Bhubaneswar:  Water and Power Consultancy Services Limited (WAPCOS), a mini Ratna Company of the Government of India, has prepared a draft plan for rejuvenation and sustainable conservation plan of Holy Lake Bindusagar and its five periphery tanks and presented its concept before stakeholders at a meeting in Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) yesterday and also organised a meet on the banks of the historic water body.

This evening among others, Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena, Bhubaneswar MP Prasanna Kumar Patsani, local councillors of the surrounding areas and representatives of the priests and servitors from various temples and residents of Old Town area attended the consultation near Bindusagar.

While the expert body on water management took up Bindusagar as the central source for the revival of a water ecosystem, the five water bodies, it picked for the project, include: Devipadahara, Kotitirtha, Godipokhari, Ganga Jamuna and Godavari Kund.

In a nutshell, the project is based on the observations on the ecological and heritage perspective of Bindusagar and the nearby water bodies and how, communities, as major stakeholders would play a pro-active role in the conservation project in order to have a pure, deep and healthy water body so that all the annual religious functions of Lord Lingaraj would be organised with much fanfare and followings.
