Water of Sambhar Lake to be examined regularly: Authorities

Thursday, 28 November 2019 | PTI | Jaipur

Authorities in Rajasthan's Alwar district on Wednesday issued instructions that the water in Sambhar Lake, where carcasses of thousands of migratory birds were found, should be examined periodically and a record of the data be maintained.

The instructions were issued at a meeting of the district environment committee attended by Alwar District Collector Jagroop Singh Yadav and Divisional Forest Officer Kavita Singh, among others. Carcasses of about 18,000 migratory birds were found at Sambhar Lake earlier this month. The dead birds included plovers, common coot, black winged stilt, northern shovelers, ruddy shelduck, and pied avocet. In the recent tragedy, no algae toxicity was found. However, amid apprehensions about it, biological and chemical investigation of the lake water should be conducted and data shared from time to time, Yadav said.
