Wular Conservation & Management Authority

The area of Wular Lake, which is the only drainage for the four main rivers and three main lakes, has shrunk from 130 sq.km to 24 sq.km due to encroachments and accumulation of thousands of tonnes of silt annually.  In this context, Wular Conservation and Management authority is carrying out dredging to remove the accumulated silt and re-verifying the boundaries of wular to ascertain the encroachments for a time bound recovery.
