Chennai: At a time when the Centre is talking about Smart City and digital solutions, about 4,000 families have been denied of drainage facility within Chennai city limits for the past four years. "Close to 1,000 flats and individual houses in Nolambur and Mogappair (Ward 91, Ambattur) are spending heavily for drainage. Six years ago, work relating to pumping stations was started in the locality, but the project was abandoned due to poor engineering", said Swaminathan Subramaniam, secretary, Jamba United Welfare Association. "We are forced to run from pillar to post by the callous metro water authorities and there is no proper response about our applications seeking drainage connection", said H.

According to municipal administration department sources, the contractors are now avoiding city ...

5,000 fish found dead in Mahbubsagar 17.10.2017
Hyderabad: About 5,000 fish, belonging to the exotic Tilapia species that lives in the deeper parts of the fresh water bodies, were found dead at the Mahbubsagar in Sangareddy district over the weekend. The 100-acre lake is located in the centre of Sangareddy, about 50 km from Hyderabad, and the fish kill raised concerns of toxic pollution. Officials of the Pollution Control Board who rushed to the spot said after preliminary checks, that the lake was polluted with domestic sewage, and that it was not a case of industrial pollution. "We have collected samples to look into what caused this mass kill," said Mr Bhadra Girish, PCB environmental engineer. The lake was built in the 19th century on the lines of the Hussainsagar. Manjeera reservoir lies 11 km from Mahbubsagar. "The fish contracted a bacterial infection due to sudden inflow of sewage and drainage. It came on top from its usual bottom rung for oxygen, but could not survive," said Ms Sujatha, assistant director of fisheries ...
