Hyderabad: Work begins on NTR marg sewage line 21.8.2017
Hyderabad: A year after the NTR Marg road caved in, the HMWSSB began work on Sunday to rehabilitate the old dilapidated sewage pipeline that passes under the road. Officials said that a new trenchless system will be used with CITP technique that involves placing a new liner inside the existing 1.5 km pipeline. In order to carry out the work seamlessly, a new metallic pipeline can now be seen running along the edge of the famous NTR road. This pipe will divert water from the three upstream manholes so that the lining work can be done in the area. The 1.5 km pipeline is over 25 years old and was damaged due to the heavy flow in its lines.  The pipeline carries sewage from the pipelines of Somajiguda and Amberpet Sewage treatment Plants (STPs). "This metallic line on the road will be carrying sewage out to the downstream manhole until the lining work is complete. The entire 1.5 km stretch of the sewer lines will take six months time to complete," said Mr Majeed Afjal, the general manager ...

Functioning of the Sewage Treatment Plant located in Kodli, which used to generate a bad odour and pollute the surrounding area, has been improved in the past six months, claims BJP MP Maheish Girri from the east Delhi Lok Sabha constituency, on Saturday. "The Sewage Treatment Plant, that started its operation in 2013, was generating a bad amount of odour and pollution for local residents due to lack of maintenance and faulty operations. As soon as the residents approached me, I took cognisance of the problem and held a number of meetings with Delhi Jal Board (DJB) officials over the issue," he said. "The situation of the Plant today has improved drastically. To a great extent, the bad odour has reduced and pollution has been controlled," he added. He also directed DJB officials to take urgent steps to remove sludge on a daily basis, plant more trees, and take required steps to quell the bad odour and stop pollution.

Activists demand action to prevent Mysuru from going the B'luru way 17.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Even before Independence, Mysuru was hailed for being a planned city. It had a well-designed underground drainage system and was believed to be a 'royal city' because it was known for being well-maintained and clean. Of late however, the city is going the Bengaluru way as the officials concerned have failed to plan infrastructure according to the expansion of the city. They have also failed to maintain the existing systems in good condition. Of late, there has been discussion on the encroachment of canals that once pumped water to Kukkarahalli Lake which is situated in the heart of the city. Many lakes, which once dotted the city landscape, such as the Doddakere, Subarayana Kere, Jakkarayana Kere, etc have given way to so called development. A canal, that is also called Rajakaluve, which originates at the Vishwamanava Park, near the JSS Vidyapeetha, passes through the Doddakere Grounds and along the Ooty Road before reaching the Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram. It flows to the brim when it rains and ...

SC refuses to restore firm's contract for sewage plant at Bellandur lake 14.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to interfere with cancellation of a contract for building a sewage treatment plant for cleaning the Bellandur lake in Bengaluru. The court also questioned a company's move to challenge the cancellation of contract awarded to it. "How can your client expect the Supreme Court to intervene and determine whom should a contract be allotted to," a bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and Navin Sinha asked senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for GSJ Envo Ltd. The company deals in construction, operation and maintenance of sewage treatment plants. The company, also represented by advocate Sanjay M Nuli, argued that the contract was awarded to it and a letter of acceptance issued on February 21, 2014. But the chief minister cancelled the contract on October 18, 2014, on the basis of a note prepared by the chief secretary following adverse media reports and considering "incorrect estimation" of the project, the counsel contended. The company claimed that the contract was ...

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 ...

Treated sewage water to irrigate farm land 9.8.2017 deccanherald.com
If everything goes as per the plan, treated water at Kurnadu liquid waste management structure in Bantwal taluk may soon irrigate agricultural fields. Zilla Panchayat deputy secretary N R Umesh said that the Balepuni Gram Panchayat had objected to letting treated water flow into a water body when the additional work on the sewage treatment plant (STP) was started at an estimated cost of Rs 8 lakh under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS). As a result, the work on the treatment unit was halted. On July 25, Umesh, who is also nodal officer, convened a meeting with the representatives of the region and decided to use the treated water from the plant to irrigate farmland. "Even farmers have sought treated water from the treatment plant as and when they turned operational. The treated water would be made to flow into the farm ponds constructed in farmers land, from where the farmers can lift the water for irrigation purpose. Using the subsidy from the government under the ...
