The dispute over Mahadayi river which has been on the boil since the 80s, has reached a flash point in the parched North Karnataka region in the run-up to the state Assembly elections. The farmers here want Karnataka to build a series of dams, canals and barrages to route Mahadayi river water to the Malaprabha basin and the namesake dam off Saundatti in Belgaum district to meet the drinking and irrigation requirements of the water-scarce Bagalkot, Gadag, Dharwad and Belgaum districts. Over 500 farmers from the region including several women and children are leaving on Wednesday night for Delhi under the umbrella organisation Karnataka Rayat Sena (KRS). They have been given an appointment to meet President Ram Nath Kovind on April 29 where they will submit a memorandum, KRS chairperson Veeresh Sobradamat told DNA.

East Delhi Municipal Corporation stops silt disposal at Geeta Colony site 22.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has stopped disposal of silt at a site in Geeta Colony. The silt, removed by various agencies from drains, will now be disposed at a new facility at Singhola village near Singhu border. According to the sources, disposal of silt at the facility in Geeta Colony has been discontinued due to litigation. "All agencies concerned, including the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Delhi Jal Board (DJB), Irrigation and Flood Department have been notified to send the silt from drains and otherwise to the new facility at Singhola," said a senior EDMC official. The disposal of silt in East Delhi became a problem as its dumping at Ghazipur landfill site was prevented after the collapse of a portion of the dump last year in which two persons were killed. Later, the facility was readied at Geeta Colony but the locals resorted to protest against it. A delegation of Delhi Congress leaders had recently met Lt Governor also to stop the dumping of silt at Geeta Colony. The new ...

Draining out Chambal 22.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
For thousands of years, Chambal river has been the lifeline of eastern Rajasthan. The river has even found mention in the great poem Mahabharata where it is addressed as Charmanvati. However, now it appears that after centuries of providing sustainance to humans, the river appears to be going down the same way as the once mighty Sarawati river. The reason: over-exploitation of the river in various ways by humans. LIFELINE FOR MANY It would not be wrong to say that currently Chambal is the lifeline of Rajasthan as its water is used across the state on a daily basis. Chambal provides drinking and irrigation water to Bundi and Kota while over 15 hundred villages in Bharatpur district also get the benefit of its water.  Moreover, even the capital city – Jaipur – gets water from Chambal as at times the river’s water has been lifted to fill Bisalpur dam. There are demands by farmers and locals alike from Bhilwara and Ajmer districts for a greater share of water which eventually would be brought from Chambal. ...

Sabarmati weir could meet water need for 15 days 21.4.2018 DNA: India
Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is all set to construct a weir near Indira bridge on the Sabarmati river. The weir, once completed, would be able to store up to 20,000 million litres per day (MLD) and cater to the city's water needs for 15 days, in case of a shortage. "On daily basis, the AMC gets water from different sources. Many times, breaches happen in the canals and around 200 MLD of water supply stops for a few days. To avoid such situations, we are building a new weir on the Sabarmati River," said Pravin Patel, Standing Committee Chairman, AMC. He added, "For the optimum usage of water, we are planning to construct the weir near the Indira bridge in Kotarpur. This water can be treated at the Kotarpur water works, so it would be cost effective as well. We have allotted Rs 10 crore for the same and the state government has given us permission for it." Change in design of Riverfront Phase II Pravin Patel said that the AMC is considering changes in the design of the second phase of Sabarmati ...
