Water ATMs transform lives of villagers in Greater Noida 16.7.2017 DNA: Top News
This nondescript village on the periphery of Greater Noida, is as rural as can be. Narrow lanes that come to a standstill every time a car passes by, fields are sown with crops of the season, idle kids engaging themselves in novel games, veiled women washing clothes by the community pond, this village looks like many others. But that is where the similarity with its counterparts ends. Ranhera is now busy scripting a unique story of its own, one that has a water station as the main protagonist. Installed by an enterprising villager who had seen his village falling victim to water borne diseases with alarming frequency, the Save Water Station is slowly changing the fortunes of Ranhera. Twenty eight-year-old Rahul Sharma brought this water station which provides clean, potable water to more than 250 families, in 2015, after he decided to do a homecoming from the neighbouring city of Faridabad, Haryana. After scouting around, he utilised the outer portion of his house to set up a clean water plant, with the ...

Civic bodies want leaking DJB pipelines fixed, will write to LG 8.6.2017 DNA: Top News
In a bid to prevent an outbreak of vector-borne diseases in the city, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led municipal corporations in Delhi are all set to write to the Lieutenant Governor (LG), seeking action regarding Delhi Jal Board's (DJB) leaking pipelines. The leakage leads to accumulation of water, which encourages mosquito breeding. Larvae of dengue and chikungunya breed in fresh water. According to the civic body, mosquitoes breed mainly in artificially collected clean water in desert coolers, uncovered storage containers, overhead tanks, old tyres, etc. The matter was taken up for discussion in the House meeting on Wednesday. The corporations have identified 20 such leakage spots each. "We plan to write to the LG. The DJB must fix its leaking pipelines, which, besides being a waste of fresh water, also allows mosquito breeding. These areas mostly remain neglected and even fumigation is not done there," a senior South Corporation official said. Some of the areas identified, so far, include Bara ...
