Fighting the green battle 25.6.2017 The Shillong Times
By Nabamita Mitra Shillong is losing her green cover and the pace has increased. Planting saplings and cleaning neighbourhoods are not celebratory rituals for a hyped government scheme or of a particular occasion but are among habits of a Good Samaritan. For those who are oblivious to the environmental causes, there should be laws as […]

Alert against leptospirosis in Alappuzha 25.6.2017
ALAPPUZHA: At a time when the recurring fever situation continues to take a toll in the state, water-logged areas in the district are under rat fever threat. The bacterial disease is transmitted mostly through rodent, and most of the cases come from canal de-silting or paddy workers. The district administration has now issued an alert against leptospirosis. "Incidence of waterborne diseases especially leptospirosis has, of late, been noticed throughout the year in places like water logged Kuttanad," said Dr R.V. Ramlal, the superintendent of Government (TD) Medical College. Many are treated at the MCH, though taluk hospitals have improved facilities. Of the total patients admitted with waterborne diseases, more than 70 percent were from Champakulam, Nedumudy, Monkombu, Kainakary, and  Pallathuruthy.

Pig farming upsets villagers 19.6.2017 The Tribune
Avneet Kaur Jalandhar, June 18 Residents of Birring village, situated near Jalandhar Cantt, are upset following the coming up of a pig farm in an open field that falls in the village, with Delhi Public School (DPS) also lying closeby. Near the farm Railway Colony is also located and adjoining roads lead to Dakhoa, Tanuwali and other villages. The area is listed under ward No. 12 of the Municipal Corporation (MC). Despite several pleas made by people of the village to the ward councillor in this regard, no action has been taken yet. “Pig faeces and waste often spreads in neighborhood, polluting air and water with toxic waste particles. Waste from these farms have the potential to carry pathogens and bacteria, often antibiotic resistant, that can be dangerous when ingested,” said a resident of Birring village. Another resident of the village said, “Pig waste usually contributes to groundwater pollution. The waste products result in irritation, respiratory ailments, increased stress, decreased quality of ...

Hyderabad: Isnapur lake decays as factories pour toxic waste 19.6.2017
Hyderabad: The Isnapur lake continues to be a cesspool of chemical pollutants despite the TS Pollution Control Board (TSPCB) banning seven companies from releasing their toxic waste into the lake. Though the pharma and chemical companies had stopped the release of effluents into the lake four months ago following the ban, the contaminated lake water has neither been drained out nor treated. TSPCB had temporarily shut down three erring companies — Chaitanya  Chloride, Venkar Chem-icals and Micro Molecules — and directed four others to regulate their operations. The seven companies now dispose of their chemical waste through the common effluents treatment plant at Patancheru. The companies continue to be monitored by the TSPCB. While these companies paid up a total sum of Rs 6.3 lakh to the government, little has been done to revive the contaminated lake. Isnapur has over 10,000 residents and relies on the Manjeera reservoir for drinking water. But when there is a shortage, they find it hard to manage as ...
