation of chemical waste leads to frequent boutes of epidemics.

The water flow has virtually stopped at many places and the oxygen level depleted. The alarming spread of water hyacinth has degraded the quality of the lake’s water and threatened the existence of fish and other creatures.

A Goldfish Explosion in Hamilton Harbour Stresses the Ecosystem - The water of Hamilton Harbor has been used and abused over the decades, as sewage water and industrial by-products have flowed into the port since the 1800s with devastating consequences for the harbour’s flora and fauna. Today, treated sewage water, which isn’t fully cleansed of algae-causing nutrients, is still released into the harbour, along with occasional sewage overflow. The water has little to no oxygen, making survival a struggle for native fish species like walleye and yellow perch.
