CAG report raises a stink over city's sewage system 11.8.2017 DNA: Popular News
Despite the talk of Swacch Bharat and making India open defecation free (ODF), the sewage treatment and management system in Mumbai leaves a lot to be desired as revealed by a performance audit by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG). The report has pointed to several shortfalls in the sewage waste management systems of the BMC, including around half of the sewage being discharged into the sea or water bodies without being treated, around 400 people using one toilet seat and a deficit of toilet seats in slums. The CAG's report on local bodies for the year ended on March 31, 2016, was submitted to the state legislature on Friday. This report noted that Mumbai generated 2,146 million litres per day (MLD) of sewage, of which only 1,098 MLD is treated. The remaining 1,048 MLD (49%) sewage was outside the sewage collection system and was discharged into the sea or creeks without being treated as on July 2016. "This combined with poor treatment quality of sewage at four of the seven WWTFs (waste water ...

Asking old apartments to install STPs is a ridiculous idea, BWSSB 8.8.2017
There was a prosperous kingdom, which was crime-ridden with murders, kidnapping and burglary. There was complete lawlessness. The king ordered his ministers to find a solution. The ministers spotted five petty thieves who were around 25-years-old and found a solution. They made a rule – "All 25-year olds will pay a penalty of 1,000 coins and will undergo a reformation programme." This is also the reality of Bengaluru"s lake pollution. The city"s lakes are polluted because the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB)"s Sewage Treatment Plants(STPs) are not working, industries are letting pollutants into lakes, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has been giving approvals without checking compliance and so on. There is complete lawlessness on lake pollution.  Also, a few apartments, constituting less than one per cent of the tens of thousands of law abiding ones in Bengaluru, are letting out untreated sewage into lakes. The thousands of old ...

Malad's sewage treatment plant to generate 847 million litres on non-potable wat 4.8.2017 mumbai
Representational Pic After being on paper for almost 10 years, the Centre's environment clearance for the BMC's ambitious Malad sewerage treatment plant (STP) project has come as a big boost. The project, that is estimated to cost R1,800 crore, will generate 847 million litres of treated water daily that can be used for non-potable purposes. While the project is planned across 5,500 hectares, the waste water generated in the north end of the city will be treated through this project. As a large number of mangroves are likely to be destroyed during the construction of this plant, the BMC has been mandated to plant three times the number of mangroves cut. However, the forest department's clearance remains a roadblock in the project. What has come as a relief to the civic body is the no-objection certificate received from the HC to cut the mangroves. The permission from the environment ministry for the project came late last month. Dr Sanjay Mukherjee, additional municipal commissioner of BMC, tweeted ...
