around cities should be a major source of attraction for those living in urban areas From morning walkers to romantic couples longing to get away in a boatto the elderly who simply want to sit and watch the world go bylakes cater to us all Andof coursewhen associated with wetlandsthey provide an opportunity to make our children and grandchildren into amateur naturalists What many of us dont know is the vital role these water bodies play in maintaining the sustainability of our environment But in India we have come to dread water bodies in our cities only because instead of rainwaterit is sewage and effluents that are filling up our urban lakes and ponds Rather than controlling the rate of run-off in our citieswe find our lakes carrying the load of garbagesewage and encroachment by land grabbers It need not be that way Pune has shown the way The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)working closely with the Institute of Environment Education and ResearchBharati Vidyapeeth University (BVIEER)funded by the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM)launched an eco-restoration project that has successfully brought Lake Pashan and its surrounding wetlands back to their original glory I could share the joy as Dr Erach Bharucha gleefully informed me that in the winter of 2012-13a pair of grey herons nested successfully at Pashanafter a longlong time A surgeon by professionDr Bharucha is passionate about environmental sustainabilityand has found a second vocation as the director of BVIEER He and his team have worked closely with the PMC in restoring biodiversity in the region Pashan lake and the surrounding wetlands used to be a major attraction for bird watching The legendary Salim Ali was a frequent visitor Bird counts were regularly taken by the World Wildlife Fund and Ecological Society of Pune As late as the 1950sthe lake hosted flamingosstorksnucta ducks and a host of waders In wintermorning birds used to come to Pashan and return to the Mula-Mutha river bed (a 1 km stretch between Bund Garden and Koregaon Park) in the evening to roost on islands and rock bunds made by traditional fisherfolk The lake was created by an ancient dam across Ramnadia tributary of the Mula river of Pune city The ecosystem was an undisturbed habitat for aquatic birds with a full complement of raptorssuch as Marsh harriers and Bonellis eagles The water flowed through an extensive forested tract of babul trees and scrubland on the surrounding hills Scrubland is often looked upon as wasteland Just because it does not produce crops and does not yield revenuedoes not mean that it has no value The terrestrial babul thorn forest and scrubland had significant value for rich bird and insect life in the region The lake was the source of water to Pashan village But more importantthe wetlands helped retain water during dry periodsthus keeping the water table high and relatively stable During floodsthey reduced flood levels downstream and trapped suspended solids and nutrients in the aquatic systemthereby creating conditions of rich biodiversity Even in the early 1980sPashan was a major wintering site for waterfowl There was a precipitous drop in these visitors to the lake between 1989 and 1994 The increased human activity in and around the lakeincluding washing clothes and bathing cattletook its toll on the environment Pune also saw an investment upsurge on the western side of the city in the aftermath of the Mumbai blasts of 1992-93 The upstream debris from construction in the catchment area of Ram nala (originally Ramnadi)11 km away from the lakedestroyed the natural babul forest It added to the problem of rapid siltation and reduced the depth and water storage capacity of the lake As the lake became shallowthe fringe reed beds gave way to Ipomoea (commonly known as the besharam plantwhich wipes off everythinggrowing itself into a thick shrub)which covered about a third of the previous water spread The second half of the 1990s saw another major investment boom in Puneled by the IT Park in Hinjewadi A number of villages in Bavdhan Khadancovering an area of a little over 6 sq km on the western side of Pashanand another collection of villagescovering 84 sq km in Baner on the eastern sidewere added to the Pune municipal area in 1997 As the housing and construction boom took off just as water and sewerage infrastructure was being laidPashan lake and the wetlands were at the receiving end of these developments The debris from construction activity found its way to the lake and the wetlands With the deteriorating conditions at the lakethe movement of local birds stoppedand the region turned into only a halting or roosting site for a few migratory birds Raptors (birds of prey that sit at the apex of the food pyramid) such as Marsh harriersonce common in Pashanbecame only occasional visitors As the mud banks were lostwaders dependent on gradually tapering water levels at the periphery also abandoned the region It was then that the PMC turned its attention to Pashan to undo the damage The lake was fully drained in May 2005 with a view to dredging and removing the silt Recognising the need for scientific inputsBVIEER was requested in 2006 to prepare a full-fledged eco-restoration project for Pashan At a total cost of Rs 167 crorethe project was sanctioned under the JNNURM in 2006and the contract for implementation was given to a private companyNERILbased on competitive bidding The government of India contributed 50 per cent of the fundsthe government of Maharashtra 20 per
