BENGALURU: The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, which could not get its away with a retrospective rule on STPs for apartments with 50 units and above, now aims to seriously implement the rainwater harvesting plan. Of the 1.5 lakh buildings identified in the city, only 80,488 have installed RWH structures on their premises. Board claims to have collected over Rs 15 crore in fines from offenders.

BENGALURU: BWSSB's retrospective rule mandating sewage treatment plants (STPs) for apartments with 50 and above units should be withdrawn immediately, demanded BBMP leader of opposition Padmanabha Reddy.

Pinarayi Vijayan govt mulls promotion of 'green habitat' concept in Kerala 3.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Amid concerns about unscientific construction practises, the Kerala government is considering promoting a 'green habitat' concept giving thrust to eco-friendly and reusable building materials, natural water storage and solid waste management. Haritha Keralam Mission, the state-run agency which envisages a clean and green state, has initiated an initial round of discussion with various experts and stakeholders in this regard, official sources here said. An alternative and sustainable architecture practice would be promoted in place of the existing conventional mode of construction under the 'green habitat' concept, they said. The buildings, under the concept, are planned to be designed in such a way that natural sunlight and wind would be used to maximum and the usage of electricity reduces to the minimum. A rainwater harvesting or natural water storage system would be a sure feature of such 'green' buildings, where even kitchen and drainage water would be recycled and reused for other household purposes, ...

Andhra Pradesh: Residents body to take up civic woes 28.11.2017
Visakhapatnam: Andhra Pradesh Federation of Residents Welfare Associations (APFERWAS) which has already taken up 130 residential colony associations under its ambit to connect the civil society with the civic administration to address issues, has celebrated its first anniversary on Monday.    APFERWAS mainly focuses on the solid waste management, rooftop solar plants, rainwater harvesting and on top of all this, educating the public about the new RERA guidelines. The Federation has also conducted many workshops on these subjects for colony residents. Waste segregation at sources assumes significance as the cleanliness ranking survey is giving utmost importance to it. Hence, the role of the RWA is also important. The city is generating on an average 1,000 tonne of waste per day out of which 30 per cent is wet waste. At present, only 105 tonne is being segregated at the source, thereby causing inconvenience to GVMC sanitary workers. "Formation of the federation has not only helped the ...
