Lakes contribute significant additional recharge to ground water due to infiltration, but however, urbanization has led to loss of water bodies, resulting in increased runoff. There is rapid depletion of ground water level, and the worst ground water scenario is being experienced by apartment complexes. An additional problem is the pollution due factors like idol immersion during Ganesh Chaturthi, the washing of clothes in lakes, and indiscriminate dumping of debris.

The Lake Protection Committee was constituted in order to cater to the protection of lakes in the Hyderabad Metropolitan Region. It is involved in the administration of the protection and improvement of lakes and their catchments. The Metropolitan Commissioner of HMDA coordinates all the activities of the Committee.
