Water warning still holds 17.2.2018 deccanherald.com
Water warning still holds Barely a week after an alarmist BBC report warned that Bengaluru will be the next city to run out of water, the Cauvery verdict comes as a relief. Yet, the allocation of an additional 4.75 TMCFt of water for the city does little to reverse a disturbing trend: Lack of any serious, concerted attempt to recharge the groundwater table, rejuvenate lakes and treat and reuse its waste water. Backed by well-researched studies, scientists have clearly indicated that if a well structured recharge-recycle-reuse policy is in place, Bengaluru can potentially be a water-surplus city. But half-hearted measures with little planning have left the city in an inglorious mess. To make it worse, over 40% of the Cauvery water supplied in the city is lost due to inefficient distribution and pilferage. Antiquated plumping system The BBC report had dubbed the citys plumbing system as antiquated and in need of an urgent upheaval. Citing a 2014 study, the report also observed that the city loses over half ...

City didn't depend on lakes for water after 1896: Expert 17.2.2018 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru city never actually depended on lakes for their water source after 1896, says Rainwater Harvesting Club founder S Vishwanath. Only till 1895, when the citys population was just around 30,000, did people relied on these water bodies. According to BWSSB, till 1896, unfiltered water was supplied to the city through the Kalyani system from a number of tanks such as Dharmambudhi, Sampangi, Ulsoor and Sankey. This was supplemented by local wells and stepped ponds. Vishwanath rubbishes reports that Bengaluru is about to run out of water. "Cauvery water replaced the source of water from lakes, wells and step ponds. There is now a huge potential in harvesting rainwater in the city, which could easily act as a supplementary source," he adds. The city, on an average, receives around 3,000 MLD (Million Litres Daily) of water. If at least half of this is conserved, then there can be a sustainable alternate source of water, says Vishwanath. But compliance on RWH is extremely low. "People should start doing ...

Over 9,000 consumers across the city have been penalised by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for not installing rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems though they had installed them many years ago. The boards office in A Narayananapura, east sub-division, has received at least 25 complaints from consumers who have installed RWH structures but are still being penalised. Varalakshmi Chandrababu, a resident of Doddanekundi near Marathahalli says that though they had adopted RWH 20 years ago, BWSSB has imposed a penalty of Rs 512 for this month. "When the meter reader came to my house, I showed him the structure in which we were storing rainwater and the provision for water to percolate to the ground.
