Overview

Nainital was discovered by an Englishman named P. Barron in 1839. The glorious gem-like lake and the virgin hills appealed to him so strongly that he left a flourishing  sugar business to settle here. And so it began. First the holidaying English then the  Indian maharajas and then the Indian public. Nainital has never looked back as a summer retreat since. The headquarters of the district by the same name; Nainital is  the largest and most popular hill-station of the Kumaon region. Making it your base you can visit other spots such as Ranikhet, Kausani, Mukteshwar and Almora. The  heart of the destination is the Naini Lake named after the emerald green eyes of the Goddess Parvati, who is also the patron goddess of the region. From around the lake  rise wooded slopes, one side being heavily populated by a large township. Nainital is  also intimately linked with legendary hunter turned conservationist Jim Corbett.

In recent times some enlightened citizens have come forward to halt the degradation of this beautiful town. Since 2007 every 18 September is now observed as 'Clean up Nainital Day', in rememembrance of devastating landslide of 18 September 1880, which consumed 151 lives. On this historic day students and other sections of society join hands to clean the town. Further, a women's group 'Maitri', does this cleaning work voluntarily now on every 18th. Taking cue from this, the Municipality and District administration have started the scheme of 'Mission Butterfly' for the solid waste management and have appointed 'Lake Wardens' from the civil society to keep an eye on the polluters.
 
In recent years with the help of government and local environmental groups the lake Aeration project was started. The primary aim of the project was to decrease the BOD (biological oxygen demand) of the lake water. Anaerobic digestion of lake sediments is a much slower process than with aerobic digestion. Where aerobic digestion can result in the control or reduction of organic sediment levels, anaerobic digestion almost always allows organic sediments levels to increase. During anaerobic digestion, bacterial enzymes and lack of oxygen make the nutrients in the bottom sediments soluble. Then the nutrients return to the water column and are available to support new weed and algae growth. Anaerobic conditions at the lake bottom have a damaging effect on the food chain that supports fish populations as well as reducing or eliminating fish habitat, ultimately resulting in a reduction of the fish quality, size and quantity.
To resolve this problem and improve the quality of the lake water, many underground high pressure jets were laid near the lake bed at various places throughout the lake. The jets are supplied with highly pressurised air through a compressor located near the Golu Devta temple. This compressed air is released via a net of jets near the lake bed, the air bubbles through the water. In the process aeration the water and improving the quality of water. Today one can see the results of hard work and efforts of the past few years.
The lake water has become visibly cleaner and BOD levels have reduced dramatically. To complement the lake aeration project, with the help of scientist from the Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. A number of plankton and algae eating fishes were introduced in the lake. This has resulted in speeding up the cleaning up process. Now unlike in the past no more dead fishes on the lake surface. In fact now the large number of colourful healthy fishes are a beautiful sight to see for tourists and local alike.
