Invasive species has been identified as one of the prominent threats to wetland biodiversity conservation. Manual removal of invasive species like water hyacinth, water cabbage and water chestnut has been initiated in partnership with local community based organizations. The removed invasive species are dumped in a designated area to check their dispersal. Nine hectares of lake has been cleaned so far. A permanent mechanism to remove and dispose these invasive species has been initiated by employing 6 local community members. They will be paid by the lake management authority from the fund generated through tourism around the lake.
