50 diarrhoea cases reported in D’sala village 11.7.2018 The Tribune
Dharamsala, July 10 As many as 50 cases of diarrhoea have been reported from Sarah village here. Chief Medical Officer, Kangra, RS Rana said villagers with complaints of vomiting started coming to the Zonal Hospital here on Monday evening. He said while 10 patients were admitted, the others were sent home after medication. He added that the situation was under control. A team of the Health Department has been sent to the village to look for reasons behind the outbreak, which is likely due to the contamination of drinking water.

PPCB issues notice to service stations over water misuse 10.7.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, July 9 To save water going down the drain, the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) has asked for suggestions and objections while issuing a 21-day notice to stakeholders of service stations that use plunger pumps to wash vehicles. The PPCB wants that these stations should cut down water consumption by half and install effluent treatment plants to reuse water. A recent study by the PPCB had revealed that such service stations waste 150-200 litres of freshwater per vehicle and many of them have no facility to treat or reuse water. The PPCB on Monday issued a notice under Section 33-A of the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, asking for public opinion and objections in this regard so as to make pressure pumps with hand clutch must for each service station. The aim is to bring water consumption at these service stations down to 50 litres per vehicle and ensure that this water is treated before being released into drains. Kahan Singh Pannu, PPCB Chairman, said ...
