Powai lake is the lung of Mumbai city. It has crocodiles and fish,it has to be maintained to keep the lake clean and beautiful.With the beautification the lake has a jogging strip around it. Imagine a city with a lake full of crocs...Today the Powai lakefront stands decorated merely because a lake front property has societal prestige. The anthropogenic pressures in the catchment itself has resulted in degradation of the catchment area due to deforestation, extensive concretization, consequent erosion and increased silt flows, which have vitiated the quality of water stored in the lakes. Growth of water hyacinth has been prolific in this lake resulting in breeding of vectors and consequently causing endemic diseases on and off to it’s habitat.
