Images of Bellandur Lake, the city's largest water body, covered with a foamy mix of filth, routinely make the headlines. Large water storage tanks line the rooftops of Bangalore's new commercial and residential buildings, which are almost entirely dependent on private water suppliers. With Bangalore's population likely to reach 20 million by 2031, the city's water troubles are likely to get worse. Water stations have already popped up across the city for people to buy drinking water. Some citizens' groups in Bangalore have begun to collaborate with the city administration to help restore the fresh water lakes.
