Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: Congress, BJP plays blame game, North Karnataka parched 26.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The dispute over Mahadayi river which has been on the boil since the 80s, has reached a flash point in the parched North Karnataka region in the run-up to the state Assembly elections. The farmers here want Karnataka to build a series of dams, canals and barrages to route Mahadayi river water to the Malaprabha basin and the namesake dam off Saundatti in Belgaum district to meet the drinking and irrigation requirements of the water-scarce Bagalkot, Gadag, Dharwad and Belgaum districts. Over 500 farmers from the region including several women and children are leaving on Wednesday night for Delhi under the umbrella organisation Karnataka Rayat Sena (KRS). They have been given an appointment to meet President Ram Nath Kovind on April 29 where they will submit a memorandum, KRS chairperson Veeresh Sobradamat told DNA. "In the memorandum, we have asked the Centre to intervene and give us water as the region has seen several farmer suicides because of lack of water. If the Centre can't do that, they should ...

Yamuna water dispute: SC asks Delhi, Haryana,Centre to hold meeting 23.4.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today directed the chief secretaries of Delhi and Haryana and the secretary of the Ministry of Water Resources to hold a meeting immediately to discuss and sort out the issues relating to the supply of Yamuna river water to the national capital. The apex court said this after chief secretaries of Delhi and Haryana, who were both present in the court during the hearing, raised some issues regarding the minutes of the meeting held earlier between them. While Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash told a bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta that they had not agreed on certain aspects at the last meeting, the chief secretary of Haryana said the minutes of the last meeting were "correctly recorded". "What should be done now? Do we need to have CCTV cameras installed to see what they have said (in the meeting)? All of them are senior officers," the bench observed. However, Additional Solicitor General A N S Nadkarni, appearing for the Centre, said that ...

Draining out Chambal 22.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
For thousands of years, Chambal river has been the lifeline of eastern Rajasthan. The river has even found mention in the great poem Mahabharata where it is addressed as Charmanvati. However, now it appears that after centuries of providing sustainance to humans, the river appears to be going down the same way as the once mighty Sarawati river. The reason: over-exploitation of the river in various ways by humans. LIFELINE FOR MANY It would not be wrong to say that currently Chambal is the lifeline of Rajasthan as its water is used across the state on a daily basis. Chambal provides drinking and irrigation water to Bundi and Kota while over 15 hundred villages in Bharatpur district also get the benefit of its water.  Moreover, even the capital city – Jaipur – gets water from Chambal as at times the river’s water has been lifted to fill Bisalpur dam. There are demands by farmers and locals alike from Bhilwara and Ajmer districts for a greater share of water which eventually would be brought from Chambal. ...

Bisalpur dam level a cause for concern 21.4.2018 DNA: India
Drinking water supply in Jaipur hinges on Bisalpur dam completely. This has been the situation after Ramgarh dam dried up, prompting the government to initiate water connection from the former. But the alarming fact is that besides Bisalpur dam, there is no other source of drinking water for the city. And in the event of the Bisalpur dam drying up, the city would be left high and dry, literally. During monsoon last year, the Bisalpur dam was not completely filled up and currently, the water level in the dam is low. With the current level of water, the city’s water needs can last till October 2018. However, if the monsoon remains weak this year, the ripple effect (of water shortage) will take place in summer next year. Despite the high court order, the government could not make the Ramgarh dam operational even though 70% of the capital is in the Dark Zone. All the dams lying around the city of Jaipur are dry and the ground level of the city is rapidly falling. Bisalpur dam located in Tonk district is the ...

35 per cent water in Maha reservoirs, stock to last till July 20.4.2018 General News
Maharashtra's reservoirs currently have 35 per cent water in them and the stock can last till July 15 this year, state Irrigation Minister Girish Mahajan today said. Speaking to PTI, he added that the state had received 82 per cent of the average rainfall in 2016 while it received 75 per cent, of this average, in 2017. "Despite less rainfall in 2017, the state has 35.76 per cent water in its reservoirs and this is enough to sustain till July 15. This storage was 29.30 per cent during the same period in 2017," he informed. Mahajan attributed the healthier water levels this year to the state government's water conservation schemes. "The Jalyukt Shivar programme and the storage of water in "KT Weirs" (Kolhapuri type bridge-cum-barrage dams) have yielded good results. Out of the 1,200 KT weirs, we could store water in 950," he said. Jalyukt Shivar is a state government project that involves deepening and widening of streams and nullahs, construction of cement and earthen ...

India stares at water crisis, urgent steps needed: experts 19.4.2018 General News
As the proverbial Indian summer sets in and taps dry up across large swathes of the country, India faces an acute shortage of safe and sustainable water, specifically groundwater, a crisis that will exacerbate with factors like indiscriminate use and climate change, warn experts. The issue of water sustainability for the years to come centres around critical water sources such as reservoirs and groundwater. Last week, the World Resources Institute (WRI), basing its findings on a new early warning satellite system, warned that shrinking reservoirs in India could result in water taps going completely dry in the country. Experts also point to research establishing the criticality of groundwater for India's agriculture dependent people. "Almost 70-80 per cent of the population of South Asia (including India) is dependent on groundwater for drinking and agricultural irrigation," said leading IIT Kharagpur hydrogeologist Abhijit Mukherjee. The northern and eastern parts lose groundwater at
