Drying after Mud bath at the Lake. On July 15, 2011. Poor agricultural management and frantic rush for development are responsible for the lake’s desiccation, which represents a loss of nearly 90% of its original surface since the 1970’s. “An estimated 18 millions people would be affected directly by the drought of the lake but nobody is taking action.” Only recently has the government devised a few restoration ideas, and none has been implemented yet.
