Plans to divert sewage water into water treatment plants and not into lakes were also approved. Minister KTR at an event in 2022 said, “There were days when lakes in Telangana were so clean that people used to drink them. However, over time the condition of the lakes deteriorated. The Telangana Government is working towards restoring the lakes and ponds.”
