Untreated sewage takes toll on river waters 19.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, April 18 The state has failed miserably to protect and maintain the quality of its river waters with untreated sewage finding its way into the water bodies. Ludhiana continues to be the major defaulter. The paucity of funds is a major impediment in setting up sewage treatment plants (STPs) and their effective working. As a result, most civic bodies continue to discharge untreated waste directly into the rivers. At present, 87 STPs are operational in 67 cities of the state and only 15 meet the water quality norms after treatment primarily due to limited funds to run these STPs. As per records obtained from the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), a majority of the 87 STPs are not functioning due to the shortage of funds with the Local Bodies Department, while many are unable to meet the set norms due to poor upkeep. It is further revealed that 99 cities are yet to set up an STP. The major cities that are polluting water channels include Jalandhar, Amritsar, Zirakpur, Mohali ...

High & Dry 18.4.2018 DNA: India
More than water, apartments are flowing in Jaipur. The concrete edifices are capturing the skyline in parts of the city, where water line is non existent. Regular supply of the very basic need to survive – drinking water – is still a far cry. Around 20% population which lives in these high rises have to lower down their ‘guards’ just to quench their thirst. And surprisingly no one is complaining. Residents are happy getting their ‘supply’ through non reliable exorbitant tankers, builders indifferent to providing basic facilities after ‘shedding’ their ‘inventory’ and the state government not bothered at all above fulfiling its promise to supply Bisalpur water. Non cognitive of the water quality, tankers simply ferry several rounds to these apartments, empty the ‘blue gold’ and leave residents grapple with the high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) content in water, which can damage kidney and cause bone deformities on prolonged use. The state government had announced PHED connections for apartments long back. ...
