Rains bring Hyderabad to a standstill 20.9.2019
Hyderabad: The city was hit by another spell of copious rains, which disrupted normal flow of life, and brought traffic to a standstill. Water was found flooding different parts of the city, low-lying areas and stagnated on the roads. The rains have left behind water puddles all over. At the ends and sides of roads, below and at the mouths of flyovers, standing water reduced the city to a partially flooded metro in despair. One of the major reasons for stagnation of water in different places was the slopes and gradients in road levels, and engineering flaws, which were not allowing for a natural or smooth flow of water into the drains at Begumpet, Necklace Road and the metro rail corridors. This was seen leading to an overflowing of drains in some parts of the city and caused very slow movement of traffic in the city. A woman walks through water in Malakpet.

2 Kakkayam shutters to be raised 19.9.2019

KOZHIKODE: Kozhikode Collector Seeram Sambasiva Rao has urged residents of both banks of Kuttiyadi River to be on alert as two shutters of the Kakkayam Dam are all set to be lifted by one 'feet' each on Thursday.

The catchment area of the dam was getting copious rains in the last two days, necessitating the release of water to keep it within safety limits, a press release said.

Meanwhile, the Banasura Sagar Dam executive engineer has warned families living on the two banks of River Kadamanthodu at the lower reaches of the dam against flooding as one shutter of the dam was lifted on Wednesday afternoon to bring down water to 775 metres from the current level of 775.05 metres.

The water level of the river will be up by 10 to 15 cm with an intense flow. Any attempt to step into the water may invite mishap, the executive engineer said.

Rains spew all Hyderabad's garbage back 19.9.2019
Hyderabad: Heavy rains on Tuesday night have led to silt from the sewage drains to overflow on the roads in the Sainkpuri, Kapra, Yapral, Old Alwal, Malkagiri residential colonies as the drains were filled with plastic, glass bottles, paper, tea cups, condoms, sanitary pads, diapers and other waste dumped in them. The drains are clogged as they are open at many places and these in turn lead to them getting converted into open garbage points. A senior officer in Malkajgiri circle explained, "This is a regular problem as even if we clean them in the morning, by evening they are full again. The problem is that people are throwing stuff from moving cars at night, dumping near garbage bins which are then being strewn around by dogs and also there are apartments which are connecting to the main sewage line instead of having their own septic tank." Since the time the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation stopped the cleaning of septic tanks, apartments and individual homes have connected their ...

Ward committee meetings crucial for move to succeed 18.9.2019
Wednesday Quiz: What do New Zealand, Ireland, Denmark Finland, Oman, Croatia, and Kuwait have in common? The answer: They are all countries with less than half the population of Namma Bengaluru! If Bengaluru had been a country, it would rank 75th of 233 most populous nations in the world! Local governance evolved over the decades as urbanisation brought more and more people to big cities looking for livelihood. The global local governance reform was based on principles of subsidiarity and decentralized administration which lead to transparency and better political accountability. In India and especially in Bengaluru, we went in the opposite direction. In 2010, the BMP became the BBMP, many towns and villages have been merged into the City Corporation and nine years later, we can see, it hasn"t helped much. There are many localities in and around Sarjapur Road, the IT hotbed with mega software companies, huge apartment complexes and sprawling villa communities – with no piped water supply, no ...

Hyderabad: Hotel creates sewage mess in Attapur 18.9.2019
Hyderabad: It seems that wherever hotels are built, sanitary sewer systems overflow due to dumping of food waste into drainage lines. At Attapur crossroads, a manhole has been overflowing for two days now, but the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water and Sewerage Board has not turned up to clean it. The flowing sewage water has reached over a kilometre and continues apace. Star Pride Hotel near Pillar No. 144 of PVNR Expressway at Attapur is the culprit. At the corner of the hotel is a manhole.  Local traders complained that overflowing drainage is a regular feature due to the dumping of food waste into sewer lines by the hotel which leads to unpleasant smells. One of them said, "it affects out business and we have been facing a lot of inconvenience. It is difficult for commuters to pass across the overflowing drainage water." A trader said, "We cannot raise objection against it as it would hamper their relationship with the owners of the ...
