Sunday story: Victoria brimming with history and water! 20.8.2017
History lives in our ancient shrines, palaces and forts, in the glorious ruins of many a monument, which has fallen to the vagaries of time. But who would have thought that history also lives in our lakes?  It does. The people in the little village of Dambal in Gadag district would swear by this fact and not hesitate to pledge their unflinching loyalty to Queen Victoria!  All because the former Empress of Imperial India built a huge lake for them, which continues to feed their fields and homes amidst the recurring droughts plaguing the Hyderabad-Karnataka region. Vittal Shastri explores the history of this amazing water body. One hundred and forty years have passed since the colonial rulers descended on Dambal during the Great Famine in 1876-78 when more than 55 lakh people starved to death in the country. But the villagers recall it like it happened yesterday when the project was taken up with labourers employed on the lines of the present rural employment guarantee scheme and paid minimum ...

Pisciculture on lines of farming for profit 20.8.2017
Rajahmundry: Fisheries authorities are taking up two model programmes called 'Chandranna Raithu Kshetralu' and 'Organic Farming' to culture fish, shrimps, crabs and other species similar on the lines of agriculture, to help enhance their production and enable farmers to earn good income in West Godavari. As a part of 'Chandranna Raithu Kshetralu' scheme, the authorities are encouraging farmers to take up aquaculture with pond automation as it helps boost up fish production with less impact on environment. "Under pond automation, electric equipment fitted with censors will be monitoring the potential of Hydrogen (pH), dissolved oxygen and salinity in the water in the pond. The equipment is designed in such a way that it records readings for every three hours and sends them to the farm owner on his mobile phone," a fisheries official said.  Officials said that this helps the farmer keep a tab on these vital parameters in the pond water and in case the there is a ...

Board asks AP, Telangana to preserve Krishna dam water for drinking 20.8.2017
Hyderabad: In view of the precarious water situation in dams on the Krishna river in AP and TS due to scanty inflows, the Krishna River Management Board has decided to ask both states to preserve the storage only for the purpose of meeting drinking water needs, instead of planning for use for agricultural purposes. Board member-secretary Sameer Chatterjee told this newspaper the board, during its scheduled meeting on August 22 in Amaravati, will insist that the governments limit use of water from the major dams and projects for the purpose of meeting drinking water needs. He said even in the third week of August, there were no inflows into the Krishna based projects in both the states. "Both states need to be very vigilant at this time due to scanty inflows and take such steps against using the available storage for irrigation purpose. Both governments should keep the storage only for drinking water needs," Mr Ch-atterjee said. He said the board, meeting outside its headquarters for the first ...

Vijayawada: Toxic discharges from cement projects and chemical factories upstream Krishna river threaten to overshadow "blue and green" capital city Amaravati. Industries in Jaggiahapeta, Nandi-gama, Gudimetla, Ramanapeta and other areas were allegedly polluting the river water, but the Pollution Control Authority is turning a blind eye to it. Huge biotech factories in Peddavaram and Keesara are polluting Munneru, which is a major tributary to river Krishna. "The dream of Chief Minsiter N. Chandra-babu to construct eco-friendly capital city is in danger with huge industries polluting river Krishna. CRUX Biotech, located at Peddavaram village of Nandigama mandal, has become a big problem for us. It produces ethanol, a form of spirit from corn. Many lift irrigation schemes are operating in this area and lakhs of people in and around 40 villages use this polluted water for drinking purposes," social activist K. Ramana Babu said.
