Save our water bodies, emulate Jakkur lakers 29.9.2019
Centuries ago, people had the vision and wisdom to create water bodies in the terrain that we now call Bengaluru. Bunds or earthen dams were built across natural valleys and these became water storage zones during the monsoons, which were used essentially for irrigation. The water bodies were linked via large canals or rajakaluves, which carried rain water from an upper lake to a lower. And a network of smaller canals connected to the rajakaluves, emptied into the lake too. As one lake overflowed, it would fill the next.  Rain water flowed from North to South-East and North to South-West, along the natural gradient of the land. Each of Bengaluru"s three main valley systems - Hebbal, Koramangala-Challaghatta, Vrishbhavathi - had a chain of lakes/reservoirs, which  besides supporting  diverse life forms in and around them, played an integral role in recharging ground water, aiding irrigation and cooling the environment. In addition, the fresh water created an important ecosystem in the ...

Breaches in SRLIP bund; works come under scanner 14.9.2019
Khammam: The flooded  Godavari in Bhadradri district exposed the lack of quality of the bund works of the Sitarama Lift Irrigation Project (SRLIP). Breaches were caused to the bund and floodwater flowed into the main canal, overflowing the main aqueduct. The aqueduct was built across the Bandiregulavagu and is located between the two villages of Amerda and Ammagaripalli, under Aswapuram mandal. An earthen bund was also constructed on both sides of the aqueduct canal so that water reach does not flood the villages. The Godavari floodwater and the rivulet caused an overflow.

The officials completed the repairs immediately. The incident raised doubts about the quality of the earthen works of the SRLIP. The ...
