Due to lack of renovation, various items of the pool are being stolen. Efforts are being made to keep bamboo running with the help and funding of local residents and local members to avoid accidents. Every day, students of North Fulhata Government Primary School and students of various educational institutions and hundreds of local residents move through this pool at risk. Children, students and elderly people are afraid to move around the pool as there are no barriers for safety on both sides of the pool.
