Tribune News Service New Delhi, September 25 Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today reviewed a plan for setting up decentralised sewage treatment plants (STPs) across Delhi.

Hyderabad: CCTV data sparingly used for civic issues 26.9.2017
HYDERABAD: The CCTV project in the city is confined to ensuring law and order and free traffic flow and is not being put to regular use to offer better civic amenities. The police department has provided access to CCTV footage to other departments like GHMC, HMWSSB and Secunderabad Cantonment Board. Problems like badly damaged roads, overflowing garbage bins, leaks in drainage and water pipelines, faulty street- lights can be noticed in the CCTV footage coming from various parts of the city. However, the information is used sparingly by the civic body only during heavy rains or major events like the Ganesh immersion. The CCTV project is the "brain child" of Chief Minister K.

The police has planned to instal one lakh CCTV cameras  with community participation like involving residential colonies as well as traders and business establishments.  With positive response from colony associations and trader ...

Sex offenders living on secluded island say water causing illness, unexplained deaths 25.9.2017
Scores of sex offenders ordered to live on a secluded island in Washington state say the often cloudy, brown water there is making them sick, and records show the water system has been plagued by problems for more than a decade. About 200 residents of the Special Commitment Center have filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the facility is violating their rights by forcing them to drink contaminated water that causes stomach pain and skin rashes and has been blamed for unexplained deaths. The executive who oversees the centre says the water turns brown periodically when the pipes are flushed, and he insists the cloudiness is only an esthetic effect that causes no harm. But an Associated Press review of state Department of Health records shows that the water has repeatedly exceeded standards for various chlorine-related chemicals and has been cited for violations dating back to 2006. Health reports say the facility"s water treatment plant has been "on the verge of failure" since 2013, and ...

Scientists: Desert turtle endangered, 100 left in Arizona 25.9.2017
It may not be surprising that an "aquatic desert" turtle faces long odds in life, but environmentalists and biologists still welcomed this week's endangered species designation for the Sonoyta mud turtle. The US Fish and Wildlife Service announced the designation Wednesday, citing threats from climate change to loss of habitat for the southern Arizona animal, whose numbers are believed to have dwindled to as low as 100 turtles. "The Sonoyta mud turtle is clearly in danger of extinction," Steve Spangle, a field supervisor with Fish and Wildlife's Arizona Ecological Services, said in a release announcing the listing. "Protecting it under the Endangered Species Act will marshal increased attention and the resources needed by our US and Mexican conservation partners to improve and expand its dwindling habitat and populations," Spangle said. The turtle, a subspecies of the Sonoran mud turtle, is found in northern Mexico and in the Quitobaquito Springs in Organ Pipe Cactus ...
