 Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial

A part of the T.S. Canal that passes through the Kollam town is generally described as Kollam Thodu (Kollam Canal). Once it was a direct water way from Trivandrum to Shornur. This canal has provided a very cheap transporting system to a large section of the people. Accumulation of waste in different places of the canal has seriously blocked the openings of the canal to the Ashtamudi Lake. The practice of dumping industrial waste, plastics, poultry waste and opening of the toilets to the canal have seriously contaminated the water and transformed this canal into a breeding place for mosquitoes and diseases. As the canal has become a severe environmental problem, some young people took the initiative to meet the people who are residing at the sides of this canal. They conducted discussions with the people.
