Rejuvenation Work of Kavoor Lake Almost Completed: To be Inaugurated Soon

The Mangalore Smart City Limited (MSCL) has completed most of the Kavoor Kere rejuvenation works. This is MSCL’s second lake development project after Gujjarakere. The formal inauguration is expected to be held next week.

The improvement and upgradation of the lake was taken up as a part of the rainwater harvesting initiative. The purpose is to improve the socio-cultural value of the surrounding area, and redevelop the same as a recreational area.  Some of the works taken up include continuous walking and jogging track of 827m, modernisation and upgrade of the existing sluice gate at outlet, seating and recreational area created, and chain link fence erected to define lake periphery, and also on inner periphery, for safety. A four-wheeler and two-wheeler parking area has also been developed.

MSCL general manager Arun Prabha said the lake is developed in such a way, that it requires minimal periodic maintenance. The lake is already attracting migratory birds. At least 300 species of birds have started visiting the lake and has become a bird watchers’ delight. People have already started using the facility. The night view of the lake is amazing. Work on installing fountains is on, and the lake is well illuminated.
