Sengani Amman Temple tank in Neelankarai is teeming with fish again – thanks to the efforts of The Art of Living (TAOL) volunteers. The temple tank that had fish in abundance started losing it in hundreds a day a few weeks back. When the corporation officials noticed this, they requested the help of TAOL.
The Art of Living volunteers had been saving many ponds by treating it with eco enzymes and also removing solid waste there, as part of its ‘Namma Ooru! Namma Kulam!’ initiative.
Along with a team of water management experts, the volunteers identified the quantum of eco enzymes needed for the temple tank and the two hour long treatment procedure was done in front of the corporation officials.
In under three days after the treatment, the mortality rate of the fish in the pond has reduced and Dissolved oxygen, BOD (biochemical oxygen demand ) and COD (chemical oxygen demand) values in the tank have also improved drastically.
Namma Ooru! Namma Kulam! is a special pond revival program rooting on scientific methods.
The team of volunteers have been working on treating many ponds for over 6 months now.
