Small permanent spring fed lake in village needs cleaning, as part of our strong village project: All ideas gratefully received


I am working with an NGO in Maharasthra (Shikshan Gram Shelter for homeless children) and we are commencing a Strong Village Project - our first village has a small lake which is totally polluted due to the usual reasons of washing, both animals and clothes, effluent runoff into the lake and long term continuous pollutants going into it.

Our first project is to build a washing shed for the women, as well as for the animals; get the lake walled around and prevent in various ways more pollutants from entering the water. But we will first need to clean the existing lake. I have been searching for possible biological agents to introduce, but without much luck. I would really appreciate any input from members here who may have ideas for us or anyone who has faced such a situation previously.

Thank you very much for your help.
