Rivers gasp for lifeline 24.9.2017
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala lags behind in the protection of its 44 rivers all of which originate from the Western Ghats. The rivers, backwaters, streams, canals and other inland water bodies, which are monsoon-fed, shrink into rivulets or dry up during summer due to sand mining and development activities. As the World River Day is observed on the last Sunday of September, experts say that there is no co-ordination among various departments for the protection of our rivers. As per the statistics provided by the Indian meteorological department, the annual rainfall of Kerala is more than double the national average. It receives about 3107 mm as against the national average of 1197 mm. Kerala has a rich biodiversity and the tropical rainforests are spread across 13 agro-ecological zones based on topography, rainfall distribution, soil and altitude. Nonagenarian Sunderlal Bahuguna, noted Garhwali environmentalist and Chipko movement leader, had said, "it is because of forests alone the rivers are ...

Alif was heartbroken that the river was fast disappearing and evolving into a forest with huge craters in some areas due to illegal sand mining. Though Alif and his friends had planned a documentary, it evolved into a feature film where he himself donned the main role.

When local people supported me and my friends on this project, it was made with a shoestring budget of Rs 1 lakh," Alif told DC. The film was shown at film exhibitions near Nila river and in places like Doha and Dubai making the viewers nostalgic. Alif wants to reclaim the lost culture of the locals. He was happy ...

Four pharma units get closure notice 24.9.2017

Hyderabad: The Central Pollution Control Board has sent closure orders to four pharmaceutical units in Patancheru which failed to link up with the board’s online pollution monitoring system.

The four units — Roopa Industries, Inventaa Chemicals, Srihita Chemicals and SS Organics — are listed as highly polluting industries. The PCB had served notices on them for not joining the system.

“They have equipment but they haven’t linked up with the CPCB’s cloud, making continuous monitoring difficult,” said Mr Bhadra Girish, environment engineer with the Pollution Control Board.

The system involves the installation of CCTV cameras at the spot where the treated waste water is let out. Flow meters are to be installed to measure the outflow of treated waste water and the data is stored with the CPCB. If it does not receive any data, an alert is sent to the State PCB to investigate.
