A popular tourist destination, the hill town of Coonoor in the Nilgiris, was suffering due to garbage blocking its streams and rivers.
Early European travellers have commented on the fresh and sparkling waters of the streams in this hill town. In the recent years, encroachments and the garbage had nearly killed the feeder streams that flow into the Coonoor river, reducing them to sewers.
Concerted action by Coonoor citizens, with support from the district administration, has helped in cleaning the waterways and maintaining them.
