Vasco’s Maimollem Lake to be transformed into tourist attraction

13th January 2023

Maimollem Lake to become a tourist attraction. The lake restoration project received administrative approval with Rs 1 crore funds. After obtaining an NOC from Mormugao comunidade the work will start, says Vasco MLA. The lake’s restoration is happening under the Amrit Sarovar scheme of the Government of India.

On Thursday morning, Vasco MLA Krishna Daji Salkar conducted a site inspection of the Maimollem lake. The purpose of restoring and beautifying the lake is to make it a tourist attraction in Vasco.. After inspection, Vasco MLA Krishna Salkar informed reporters that a few years ago the Maimollem lake was very beautiful and it had water lilies, lotuses, etc. But in the last few years the lake has lost its beauty, and there were some unacceptable, unhygienic activities such as the release of raw sewage into the lake’s water, etc.

He further added that due to these unhygienic activities, flies, reptiles and other creatures started frequenting this area. Salkar said that in any village or town, having a water body is important and we need to protect it.

Maimollem has played an important role during the monsoon as it falls under a catchment area, and it has helped in avoiding any waterlogging near Swatantra Path. Therefore, it is crucial to revive and restore the water body.

Upon asking Salkar how he would sort the release of sewage and the beautification work of the lake said that he would take a NOC from the sewerage section of the PWD so that the proposed sewage pumping station work starts quickly. This will handle the sewage from Mangor, Shantinagar, Maimollem, etc properly, and the lake will remain free from sewage.

He also added that he would take the biodiversity aspect into account while restoring the Maimollem lake so that it becomes a tourist attraction.
