Published on : Saturday, January 22, 2022

In the past two years, the Red Hills reservoir has gained more attraction, emerging as a significant site for community learning about biodiversity conservation.

In order to make the reservoir a tourism site, the Water Resources Department (WRD) is increasing biodiversity and including inexperienced cowl with participation of the general public and numerous non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Built in 1876, the reservoir is almost 93% full, and is without doubt one of the 5 main sources of drinking water for Chennai.

Attractions besides the Jones Tower have been added to the lake. Work is going on for the documentation of fowl species throughout the season and also for developing the butterfly park in the lake’s periphery.

Almost 40 bird species, together with the paradise flycatcher and orange-headed thrush, have been documented thus far. Officials of the WRD said that the lake and its fringes now sport a cleaner and greener look due to the rigorous joint efforts of the division, NGOs and residents.
