The Research and monitoring division of lakes and waterways development Authority is working in the field of research in terms of Physico-chemical, biological, microbiological, and hydrological studies carried for different basins viz Nehrupark, Nishat, Hazrat Bal, and Nigeen basins. It also carries the study on the sediment load of inflows into the lake.
