The Thane Creek becomes a dumping site for immersion water and waste from the Ganesh festival – see article below.
Lakes of Thane
Thane also hosts several lakes of which the Masunda lake and the Upvan Lake are the largest. Nearly 35 lakes – small and large – exist in this city and become destinations for Ganesh immersion.
To protect these water bodies from pollutions the Thane Municipal Corporation has been constructing temporary immersion tanks however the manner of disposal of the material collected in these immersion tanks is still unclear.
