Bengaluru let 3.76 tmcft of rainwater go down the drain in 21 days 18.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru let 3.76 tmcft of rainwater and sewage water flow into drains in Tamil Nadu and eventually to the Bay of Bengal, from August 18 to September 7. The finding of the ongoing 'Bengaluru Urbanisation and Sustainable Water Management Study' comes at a time when the state government is preparing the data on diverting west-flowing rivers to meet the city's water needs. The study by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) focuses on assessing how much water is lost every year and how much can the city hold. "The 3.76-tmcft loss is only from Kommaghatta and Chellaghatta (KC) valleys. This loss is because of silt accumulation in lakes and stormwater drains. The lakes and stormwater drains have lost their water-holding capacity due to the accumulation of silt, which has led to water wastage. The government is unable to withhold even part of the rainwater which the city gets through proper rainwater harvesting (RWH) mechanisms. Instead, it's thinking of diverting west-flowing rivers and getting water from ...

The twain have combined more seamlessly for G Raju, an ace beekeeper from Harati village in Kolar district. What began as a labour of love years ago has turned into a lifetime passion. Travelling across the State, he maintains over 700 beehive boxes in farms, gardens, orchards and backyards. Honeybees demand nothing from the beneficiaries except some space where their industriousness could blossom uninterrupted. And in turn, they help the farmers increase the yield through pollination. Raju became interested in bees around the turn of the century while working in an apiary in Punjab. Back in Karnataka in 2001, he rented a house in Bengaluru and placed some beehive boxes in the green surroundings. Bees began to hover around and he saw the potential for adding more boxes. A session of training in Bhagamandala in Kodagu led him to take beekeeping as the main source of livelihood. He decided to place beehive ...
