Hyderabad: 50 per cent of water can be reused 22.6.2019
Hyderabad: Around 50 per cent of water which can be reused after treatment is being wasted daily basis, said water management experts. The GHMC sanctioned Rs 4,933 crore for construction of sewage treatment plants, storm water drains and sewage lines in January 2019, but millions of litres of untreated sewage is dumped in water bodies every day. Experts attribute the water crisis to the use of old toilet models, inefficient faucets, showerheads, outdoor water waste and traditional kitchen techniques. A cheap rupees 70 aerator can cut down water wastage by several litres. "When it comes to water, it is relatively cheaper than other daily necessities like electricity and people don"t think about saving it. People buy star rated electronic devices but not good quality plumbing equipment which leads to severe wastage of water," said Mr Srinivas V. of the Indian Plumbing Association. A report issued by Niti Aayog last year said that India was facing the worst water crisis in history. The ...

Our lakes are dying, city sinking with them 20.6.2019
India is running out of water. This is no longer about dire environmental predictions about the cities dying in a decade. The crisis is now. Bengaluru's situation is worsening rapidly, our main source of water, lakes, are dying. There is talk of rejuvenation but as the Water Quality Index has shown repeatedly, these efforts have not resulted in real changes on ground - even glowing examples like Madiwala Lake continue to fall under Class D. Experts say that work has been superficial, while the real problem, have been ignored, including the main pollutant - sewage. Parastatal agencies are apathetic while the KSPCB is either toothless or complicit, say experts. Aksheev Thakur reports. Much noise is made around the rejuvenation of lakes and crores are supposedly being spent on these efforts. It makes the pitiable state of our city"s lakes and tanks somewhat baffling for it is evident, even to the layman that the situation is dire. The Water Quality Index"s data for April, released by the ...

Top 20 ranking: Do you have it in you BBMP? 13.6.2019
While Bengaluru struggles to find a place even among the top 200 cities in terms of cleanliness in the Swachh Survekshan survey , the city's corporators have few suggestions to improve its ranking, other than making cosmetic changes like improving its image in the eyes of the public. When will they get down to dealing with the real issues such as poor garbage disposal and inadequate sewage treatment that are at the root of the problem? Aknisree Karthik and Aksheev Thakur report You could blame it on its rising population and increasing traffic on its roads, or even on the construction of the Namma Metro, but there is little doubt that Bengaluru is not the clean city it once was. With its garbage bins disappearing and the door-to-door collection of rubbish hardly efficient, its streets are littered with rubbish, making them an eyesore. And as untreated sewage is let into its lakes , many are dying or reporting mass fish kills. Not surprisingly, the city has performed very poorly in the Swacha ...

Why don't parks usetreated water, bbmp? 25.4.2019
Rainwater harvesting plants for individual homes, mandatory STPs and compost plants in apartment complexes - BBMP excels at telling people what to do. Rarely does it follow its own advice, though. The city"s parks are drying up, a normal occurence this time of year but BBMP has done little to find a permanent solution. Instead of following its own rules and setting up rainwater harvesting or sewage treatment plants, BBMP buys water from private tankers to water its parks! And it"s a drain on taxpayer money. Has BBMP actually managed to find a solution that is worse than the problem, asks Aknisree Karthik Fortunately for Bengaluru, it has not entirely lost its Garden City reputation thanks to the many parks that still dot it. Besides the famous Cubbon Park and Lalbagh that provide huge lung spaces in a city that is fast turning into a concrete jungle, most localities have their own parks, where people can enjoy their walks and breathe in some fresh air. But on the other hand, while the city is ...
