YERCAUD: Malco has undertaken the massive work of removing the water hyacinth and other wild weeds from the Yercaud lake from Sunday.

"The work will go on for a few days," said its Assistant Manager (Mines), K. M. Murali. The lake has not been desilted for long. The District administration had drawn up a detailed `restoration' project for the lake for which the Government sanctioned Rs. 1 crore.

Accordingly the Collector, A. Sukumaran asked the Malco firm to weed out growth in the lake. A team of officials from the firm including its General Manager (Mines), C. Natesan and Yercaud Mines Manager, R. Chandrasekar, supervised the work. "As one-third of the lake has been covered with the weeds, the tourists cannot enjoy the boating," said Mr. Murali. After removing the weeds, they can reach the Deer Park.
