River pollution poses threat to Amaravati 19.8.2017
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. Many locals earlier staged protest in these regions, ...

Hyderabad: Patancheru victims yet to get compensation 18.8.2017
Hyderabad: Though the victims of industrial pollution in Patancheru have been demanding compensation since 30 years, it has not materialised due to the lackadaisical attitude of the concerned officials.  The Supreme Court and the High Court had found that the 36 km river bed of Nakkawagu is polluted with chromium and arsenic, and had ordered a free and continuous water supply to all the affected villages.  The courts also ordered compensation to all the people whose land lay up to 500 metres of the riverbed. The residents alleged that they are yet to get the compensation as corrupt officials are changing the records.  On  July 31, the collector of Sangareddy district had submitted a report to the Pollution Control Board (PCB), and stated that water supply to six villages Kajipally, Inole, Byanthole, Artula and Chidruppa is being carried out via tankers and lorries.   "In the last 35 years, the number of industrial units have increased from 60 to over 400, and is spread ...

Fishermen worried as sea turns green near Karwar 17.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The sea water at the Rabindranath Tagore beach here has turned green much to the chagrin of the fishermen and local residents. The fisherfolk, startled by the colour of the waves hitting the shore, called up the office of the ocean biology study centre. Jagannath N Rathod, chairman of the centre, assistant professor Shivakumar Haragi and their students came to the spot and examined the extent of the water contamination.They took the water samples with them. Jagannath said the green colour and the stench could be because of the minerals that get mixed with the water due to rainwater and sewage coming into the sea and the subsequent growth of algae. The experts said there is no danger to the sea creatures due to the contamination and fishermen need not worry. Haragi told DH that water has never turned green in the last 10 years. He said steps should be taken to prevent water contamination. He said they would conduct tests on the water samples at their lab and submit a report on the contaminants in the ...

Sewage overflow complaints pour in from city areas 14.8.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, August 13 The sewerage system in the city, it seems, has completely collapsed with complaints of sewerage overflow and choked in different areas of the city pouring in the Municipal Corporation and the sewerage board on a daily basis for the past few days. On the other hand, the Triveni company, responsible for looking after the maintenance of sewerage, has not been able to fix these complaints. Owing to non-fixing of complaints, the dirty water of the sewerage has been lying stagnant in various areas of the city. The dirty water is not only causing problems to people, but also creating pollution. It is pertinent to mention that for the past many years, the sewerage in the city was supervised by the Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board, but for the last two years it has been maintained by the private company, Triveni. Since the day the company has taken maintenance of the sewerage in its hands, the sewerage system has been crumbling in the city. All councillors are seeing ...
