Tamil Nadu: 'App'solutely right for sanitation 26.5.2017
CHENNAI: The Septage Management Guidelines issued by the Tamil Nadu government in 2014 to regulate septic tank design, transporters license and issues related to effectively managing sewage faded out within less than six months. And the result was overflowing community and public toilets, stinking buildings and not to forget the humiliating ranking in Swachh Survekshan Survey 2017. In a move aimed at bringing the guidelines back into effect, the Tamil Nadu Urban Sanitation Programme (TNUSSP) under the aegis of the Municipal Administration and Water Supply (Maws) is going to launch an app called Muzhu Sugadharam by June. “The application will provide accurate data about septic tanks in households, areas having access to containment, number of toilets built under Swachh Bharat scheme, number of sewage truck operators, location of sewage treatment plants and the technologies they use and so on. This way we can know where we are lacking,” Kavitha Wankhade, team leader TNUSSP, told Deccan Chronicle. The ...

Kannur: INA okays demands, stir ends 25.5.2017
Kannur: The 85-day long protest by a section of people from Ramanthali village in front of the Indian Naval Academy under the banner of Jana Aarogya Samrakshana Samithi (JASS) against INA’s sewage treatment plant (STP) came to an end on Wednesday as the INA authorities agreed to their demands. On Tuesday evening, INA commandant Vice Admiral S.V. Bhokare along with deputy commandant Rear Admiral M. D. Suresh and station commander Commodore Kamalesh Kumar held a meeting with protesters in a bid to resolve the ongoing concern of groundwater contamination. Following the meeting, on Wednesday morning the protest was officially ended by giving lemon juice to K.P. Parameswari, who was undergoing hunger strike. The INA’s sudden move came at a time when the Chief of Sri Lankan Navy Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne is scheduled to visit the Academy on Saturday for reviewing Passing out Parade (POP). During the meeting, Vice Admiral Bhokare informed the protesters that it had hired a reputed consultant ...

Sigh of relief for Kannur Naval Academy 25.5.2017
Kannur: As the four-month-long protest by Ramanthali villagers ended on Wednesday, the INA officials heaved a sigh of relief ahead their prestigious passing out parade (POP) on Saturday. If the protest was not over, it would have been an embarrassing moment for Navy as a foreign naval chief is reviewing the parade for the first time in the INA's history. Villagers are also happy by the fact that without the support of political parties in the region, they were able to taste the success. On January 27 they staged a procession to INA alleging the faulty sewage treatment plant (STP) was causing a huge rise in water level in the nearby wells. As the protest intensified, Kannur district collector assigned a team comprising Thalassery sub-collector, groundwater department and pollution control board officials to visit the spot and prepare a report. Later, Centre for Water Resources Development and Management (CWRDM) also conducted a study on the water samples collected from the INA campus and nearby areas. The ...

Yamunanagar, May 23

The ONGC will drill 10 water wells along the paleo-channels of the Saraswati river in Haryana.

Sources say the Haryana Saraswati Heritage Develpment Board (HSHDB) has already identified locations to drill six of the 10 water wells (four in Yamunanagar and one each in Kaithal and Fatehabad districts).

According to information, the board is yet to identify the locations to drill the remaining four water wells.

Belagavi farmers threaten suicide over STP 20.5.2017
Belagavi: Threatening to commit suicide en masse, farmers in Belagavi have written to  Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to immediately stop the setting up of a sewage treatment plant (STP) on the fertilile agriculture land acquired by the government near the Suvarna Vidhan Soudha in Halaga, Belagavi. The agitating farmers headed by president of the Shetkari Sanghatana, Narayan Sawant appealed to the government to stop the destruction of their fertile land which  they had cultivated for years. Alleging that a section of politicians in Belagavi was conspiring to destroy their livelihood, the farmers suggested the government identify some other location for the STP which was planned under the Smart City project. Going into its history,  they recalled that the government had first acquired 40 acres of  fertile land for the STP in Belagavi city in 1974 but gave up the idea for the sake of the farmers. Another STP project was proposed in 1977 but was dropped once again for the same reason. Some 10 years later, ...
