ENVIRONMENTAL  IMPROVEMENT  &  SUSTAINABLE CONSERVATION  OF  TWIN  LAKES  IN  MOKOKCHUNG

 

The Scheme for conservation of Twin Lakes, namely Amok Lushi (under Chuchuyimlang village) and Yimdong Awantsung (under Mokokchung village), was sanctioned for Rs. 25.83 crore by the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change, Govt. of India  under the National Lake Conservation Plan. 55 % of the works have been completed.

 

These two lakes, which are perhaps the only large natural water bodies near Mokokchung town, are highly polluted due to dumping of wastes and discharge of untreated liquid waste from the surrounding houses. The project is targeted to conserve the lakes which can be sources of drinking water as well as for recreational activities such as angling and boating.
