South Delhi’s Dried Up Lake-Satpula To Revamp Soon!

Know It All in 30 Seconds

The Satpula, or the seven-arched bridge, located near Khirki Masjid acted as a dam or a weir, when constructed around the mid 1300s. This lake could get the new lease of life, with no objection certificate being issued to Delhi Jal Board (DJB), to revive it.

This project encounters various difficulties to be faced by the authorities as construction around an archaeological site and green belt area pose great challenges. A Jal Board official added that recharging groundwater is the whole purpose of rejuvenation. The officials stated further that the water entering the lake would be treated with a hybrid STP that is eco-friendly. It will remove all solid material, fine particles and purify it with a tertiary-level treatment such as a carbon filter.
