TONS of dead #fish float in a lake in #Chennai, #India
It has been over a week since residents have been complaining of stench in the area around Thiruneermalai lake, as tonnes of dead fish have been rotting in the almost dried-up lake.
The residents alleged that the sewage from Madras Special Economic Zone (MEPZ) in Tambaram was being let into the dry lake, which in turn killed the fish, reported The Times of India.
Many residents said that their complaints have fallen on deaf ears. “Authorities are not taking any action to remove the dead fish and nobody seems to be concerned,” said a resident, quoted the media report.
“People have to cover their faces while crossing Chennai Bypass near Thiruneermalai. The stink is spreading throughout the area causing serious problem to locals,” he added.
