Just another lake on fire in India

You probably have heard of lakes burning for hours in Bangalore, India’s Silicon Valley.

Now, you can add another one to the list. This time, water started burning for two hours in Hassan. And believe me or not, the reason here is exatly the same: illegal dumping of waste.

This illegal dumping occurred on May 10, 2017 after rain.

According to residents, a petrol company dumped some waste into the lake. Many farmers and families in the area count on the water of this lake to live, irrigate their fields and feed cattle.

The illegal dumping of waste mixed with mass untreated sewage is creating a water crisis which threatens residents’ health – and is causing lakes to catch fire.
