Stumped by Monday nights torrential downpour that trapped thousands in flooded roads and layouts, Bengalureans are scared of a repeat disaster. Old, quickfix solutions will not save the city from another catastrophic crisis, warn urban environment architects. They have now offered an alternative agenda, a total overhaul of the citys flood management system. Moving away from what they call Business As Usual models, environment architect Mohan Rao and civic evangelist V Ravichander have suggested alternatives to tackle flooding of road networks, inundation and pollution of lakes and more.

Activists demand action to prevent Mysuru from going the B'luru way 17.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Even before Independence, Mysuru was hailed for being a planned city. It had a well-designed underground drainage system and was believed to be a 'royal city' because it was known for being well-maintained and clean. Of late however, the city is going the Bengaluru way as the officials concerned have failed to plan infrastructure according to the expansion of the city. They have also failed to maintain the existing systems in good condition. Of late, there has been discussion on the encroachment of canals that once pumped water to Kukkarahalli Lake which is situated in the heart of the city. Many lakes, which once dotted the city landscape, such as the Doddakere, Subarayana Kere, Jakkarayana Kere, etc have given way to so called development. A canal, that is also called Rajakaluve, which originates at the Vishwamanava Park, near the JSS Vidyapeetha, passes through the Doddakere Grounds and along the Ooty Road before reaching the Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram. It flows to the brim when it rains and ...
