319 apartments dubbed 'polluters' despite linking sewage to UGD 24.9.2017
The attempt to put the blame of polluting Bellandur lake on apartments has backfired. In a report submitted to the National Green Tribunal (NGT), the state government has classified 319 apartments in the lake's catchment area as 'polluters' although all of them let out sewage to BWSSB's underground drainage. By this definition, all the citizens of Bengaluru should be considered as polluters since the UGD is the default channel to ferry sewage to the treatment plants. "BWSSB is the culprit. Over the last many years, they should have set up larger centralised STPs at the exit points of the underground drains. They have miserably failed in doing this, which has meant that 480 Million Litres Daily (MLD) of sewage is flowing into the Bellandur lake from their network," Srikanth Narasimhan, general secretary, Bangalore Apartments' Federation (BAF) told DH. According to the report, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) and BWSSB had inspected 755 apartments in the Bellandur catchment area. As many ...

The Urban Development Department (UDD) has asked the Anti-Corruption Bureau to probe the financial scam by BBMP garbage contractors, in the name of 6,600 fictitious pourakarmikas.
