austrian scientists might help clean the Dal Lake in Srinagar. The Austrian Deputy Chief of Mission in Delhi, Peter Launsky-Tieffenthal has said that a scientist from the Austrian ministry of agriculture has conducted a study on the Lake to determine whether Austrian technology could be used in the cleaning up of the Lake. He said that the proposed project would also explore the possibility of providing drinking water.

Launsky-Tieffenthal said that the proposed project would envisage the building of a canal around the lake into which sewer water would be released and treated before being allowed to enter the Dal Lake.
