Godavari water eyed to solve crisis in Hyderabad 16.8.2019
Hyderabad: In this season of plenty, 1.5 lakh residents of Gopanpally, Puppalguda, the Financial District and other areas are still suffering from an acute water crisis. Though reservoirs on the Godavari and the Krishna rivers are brimming, a large section of the city is facing a water shortage because the Manjira river basin is dry. Against its capacity of 30 tmc ft (thousand million cubic feet), the Singur reservoir currently has a mere 0.46 tmc ft of water. The deficit rainfall in catchments areas like Latur and Bidar is said to be the reason for parts of the city having water scarcity. Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) officials say the board will compensate  for the scarce water in the Manjira with water from the Godavari, which is to be supplied through the ring main, but the work on the ring main is incomplete.

Water pollution affecting the movement of silver carp fish 14.8.2019
Washington: A new study suggests that Chicago's water pollution may be a contributing factor for the lack of upstream movement in silver carp fish. "It's a really toxic soup coming down from the Chicago Area Waterway, but a lot of those chemicals go away near Kankakee. They might degrade or settle out, or the Kankakee River might dilute them. We don't really know what happens, but there's a stark change in water quality at that point. That's right where the invading front stops. And this fish never stops for anything," said Cory Suski, associate professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences and co-author of the study published in the journal of Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part D: Genomics and Proteomics. The researchers think the fish stall out at Kankakee because they are responding negatively to compounds in the water flowing downstream from Chicago. They formulated their hypothesis after reading a 2017 water quality report from ...
