Ambitious Plans For Contaminated Saipem Lake

PWD Minister and local MLA Churchill Alemao has unveiled an ambitious Rs. 5.5 crore plan to convert the Saipem Lake in Navelim that is dying due to pollution, into a tourist spot.
He said work of desilting the lake will commence in the next year as soon as all the septic tanks and soak pits of neighbouring wards of Margao are connected to the sewerage system, which work he said will be completed by this year end.
He also sought to assure the farmers protesting government’s move to acquire additional land for the sewerage treatment plant by telling them that they will be permitted to continue cultivating the land even after the government acquires it.
He said the additional land is sought to be acquired to provide a buffer zone around the sewerage system and not to dispossess the farmers.
