Sukhna Wildfire Sanctuary Chandigarh It forms the part of Sukhna lake catchment area falling in Shivalik hills. Shivalik hills are ecologically sensitive and geologically unstable and thus are highly prone to soil erosion during rains. The soil in the Shivaliks is sandy, embedded with pockets of clay which is highly susceptible to erosion by surface run off.

In 1958 Sukhna lake was constructed and in sixties & early seventies, the rate of siltation of the lake was very high due to high rate of soil erosion from its catchment area. In 1988, up to 66% of the original water holding capacity of the lake was lost due to siltation. In order to minimize & control soil erosion from hilly catchment area, by Forest Department various vegetative and engineering methods were adopted. These soil & water conservation measures under-taken on sustained basis yielded very good results and the rate of siltation of the lake has reduced drastically.
