The public is shocked when a lake in Chennai suddenly turned pink in colour.

Lake in Perungudi turns bright pink in colour; here\'s why

Pink Lake

The lake, located in the Chennai metropolitan area, has now turned pink. Thus travelers passing through this place are eager to take a photo of Pink Lake. Indumati, a professor at IIT Chennai, has studied the color of the lake.

It is said that methane is formed when compost is produced with less oxygen in swamps. Environmentalists say that cyanobacteria will then turn to methane and grow rapidly, turning water bodies pink.

Environmentalist Nithyanan Jayaraman, who spoke about the pink lake's pink color, said, "When we dump cyanobacteria in polluted swamps, we produce less oxygen-rich fertilizer, which in turn promotes the growth of methane-absorbing cyanobacteria."

As cyanobacteria grow in the water, the algae will spread and reduce the amount of oxygen in the water. Environmentalists have warned that this could pose a serious threat to aquatic life, including plants and fish. Environmentalists have advised the public not to use Lake Perungudi as it has changed color.
