Karnataka: sewage flow one of the reasons behind foam in Bellandur Lake

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science have identified three reasons for the foam, froth and occasional fire that affects Bengaluru's Bellandur lake. The study found that sewage entering the lake took up to 15 days to spread, with surfactants from the sewage collecting on sludge over time. Heavy rains then churn up the surfactant-laden sludge, dislodging the accumulations of surfactants. At the same time, the researchers suggest that suspended solids containing certain bacteria could also be responsible for the foam formation. The researchers have called for untreated sewage to be prevented from entering the lake.
