The Odai Keni kulam restoration in Sholinganallur was taken up by Care Earth as part of the Greater Chennai Corporation’s initiative to revive water bodies and rejuvenate their ecosystem services under the state government’s Sustainable Water Security Mission. Topographical surveys and field studies were conducted to demarcate boundaries and also understand the morphometric details of the lake. Invasive hyacinth was removed from the waterbody and accumulated silt was removed to improve water holding capacity.
