According to government, the rainwater flowing from the Chamundi Hills is a major supply of water for the lake. “But in 2018, water from the hills did not reach the lake as there was no top rainfall in any respect. As a end result, the water degree in the lake became low within the monsoon season itself. Even inside the worst drought years, boating became cancelled simplest at the end of the summer season. But this year, we’re dealing with water crisis in February itself,” defined some other officer aware about the improvement.
Usha Kiran, a visitor from Kerala had stated that, these types of years Karanji Lake turned into packed with migratory birds till March. “But now the number has come down. Poor water excellent and horrific odour from the lake drives away the travelers too,” she said.

Somasekhar, naturalist and former training officer of the zoo, from the remaining 10-12 years stated, “Reasons can be attributed to numerous morning sports like clapping, laughter membership, negative excellent of water and many others. Fish harvesting is another challenge. All these have resulted in migratory birds moving far from this lake. Those birds which may be seen at different lakes aren’t discovered here.”
