Kerala Water Authority supplies turbid water 15.10.2017
KOCHI: The turbidity level in the drinking water supplied to the city and outskirts from the Kerala Water Authority"s Aluva pump house is higher than permissible norms. As the stock of lime at the pump house has depleted, water is being treated only with alum (Aluminium sulfate). Though the permissible level of turbidity in  treated water is 5 NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units), the water now being supplied to the city contains 7 to 8 NTU, admit employees of the KWA. KWA also had to cut the quantity of water being supplied to west Kochi areas. Only 120 MLD water is being pumped from  the plant as against the normal 130 MLD.

For Rajesh Awasthi, Delhi's winter always meant crisp, sunny weekends that his family would often spend picnicking in parks, or near India Gate. Then the pleasant season gradually became a health hazard. "This air was our lifeline. We have made it so toxic that it now takes lives. It's heartbreaking to see my five-year-old son wake up in the middle of the night, coughing and choking," said the 35-year-old MNC executive at his South Delhi apartment. The air in Delhi, one of the world's most polluted cities, has already reached alarming levels, according to the government's real-time air quality index. Thousands are scrambling to hospitals, complaining of breathlessness, watering of eyes, cough, and wheezing. With Diwali, when the quantum of toxic pollutants spikes fourfold, only days away, the Supreme Court (SC) has banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR till November 1, almost two weeks after the festival of lights (October 19) will be over.
