No rainwater harvesting in Thiruvananthapuram corporation building 22.4.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: The corporation office building to this day does not have rainwater harvesting system, nor percolation pits. Old timers here say there has never been a proposal to set up a reservoir. It is an omission, the authorities agree. The good news is that the corporation is considering setting up a rainwater harvesting system. When asked why the office does not have a system, Deputy Mayor Rakhi Ravikumar said that the idea never came up for discussion, but should be explored. "The office building normally has enough water supply, probably because of which we never thought of a rainwater harvesting system. We always take pride in this being a solar-powered building. There can be a rainwater harvesting system as well," she said. Mayor V.K. Prasanth was not available for comment. This year, the budget has set aside a small amount for pond restoration. The previous council had conceived a plan to restore ponds in all wards, making use of Rs 110 crores from JNNURM, according to former Mayor K ...

Chennai: No recycling units? High-rises will not get water conection 22.4.2017
Chennai: In a bid to reduce the city’s growing water requirement and save 15 per cent of drinking water supplied to Chennaiites, the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB) took a major decision on Friday, under which the government body will not provide new water and sewerage connections to buildings without recycling units. “The rule will be applicable to special and multi-storied buildings which do not have the facility to separate black water (toilet waste water) from gray water (other waste water generated from bathing, cooking and washing). Despite mandating the rule in 2002, many buildings are not complying with the rule, hence the decision,” the Chennai metro water spokesperson said. “People and building owners need not panic as the new restriction will not apply to ordinary buildings. The CMWSSB also requests all existing special and multi-storied buildings which received building permission after 2002 to instal appropriate water recycling mechanism by December 2017,” the ...

Hopes are high for a normal monsoon 21.4.2017
After months of speculation about the possibility of a deficient monsoon due to the El Nino effect, the India Meteorological Department’s prediction that the country will have a normal monsoon this year brings a sigh of relief. The El Nino effect is basically about waters in the western Pacific warming up, causing climate changes worldwide. Fingers will be crossed, hoping for the best. India, which has made major advances in space and technology, still lags far behind in simple irrigation facilities or building canals and percolation tanks on a large scale during a good monsoon year. Even rainwater harvesting is not taken seriously, though its advantages are huge. Rainwater is instead allowed to flow into gutters. It’s the same with tapping valuable resources offered by the sun and the winds that India is blessed with. Solar panels, that are getting cheaper, are still seen as a novelty and an experiment, though some governments have set an example by installing them in their state headquarters. A few ...

Cuddalore launches massive water conservation programme 17.4.2017
Cuddalore: In an attempt to tide over the water crisis, Cuddalore district administration launched a massive water conservation programme. Considering the drought like situation prevailing in Cuddalore now, the district administration initiated the water conservation programme with the primary objective of rain water harvesting, ground water conservation, balanced use of ground water, and recycling of industrial effluents and domestic waste water. The average annual rainfall of Cuddalore district is 1,290 mm. Of this, about 70 per cent rain falls during the North East Monsoon period, that too within a span of 15 to 21 days. This year the North East monsoon passed with hardly any rain and because of Cuddalore ‘s reliance on monsoon rain for  its water requirements, the district faces acute drinking water shortage and agriculture has been severely affected  causing large scale unemployment. The farmers of the district have been doubly disappointed with Cauvery water flow too. Considering the situation, the ...
