KSPCB inspects polluted Doddabidarakallu lake 24.6.2016 deccanherald.com
Members of Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) inspected Doddabidarakallu lake at Nagasandra on Friday. They issued a warning to the apartments, industries and households which were letting waste water into the water body. The lake that has a history of more than 100 years is on the verge of dying due to rampant encroachment, illegal activities and sewage water flow. To take stock of the situation, the board members visited the water body. They were shocked to find waste water from various sources entering and polluting the lake. "We were told by locals to inspect the lake and see its state. We could not verify as to which government agency the lake maintenance falls under, however," said a board member, Dr Jai Prakash Alva. Sources in Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board said a study is being undertaken and soon a sewage treatment plant (STP) would be set up to treat the waste water. They added that the Central funds for lake development would be utilised for setting up the STP. The ...

Water-scarce & unlivable: that's B'luru in 2020 24.6.2016 deccanherald.com
Four years from now, 93% of Bengaluru's landscape will be filled with paved surface or built-up area, resulting in a drastic decrease in open spaces and green cover. In short, the Garden City has a grim, water-scarce, unlivable and non-resilient future. That's the warning given in Bengaluru Vision 2020, a research paper published in this week's 'Current Science' magazine. The paper is authored by T V Ramachandra and Bharath H Aithal, scientists from the Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. It is a follow-up of their previous study, which Deccan Herald reported in May this year. The paper lists seven major implications of urbanisation on Bengaluru. "Bengaluru would witness 93% of urban cover and only 7% of open spaces and green cover in 2020. This would make the region GHG-rich, water-scarce, non-resilient and unlivable, depriving the city dwellers of clean air, water and environment," the study says. Bengaluru saw a whopping 1,005% concretisation or increase of paved ...

KSPCB issues notice to Palike over Sompura lake pollution 22.6.2016 deccanherald.com
Taking a serious note of the damage to the Sompura lake due to the leachate from Lingadheeranahalli waste treatment plant, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has served a notice on the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the plant managers. Following a report in Deccan Herald on the destruction caused to the Sompura lake, KSPCB chairperson Lakshman visited the Lingadheeranahalli plant and the lake on Wednesday. He noticed the untreated leachate flowing from the plant and getting mixed with the lake water. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Lakshman said: "I have asked the BBMP officials and the waste treatment plant managers to appear in person on June 27 to explain why the untreated leachate continues to flow from the plant and measures taken to check its flow. I have also asked the residents of the area to attend the meeting along with the BBMP officials." During the visit the plant managers said the water used for washing the garbage transportation vehicle is flowing into the drain ...

No new buildings in lake buffer zones: Koliwad 22.6.2016 deccanherald.com
No new constructions will be allowed in buffer zones around lakes in Bengaluru urban and rural districts, said Congress MLA KBKoliwad. Koliwad, who heads a Legislative Assembly committee to look into tank encroachments, told reporters in Bengaluru on Wednesday the committee had initiated a survey around lakes in the two districts following the National Green Tribunal's (NGT) imposition of 75 metres as the buffer zone. He said the committee could not give any directions with regard to already completed projects in buffer zones. However, licences/permissions will not be given to any new structures. The committee has temporarily stopped works on all ongoing projects. Though the committee has issued notices to stop registration of flats in an apartment complex built by real estate developer Valmark in Hulimavu and Arakere, construction activities had continued, he said. Valmark, he said, has built a 34-storey building on the lake bed. The government's role in stalling these activities is imperative, he ...

'Won't quit panel probing lake encroachments' 22.6.2016 deccanherald.com
Congress MLA KBKoliwad (in pic) said he would not resign as chairman of the Legislative Assembly committee probing tank encroachments even after he becomes the Assembly Speaker. Koliwad also told reporters in Bengaluru, "If I wanted to, I could have resigned from the post. But I am eager to complete the report on lake encroachments in Bengaluru and submit it. This report will be historical," he added. He said the process to get him elected to the post of Legislative Assembly Speaker has been initiated. The state Cabinet is yet to approve the proposal and send it to the Governor, who will then issue a notification. Koliwad said that if there is a delay in conducting elections, then pro tem Speaker Shivashanakara Reddy would preside over the legislature session for a day or two. The session is scheduled to start on July 4. Koliwad said his style of functioning as Speaker would differ from that of his predecessor Kagodu Thimmappa. "Each one has a different style of functioning. But my main objective is to ...

BBMP's 'scientific' waste plant ravages once-pristine lake 21.6.2016 deccanherald.com
From a distance, the Sompura lake near Banashankari 6th Stage in southwestern Bengaluru brims with pristine water. The birds, however, stay away from it. This was not the case until six months ago. Many winged guests, especially cranes and migratory birds, would flock to this lake which was home to a variety of fish and frogs. Then the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) set up a "scientific" waste-processing plant nearby. Promising to adopt best practices in waste management, the BBMP set up 10 "scientific" waste-processing units in Bengaluru, including one at Lingadheeranahalli. But it failed to live up to the promise as untreated leachate from the waste-processing unit has spelt doom for the Sompura lake which was developed by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) at Rs four crore. N Lakshman, a farmer who lives next to the lake, said his two cows and four sheep died in April after drinking its poisonous water while the fish just disappeared. Shepherds and cowboys now keep their livestock ...

In an attempt to increase the green cover and help Bengaluru retain the tag of 'Garden City', at least 150 saplings of different species were planted in and around Vijinapura lake in Ramamurthy Nagar on Sunday. People from different walks of life came together as a part of a noble initiative organised by Greenvein, a pan-India environment conservation organisation in association with All India Malayali Association (AIMA) and employees of CSG International. Jamun, neem, cherry, blueberry saplings, among others were planted. Secretary of AIMA, Vinu Thomas, said they aim to plant one lakh saplings in the city out of which 2,000 saplings have already been planted in the past three years. "We have covered Hosur Road near Christ College, TC Palya, KR Puram General Hospital, among other places. This is the best time to plant saplings as the monsoon has just set in and the programme was held to commemorate the World Environment Day," he added. The organisers, encouraged by the response from the public and ...
