PhotoWalk #117, Walk by the lake.

December 14, 2017

Perungudi Lake (Tamil: பெருங்குடி ஏரி) is a 50-acre water body located near Chennai’s IT corridor, Rajiv Gandhi Salai, India. It is one of the few protected lakes of Chennai, fully fenced with compound wall and pathways laid on its east and south side for walkers.
Excess rain later flows into the lake through storm water channels from the nearby residential areas. Perungudi lake is connected with Pallikaranai wetland through marsh lands spreading across Perungudi/Velachery/Pallikaranai.

This lake reached its full capacity during the cloudburst that hit Chennai in December 2015. The beauty of the lake caught the attention of its nearby residents and motivated them to start a people’s forum to protect the lake from pollution, abuse, encroachments, sewage water letdown, defecation, and water theft by registering the Perungudi Lake Area Neighbourhood Environment Transformation (PLANET). PLANET is a registered body of all resident associations around Perungudi lake. PLANET celebrated Perugundi Lake Festival (PLF) 2016 & 2017 with several art and cultural programs with a perspective of promoting waterbodies. PLANET planted several tree saplings in and around the lake and regularly monitoring its growth. TN PWD supports the activities by the PLANET.
