Stop Karnataka on Pennar project, say farmers 14.3.2017
Krishnagiri: After Cauvery, Tamil Nadu farmers may have to fight for their rights to share the highly polluted South Pennar river waters, if a UK-assisted one billion pound project by Karnataka to revitalise its lakes and reuse their water for industries, is implemented. The South Pennar River originates at Nandi hills in neighboring Karnataka and reaches Varathur Lake before entering Hosur in Tamil Nadu. This river is almost dry round the year but continuously receives the highly polluted sewerage water discharged into lakes in Karnataka. Here, the water is first stored in the Kelavarapalli dam and then the surplus discharge from the Kelavarapalli is transported to the KRP dam in Krishnagiri and other district reservoirs in Dharmapuri, Thiruvanamalai, Villupuram and finally empties into sea at Cuddalore. The upper riparian state has planned to revitalize the highly polluted lakes that store South Pennar river water before being allowed to flow into the lower riparian state. Karnataka has also planned to ...

Sand bund will stop brackish water intrusion in Chalakkudy river 14.3.2017
KOCHI: When construction of the temporary sand bund across Chalakudy River at Kanakkankadavu in Puthanvelikara panchayat is completed by the month-end, the severe drinking water scarcity in many panchayats in the northern parts of the district will be resolved to a great extent. District collector Muhammad Y. Safirulla has instructed that bund construction be completed by March 18 which will resolve the brackish water intrusion to the upper stream of Chalakudy River. Mr. Safirulla visited Kozhithuruth, the area near Kanakkankadavu  to review the progress of work and instructed that the works be finished immediately. The irrigation department is constructing the bund at an estimated cost of Rs 20 lakhs. Sand dredged out from the river bed is being used for the construction. Puthanvelikara drinking water project which caters to the panchayat and nearby areas has been defunct for the last few months as brackish water has entered the river from the backwaters. Similar is the situation of other small scale ...

For Water 12.3.2017
The relentless Hyderabad sun, and the city’s sheer number of humans, seem to be slowing down Sonam Wangchuk. Everywhere he looks, there’s either a reporter trying to fire off a question or an autograph hunter pushing his way through. Often, they are the same person. The crowd around Wangchuk stands mesmerised. Mostly comprising teachers and staff of a rather large city school — that has invited him over for a speech — the cordon of humanity around him are keen on discussing radical ideas, innovation…  the next big thing. ‘Should I ask him if he is an idiot?’, a reporter is heard running his question with a colleague. The other man turns around with the sort of face one makes after a whiff of armpit. The query is immediately struck off. Sonam Wangchuk is not an idiot. In fact, he is one of the smartest people alive at the moment. And that ‘idiot’ reference is thanks to Aamir Khan, who based one of his characters from a movie on this unassuming engineer from Ladakh. “It’s really not based on my life… it’s ...
