Musi river's rubber dam ineffective 14.6.2019
Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation had spent Rs 5.64 crore on a dam on the Musi River to impress the late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, but in just three months it became unusable and is now a problem for the Musi Riverfront Development Corporation (MRDC) as it has become choked with huge amounts of solid waste. The dam was built in 2009 using Austrian technology and was expected to hold enough water to flood the area behind it and recreate the magic of a river filled with water. It is now a breeding site for mosquitoes for 365 days a year and choked with sewage water. But it can be neither repaired nor removed. A corporation official claims that MRDC cannot remove the rubber dam since it would face audit issues. As per highly placed sources, the 80-metre rubber dam near the High Court was constructed as part of the Musi beautification project. The authorities back then stopped the upstream sewage water for a few weeks and pumped in Godavari water to give the impression that ...

BJP's Lekhi protests against water shortage, Delhi Jal Board calls it politicisation 11.6.2019
New Delhi: BJP lawmaker from New Delhi Meenakshi Lekhi today protested outside the Delhi Jal Board's RK Puram office against "water woes" being faced by the people of her constituency. She claimed that even municipal areas are facing water shortage and many places in her constituency lack piped water supply. The Delhi Jal Board (DJB), however, said the utility has been supplying water beyond its capacity and the BJP is "politicising the issue" instead of helping people. "Lady Hardinge staff quarters, and upper regions of Anand Parbat and Baljit Nagar lack piped water supply. Then there are areas like Naraina, Krishna Nagar and Arjun Nagar which have piped water supply, but there's no water for the past 10-15 days," Lekhi claimed. "There are regions that complain of pathetic water quality... This is all across RK Puram and every other place. There are places, such as Munrika village, where sewage water gets mixed with potable water," she alleged. "I ...

At 270 mgd, water supply reduced by 50 per cent 9.6.2019
Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) said that the water levels in the reservoirs of the Krishna river basin have dropped below the minimum drawdown level (MMDL) — holding at 507 feet against the MDDL of 510 feet in Nagarjunasagar and at 805 feet against the MDDL of 834 feet in Srisailam. A major concern for officials is that the state can utilise only around 10 tmc ft of the available water to serve its drinking water needs. Consequently, the city has been using a large share of the water available in the Krishna river basin. Additionally, water in the Godavari river basin —  in the Sriram Sagar Project (SRSP), Nizamsagar project, Singur, and Yellampally — has been depleting at an alarming pace. In the wake of the the situation, Water Board officials claimed that they will only be able to supply water through emergency pumping, and even that looks feasible not past the end of July. They said if the upstream catchment areas did not receive ...

Hyderabad: Garbage is being dumped along the banks of the Manikonda Lake, which is adjacent to Lanco Hills" $1.5 billion mega housing project. Piles of garbage are clearly visible near the walking track built on the banks of the lake. "I used to come here frequently with my grandchildren but now the smell has become unbearable. When I moved here with my family, I was assured that I will have a lake view apartment but all I can see now is concrete buildings," said a resident of the Lanco Hills Society who prefers not to be identified. "Every year during the monsoon, the lakes get a new life but because of continuous construction activities, it starts choking by the year end. This stagnant dirty water is also the breeding ground of mosquitoes,"  he added "This lake used to be a favourite fishing spot for me and my friends but now there is so much garbage that it has become impossible to fish near the shore," said Mr Satish, who used to come here for ...
