Stench from immersed idols puts off Sankey Tank walkers 20.9.2016 deccanherald.com
Morning walkers at Sankey Tank had to cut their stroll short as an overpowering stench due to the immersion of Ganesha idols filled the air on Tuesday. When civic workers started removing 20 truckloads of Ganesha idols that were soaked in the immersion pond of the lake for the last 15 days, a rotten smell went through the air, putting walkers off. The workers were drawing out remnants of the immersed idols, partially rotten offerings, dilapidated idols made of plaster of Paris and other solid waste dumped in the pond. "This lake is usually well-maintained, but when I went this morning, I had to cut my walk short as the stench near the immersion pond was unbearable. Even after the festival, people would leave garlands around a tree," said Anusha, a walker. Local corporator Sumangala B of Aramane Nagar said that around ten truckloads of idols and other items like garland were removed on Tuesday. She said that the remaining idols would be removed from the pond in the next two days. She attributed the stench ...

Bengaluru staring at a severe water crisis, warns IISc study 18.9.2016 deccanherald.com
An ongoing study by a team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has indicated that Bengaluru will soon face a huge water crisis. The study that is likely to be out soon says that if no immediate steps are taken, the city will go dry. Prof T V Ramachandra from the Centre of Energy and Wetlands Research Group at the IISc said that despite floods in July 2016, the city is set to experience water crisis because of improper planning and ineffective implementation of the existing policies. The Cauvery water dispute with the neighbouring Tamil Nadu will also have a bearing on the city's water needs because of increasing dependence on piped water. This apart, the study points out that wastage due to leakages and indiscriminate use by people is also adding to the growing problem. Prof Ramachandra said that Bengaluru annually receives 750- 800 mm rainfall while the city lakes can hold only 35 tmcft. "At least 98% water bodies in the city are encroached upon,'' he said. Of the 35 tmcft water ...

After government's cold response, residents step in to save Varthur lake 18.9.2016 deccanherald.com
After the recent catfish kill, volunteers from Whitefield Rising group (Varthur lake team) and Varthur Rising have decided to save the water body without depending on the government. To start with, volunteers plan to equip all the 17 inlets at Varthur lake with solid waste traps that prevent waste from entering the lake. The waste collected would be disposed of with the help of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at regular intervals. Jagadish Reddy, a volunteer from Whitefield Rising,said: "A mesh to hold macrophages (weeds) floating around the lake would be placed. This would help keep the water body healthy. There are also plans to set up a water treatment apparatus after consultations about a suitable technology at Varthur Idgah Road inlet on a pilot basis. We are in talks with a few sponsors and hope to execute the projects at the earliest." There are two sewage outlets located in north and south east side of the lake. Sewage from upstream, apartments and effluents from industries besides ...
