Telangana government puts riders to river link 18.1.2018
Hyderabad: The Telangana state government on Wednesday laid down a few conditions, including leaving out 1,600 tmc ft for the state, before assenting to the Godavari-Cauvery river link project proposed by the Centre. The river link is meant to divert part of the 3,000 tmc ft Godavari surplus water to deficit river basins of the Krishna, Pennar and the Cauvery. Irrigation minister T. Harish Rao placed the objections at the state irrigation ministers conference convened by Union water resources minister Nitin Gadkari in Delhi to discuss the project. Reacting to the Centre"s proposal placing the linking of the Mahanadi and the Godavari in Phase-2, Mr Harish Rao suggested it would be proper to take it up in Phase-1 as proposed earlier. Phase 1 currently is meant to link the Godavari, Krishna, Pennar and Cauvery rivers. Mr Harish Rao said lifting the water from one place to another should be done with minimal submergence and impact on environment. He said if 3,000 tmc ft of water was surplus as ...

Telangana, Andhra Pradesh may not oppose Godavari-Cauvery link scheme 17.1.2018
Hyderabad: Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states are not going to oppose the Central government's recent proposal of the Godavari-Cauvery river link scheme. However, they would like to put some conditions on its implementation.  Union water resources minister Nitin Gadkari has convened a meeting of irrigation ministers of states in Delhi on Wednesday. It will be attended by irrigation ministers T. Harish Rao (Telangana) and Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao (Andhra Pradesh) along with officials of the respective irrigation departments. Hitherto both states have been against interlinking of rivers in the southern region on the plea that there will be hardly any surplus water in the Godavari once all the existing and proposed irrigation projects on the Godavari are completed.  This was the stand taken by both the states when Uma Bharati was the Union minister. However, Mr Gadkari has convinced both governments that the Centre will not harm their interests or their rights over the Godavari and Krishna ...

Groundwater high in arsenic, no steps to protect food chain 17.1.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, January 16 Arsenic content in groundwater in the state has reached alarming proportions, but the government is yet to take steps to ensure that it does not get into the food chain. While the Agriculture Department is yet to establish the impact of arsenic-rich water on farm products, the Water Supply and Sanitation Department is using modern technology to ensure safe water supply to residents. A recent sampling of groundwater by the Department of Water Supply and Sanitation has found alarmingly high arsenic content in samples taken from Amritsar, Tarn Taran and Gurdaspur. While other districts also fair poorly, these three districts top the list. As per records, Punjab has the highest per hectare usage of pesticides in the country. “Excessive tapping of groundwater through shallow tubewells for irrigation, particularly for rabi/summer crops, is a major cause for arsenic contamination in crop produce. It may adversely impact human, animal and environmental health,” read a ...
