SIPCOT mulls own water source for its units 17.10.2019
THOOTHUKUDI: The State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Ltd., (SIPCOT) has been planning to create its own water source for industrial units within its industrial parks, which is now being supplied by the Tamil Nadu Water Supply and Drainage (TWAD) board. "Works are on to prepare a water security plan engaging IIT, Chennai," said J Kumaraguruparan, managing director of SIPCOT. The plan is aimed at making all 19 SIPCOT run industrial parks in the state, self-sufficient in water by completely avoiding getting water from TWAD board. This is expected to bring down the pressure on drinking water supply by the TWAD board, said the SIPCOT MD, who also added that around 150 major and minor tanks within SIPCOT land would be renovated to hold rain water. Establishing desalination plants to ensure soft water supply to the industrial parks, SIPCOT has been exploring possibilities of using recycled sewage water for industrial purposes. Responding to the growing public resentment against ...

New power plants in Asia can face power scarcity 16.10.2019
Washington: A new study has found that climate change and over-tapped waterways may significantly affect developing parts of Asia because of the lack of water to cool power plants. The work was published today in the journal of 'Energy and Environment Science'. "One of the impacts of climate change is that the weather is changing, which leads to more extreme events -- more torrential downpours and more droughts," said Jeffrey Bielicki, a co-author of the study and an associate professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering and the John Glenn College of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University. "The power plants -- coal, nuclear and natural gas power plants -- require water for cooling, so when you don't have the rain, you don't have the streamflow, you can't cool the power plant," added Bielicki. That is already a problem for some power plants in the United States, Bielicki said, where extreme weather ...

Dewatered lakes will cause water shortage 15.10.2019
Hyderabad: The government"s attempt to dewater city lakes could affect replenishment of aquifers and leave the city short of groundwater in the summer. The lakes are being dewatered for Mission Kakatiya. Experts like Dr B.V. Subba Rao said lakes are the best for continuous replenishment of the aquifers. Since water was not allowed into the lakes, the city could face a difficult summer. "The government and its civic bodies have been bleeding the city dry by dewatering the lakes. The city cannot collect more rainwater that has run off from the roads," Dr Rao told Deccan Chronicle. He added that the city was facing a problem of severe inundation problem because the nalas that feed into the lakes have been blocked. The lakes are being starved at a time when a report from the Niti Aayog, a government think tank, has noted that Hyderabad is among the cities that would run out of groundwater by 2020. The current rate of exploitation in the Hyderabad district is over 300 per cent. An official ...

KCR's words enable encroachers 15.10.2019
Hyderabad: The government"s proposal to scrap Government Order 111, which creates a 10-km pollution-free zone around the Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, has resulted in rampant encroachment of the channels that bring water to the two reservoirs. Though successive governments have systematically damaged the reservoirs" infrastructure, the present dispensation has decided to bring the axe down on GO 111 claiming it was hindering development in the area. Cutting across party lines, almost every politician, industrialist and businessman owns establishments in violation of GO 111. Due to the damage to the inlet channels caused by the encroachments, the two reservoirs, created a century ago to prevent floods and provide drinking water to the city, did not receive any water though the state received heavy rainfall this season. Officials of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board claimed that they had cleared the feeder channels between March and May. The lakes did not get water as ...
