Restore Bellandur, other lakes, reduce pressure on Cauvery 26.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
A lake catching fire is an epochal event. Bellandur made news in the BBC, CNN, France News, TokyoTV,The Guardian etc around the world. The last time a lake burned was in 1969 when Cuyahoga river joining Erie Lake near Cleveland, USA started burning from dumping of sewage and industrial pollutants. This compelled the Nixon administration to create the Environment Protection Agency in 1970 and Clean Water Act in 1972. Afterwards, no lake is burning in the US. In Karnataka, the BWSSB was established in 1964 and the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act and the Pollution Control Board came into existence in 1974. It speaks volumes of law-implementation the last 40 years when lakes of Bengaluru — the Land of a Thousand Tanks — have started supplying fire instead of water. Human excreta is a taboo subject and is coyly termed "night soil" because traditionally, it was manually collected in pots mixed with soil especially from rich people's homes, usually in the night. It has been used as ...

Closure of 6 waste units led to city's downfall in cleanliness survey 5.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Poor waste management has taken a toll on 'Brand Bengaluru' as the city stood a distant 210th among 434 cities and towns in the latest cleanliness survey carried out by the Central government. Bengaluru's overall score was 968 (Municipal Self-Declaration: 365, On-site Observation: 269 and Citizen Feedback:334). The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike's (BBMP) resolutions on plastic ban, segregation of waste at source, penalty for littering, spitting and public urination were a non-starter, not to mention the rampant dumping of garbage in lakes, stormwater drains and burning them at public places. The insufficient number of public toilets also contributed in Bengaluru's poor performance in Swachh Survekshan 2017. The garbage problem that raised its ugly head in 2012 refuses to go away. To aggravate the problem, six waste-processing units, which were disposing of about 1,500 tonnes of waste generated in the city, remained shut following protests and poor handling of garbage. A major fire in September 2016 ...
