Will the froth at Varthur subside at last? 21.3.2017
Bengaluru: If all goes well, there could be a solution to the ever-frothing Varthur and Bellandur lakes. But the moot question is when will the government act on the recommendations to ensure that the lakes are free of pollution and contamination. Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia, Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain and other officials inspected the Varthur Lake on Sunday, and directed officials to clear the debris and encroachments within a week. After hearing the woes of residents living around the lake, Mr Khuntia told the officials to fence off the lake property where rampant dumping is taking place.

Chennai: Pond construction puts end to water plight 20.3.2017
Chennai: When Tamil Nadu is facing an acute water crisis, Adigathur poses an exceptional and plentiful scene with water-filled ponds and improved ground water levels even as the sun shows no mercy. Inspired by many environmentalists including Piyush Manush, the Panchayat Presidents, C. Sumathi and K. Chidambaranathan constructed nine ponds in the village utilising government funds. The village with a population of 2,800 noticed depletion in ground water levels 15 years ago following indiscriminate sand mining in the adjoining Cooum River,. “The borewells erected here got dry. There was a reduction in the ground water levels too. That’s when we had decided to construct ponds,” said Sumathi. The couple had travelled to Ralegan Siddhi, an ideal village developed by Anna Hazare, to formulate a plan on water conservation. “Bunds were constructed to retain water and to improve ground water levels,” explained Sumathi. Making use of MGNREGA, villagers were employed for the pond construction to create a sense of ...

Hyderabad: Indira Park to get Hussain Sagar water 16.3.2017
Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is likely to use Hussain Sagar water flowing into Snow World to make the boating facility and fountains operational in Indira Park and Lower Tank Bund. The authorities have identified a blockage downstream of Hussain Sagar, owing to which water from the lake is not flowing towards the park or towards Osmania University.
