The Venalagadda Lake Cleaning Project Conference, attended by Grade XI students on 12th October, focused on the use of phytoremediation to restore the lake’s health. Colonel Kapoor delivered an enlightening keynote, emphasizing the potential of using specific plants to clean polluted water. He discussed plant species suitable for phytoremediation, including water hyacinth, sunflowers, mustard, cat-tails, foxtails, and fast-growing aquatic weeds. Wetlands made of PVC pipes and recycled plastic bottles provide stability for these plants.
The conference provided valuable insights and practical knowledge for the project’s success, thanks to Colonel Kapoor’s guidance. With support from our Principal and dedicated students, the Venalagadda Lake Cleaning Project aims to positively impact the local environment and serve as an inspiring ecological restoration example.
