Largescale planting of eucalyptus and acacia trees under the Social Forestry scheme to meet the firewood and timber demand not only squeezed the districts of its rich underground water table, but also made annual rainfall in the region a mirage of its former self. Even though the state government had directed the Karnataka Forest Department (KFD) not to create Eucalyptus plantations back in 2011 saying it would have a serious impact on the ground water levels, there was no proper documentation on the damage caused to the ecosystem.

The impending water calamity of Bengaluru 2.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Come summer, there is popular anger against water woes of Bengaluru. In numerous seminars and symposia, pious resolutions are passed. But words do not produce water. Consider these facts: Currently, the population of the city under the BBMP limits is 11 million, excluding the urbanised areas of Devanahalli, Hosakote, Nelamangala, Bidadi, Doddaballapura. The population of the Bengaluru Metropolitan area already exceeds 13 million which requires drinking water. By 2031, Metropolitan Bengaluru's population will be 20 million. At even 100 litres per capita, the domestic demand will be 2,000 MLD (million litres per day) and with another 250 MLD for non-domestic use, the net demand will be 2,250 MLD. Even if leakage is reduced to 20% from its present 40%, the gross supply should be 2,800 MLD. With 29 tmc (thousand million cubic feet), or 2,260 MLD, which is the outer limit of Cauvery water available to the city (and legally half of Bengaluru is outside Cauvery basin), and with only 20% leakage, the water ...

BWSSB to act against contractor 8.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Manual Scavenging Act clearly prohibits anyone from entering a live manhole without proper safety gear, according to BWSSB chairman Tushar Girinath. "It is very unfortunate that this has happened," he said. Girinath said it had been wrongly reported that it was maintenance work. "It was the project of laying lines between KR Puram and Kadubeesanahalli where in between, there are manholes," he said. The contract was given to Ramky, which had not completed the work. And the chief engineer had given them a notice as this manhole was overflowing and was regularly collapsing, he added. "Of course, criminal cases have been registered and the BWSSBwill also take legal action against the contractor. But for that, we will have to examine the legal clause as the project was signed following World Bank guidelines," Girinath said. An internal inquiry has been ordered to examine what made the contractor breach rules and allow people to enter the manhole at night and what were the procedural lapses. The earlier ...
