Jamshedpur, April 9: The death of fishes in Jayanti Sarovar, Jubilee Park happened due to polluted water, says an investigation report which was helped conduct by the DC Amit Kumar.
The district administration is ready to send a notice to Jusco which works for the upkeep of the lake. DC Amit Kumar has ordered to set up more fountains, mix potassium permanganate and make arrangements for filtration of water.
It may be noted that the picturesque landmark Jayanti Sarovar (better known as Jubilee Park Lake) turned into graveyard for several fishes early Wednesday morning.
The incident took place two days after aquatic life struggled for breath at the Sarovar. The oily layer, which is toxic for aquatic life, was spotted by anglers early in the morning. In no time, fish were seen gasping on the water surface. Hundreds of dead fish soon spread along the bank of the lake.
According to environment experts the decrease of oxygen level due to shallowness of the water body and oily polluting has led to suffocation causing death of the fishes.
An expert noted that the shallowness of the lake has increased due to silt deposition. It proves that shallowness of the water is making fish exposes to predator.
The turbidity of water in the lake is quite high as it was not transparent due to influence of domestic and industrial sewage coming to the lake from the inlets.
