Water Restoration in Bangalore

To support Intel’s commitment to achieve net positive water use, we have funded two water restoration projects benefiting Bangalore, India. Once fully implemented, these projects will restore an estimated 101 million gallons each year. This page provides a summary of Intel-funded projects to support Bangalore’s water resources.

Dyavasandra Lake Restoration

Location: Bangalore (Bengaluru), India

Implementation Partner: CLEAN International

Estimated Restoration Benefit 1: 67 million gallons/year (MGY)

Project Status: Initiated in 2020

Project Description: CLEAN International and local partner SayTrees have developed this project to address water scarcity through restoration of Dyavasandra Lake. The project includes increasing the capacity of the degraded lake to promote groundwater recharge and rejuvenate the lake, which will provide habitat benefits, improved water quality through natural wetland filtration, planting of 1,500 trees, and create an outdoor space for local community members.

Lake Nanjapura Restoration

Location: Bangalore (Bengaluru), India

Implementation Partner: CLEAN International

Estimated Restoration Benefit 1: 34 million gallons/year (MGY)

Project Status: Initiated in 2020; began restoring water in 2020

Project Description: India—having one of the largest populations in the world—is suffering from extreme water stress and significant groundwater depletion. Bengaluru, once known as the “city of lakes,” has undergone significant urban development that has caused depletion of many of these lakes and groundwater. This project will restore Lake Nanjapura - supporting groundwater replenishment, the planting of more than 6,000 trees, and the development of a walking path around the lake.

Restore 100% Global Water Use


Over the last two decades, our sustainable water management efforts have enabled us to conserve billions of gallons of water and return approximately 80% of our water use back to our communities. Now, we are broadening our focus to restore 100% of our global water use.
