Flood water entering through breaches in embankments has severely affected the ecosystem of Dal Lake in Srinagar, Jammu Kashmir, northern India , damaging two sewage treatment plants and several pumping stations. Tons of silt and sewage including traces of petrol and diesel has affected flora, fauna and turbidity of water in the Lake. The level of water rose to 21 feet which is higher than the normal level of 9 feet and the danger level 12 feet. Imported machines for digging up and de-weeding were used to rescue locals and tourists trapped in the lake.
