Sex offenders living on secluded island say water causing illness, unexplained deaths 25.9.2017
Scores of sex offenders ordered to live on a secluded island in Washington state say the often cloudy, brown water there is making them sick, and records show the water system has been plagued by problems for more than a decade. About 200 residents of the Special Commitment Center have filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the facility is violating their rights by forcing them to drink contaminated water that causes stomach pain and skin rashes and has been blamed for unexplained deaths. The executive who oversees the centre says the water turns brown periodically when the pipes are flushed, and he insists the cloudiness is only an esthetic effect that causes no harm. But an Associated Press review of state Department of Health records shows that the water has repeatedly exceeded standards for various chlorine-related chemicals and has been cited for violations dating back to 2006. Health reports say the facility"s water treatment plant has been "on the verge of failure" since 2013, and ...

Dharmendra Jore: Will revised tariff ensure pilferage-free water supply? 18.9.2017 mid-day.com
Judicious use of piped water has always been the last thing on our minds. We realise the importance of the essential commodity only when faced with breakdowns like pipe burst, or imposed cuts in view of the sinking level in the reservoirs. This is the story of people who get seamless tap water supply because they do not really get inflated water bills, unlike spiralling prices of petroleum products. Things are expected to change soon. Time will tell its effectiveness, depending on how new measures taken by the state Water Resources Department and the State Water Regulatory Authority are implemented. Use more, pay more You will have to conserve or pay through the roof for excessive water use. The state Water Resources Department has moved a proposal to charge 16% to 20% more for water it supplies to cities. The extra cost will ultimately be passed on to the end consumers. In addition to this, the regulator has decided to increase per person supply, but with a rider that the users will have to pay ...

100% sewerage still far from reality, say experts 16.9.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, September 13 The 100 per cent sewerage and water supply in the city is far from reality as just three months have left for the deadline of the project to come to end. The company, Triveni, which has been assigned the project, has done only 27 per cent work so far in the city. Experts feel that the major reason behind the failure of this project is that Triveni company, which has been given this work, had not done any sewerage work before and this company is expert in making water treatment plants. As even around Rs 40 crore payment has also been made by the Muncipal Corporation Bathinda (MCB) to the Triveni Company so far, but work of this amount is not seen anywhere in the city even where is sewerage laid by the company there are complainants regarding no connections have been done yet or there is problem in the leveling of the sewerage. Sensing this project failing, even SAD-BJP councilors which earlier had passed this project in the general house meeting with much ...
