A treasure trove of nature 11.2.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A visit to the world famous Yellowstone National Park (YsNP) in United States of America is a dream come true for any forest enthusiast, geologist, nature lover or photographer. A treasure trove of nature and wonder, I couldn't believe the magic that lay before my eyes when I went for a two-day tour in July 2013 with my family. Located primarily in the state of Wyoming, the National Park has a diverse ecosystem comprising lakes, canyons, rivers, mountain ranges and sub-alpine forests. Three deep canyons are located in the park, cut through the volcanic tuff of the Yellowstone Plateau by rivers. The Lewis River flows through Lewis Canyon in the south and the Yellowstone River has carved two colourful canyons. We saw many wonderful active volcanoes in the form of geysers, hot springs and mud pots. The most attractive geyser we saw is the 'Old Faithful Geyser' (OFG). It is named so as it has remained as it was, since it was discovered and faithfully continues to thrill visitors though others are drying up. ...

Residents to fund STP to save lake 11.2.2016 deccanherald.com
To check the flow of sewage into the Kundalahalli lake, members of Whitefield Rising and United Way of Bengaluru have come together to raise Rs 2 crore to set up a decentralised waste water treatment system without help from the government. Spread over 30 acres, the Kundalahalli lake is located near KR Puram in Bengaluru East. The study indicates that the lake is polluted by concentrated sewage from the catchment and stormwater drains. The stormwater carries urban litter, plastic and other solid wastes which are discharged into the lake. Sewage enters the lake from eight inlets. Arvind Keerthi from Whitefield Rising told Deccan Herald that the sewage treatment plant would be underground and needs no electricity. It functions based on gravitational flow. In the first phase, the work on an STP, which is able to treat 750 KLD of water, will be ready by June. "In the second phase, we will set up another treatment plant of a similar size. The recycled water will then be released into the lake," he said. ...

Residents to fund STP to save lake 11.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Calling for collective efforts to conserve water, former NASA scientist Dr Ashwin Mahesh on Thursday sought the support of the State government to fund the creation of 'Matthondu (another) Cauvery'. This, he said, is a realistic attempt towards making use of lake and rainwater instead of depending on River Cauvery. In his speech at the annual water conference - 'Industry-Government-Community Partnerships for Sustainable Water Management', - Mahesh asked the government to allot Rs 150 crore in the next budget towards this. Elaborating on 'Matthondu Cauvery scheme,' he said the City itself can create another Cauvery. About 700 MLD of water could be used by improving just six lakes. Conserving 150 to 200 MLD of water is possible if 50 per cent of the City's buildings instal rainwater harvesting facility. Adopting dual piping in industrial areas and in all future buildings would save 30 MLD. Behaviour modification and pricing reforms can save 200 MLD in 10 years, groundwater recharge can provide 500 MLD in ...
