Hyderabad: A minor controversy that erupted over the quantum of water released from Nagarjunasagar Dam to the Right Branch canal of AP was resolved on Tuesday night with TS engineering officials agreeing to continue with the release of water which they had stopped abruptly in the morning. As per the Krishna River Management Board decision, 17 tmc ft of water was to be released to Right Branch canal by the NS Dam officials from the dam that is under their control. On Tuesday morning, officials stopped water release, stating they have fulfilled the board direction. However, AP engineering officials from Right Branch canal reached the dam and insisted on further release, stating they did not get the quantum ordered by the KRMB.

Crocodiles at Manjira sanctuary face summer woe 28.2.2017
Hyderabad: Lack of proper care and attention by forest departments pose a threat to crocodile habitat in Manjeera sanctuary. Crocodiles frequently seen moving into the fields in villages on the banks of the river near Zaheerabad, Nyalkal, and in Hothi-K and Raikode mandals during summer. Forest officials catch at least half-a-dozen crocodiles from these mandals every year. In November and December 2015, as many as 14 crocodiles were caught while in 2016, around 7 crocodiles were caught. Human settlements going up near water sources, increased use of water, fishing nets and nest destruction degrade their habitat. Sand mining, river linking, projects on the river-fronts, dams and barrages result from settlements. Industries dumping waste in rivers adversely effect the ecology threatening the wildlife. A senior official from the forest department, on condition of anonymity, said, “We make sure that there is no disturbance to the habitat and human activities are kept to the minimum in order to protect the ...

Kochi: Water tankers leave canals dry 28.2.2017
KOCHI: Some 500 tankers are supplying water in the city and on its outskirts, facing an acute shortage, syphoning off water from major irrigation projects in the district and neighbouring areas. A source at the Muvattupuzha Valley Irrigation Project (MVIP) told DC that tankers are taking water without any authorization from irrigation projects. Apart from MVIP, the other major sources of illegal supply are Periyar Valley Irrigation and Chalakudy River Diversion Scheme (CRDS). “The Periyar Valley Irrigation Project is the main target for water theft,” said the source. The irrigation department has no system of scientific monitoring of the water resources under control. According to Sunny George, director of Water Institute, School of Communication and Management Studies (SCMS), it is time for the irrigation department to implement a scientific management system of its water resources. The pilferage of water resources will add to the overall shortage experienced due to the unprecedented drought situation. ...
