River Ganga gets a new breath of life in Kanpur as level of dissolved oxygen improves 24.6.2019
Kanpur: Located on the west bank of river Ganga, Kanpur is a densely populated city famous for its leather industries. The city produces an estimated 450 million litres of municipal sewage and industrial effluent daily, a majority of which was flowing directly into the holy river until recently. However, with the launch of the Namami Gange Programme that aims to clean and rejuvenate Ganga, 13 out of 16 major drains in Kanpur have been completely tapped and the sewage and industrial effluent has been diverted to Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs). In November 2018, a century-old Sisamau drain, which produces over 140 million litres per day (MLD) of sewage, was completely stopped from discharging sewage into the Ganga. This was the biggest drain-tapping initiative undertaken at a cost of over Rs 60 crore. The sewage has been diverted via pipelines to two sewage treatments plants (STPs) on the outskirts of the city - 80 million litres a day to Bhingawan STP and 60 MLD to Jajmau STP. The tapping of ...

Bengaluru: Kasturinagar Main Road, which is a major link between Byappanahalli and Banaswadi has been dug up for almost a year. This prolonged disruption not just affected the motorists, but even businesses in the area have been badly hit. Punith Kumar, an hotelier, said, "My kitchen was serving hundreds of people every day.
