Hyderabad: Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL), India’s leading multinational infrastructure company, has set a record by completing construction of the world’s largest lift irrigation project at Kaleshwaram in Telangana state in record time.

New Delhi:  The recent report of NITI Aayog on groundwater level says 21 Indian cities including Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad  will run out of groundwater by 2020, affecting around 100 million people. It also says that 40 per cent of India's population will have no access to drinking water by 2030.The situation is alarming, given the fact that year 2020 is not very far. Three rivers, four water bodies, five wetlands and six forests have completely dried in Chennai despite having better water resources and rains than any other metro cities, the report said. "The government is depending upon desalination in Chennai which is very expensive; also they forget that the earth is a limited planet and oceans will dry. What will we leave for our children and grandchildren? We may have a lot of money but we cannot ask our children to drink money instead of water. Using ocean water and desalination is not the solution but water harvesting is" said former director of National ...

Musi river's rubber dam ineffective 14.6.2019
Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation had spent Rs 5.64 crore on a dam on the Musi River to impress the late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, but in just three months it became unusable and is now a problem for the Musi Riverfront Development Corporation (MRDC) as it has become choked with huge amounts of solid waste. The dam was built in 2009 using Austrian technology and was expected to hold enough water to flood the area behind it and recreate the magic of a river filled with water. It is now a breeding site for mosquitoes for 365 days a year and choked with sewage water. But it can be neither repaired nor removed. A corporation official claims that MRDC cannot remove the rubber dam since it would face audit issues. As per highly placed sources, the 80-metre rubber dam near the High Court was constructed as part of the Musi beautification project. The authorities back then stopped the upstream sewage water for a few weeks and pumped in Godavari water to give the impression that ...

Excess water being released to Pakistan to prevent floods: Amarinder 13.6.2019
Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh Thursday dubbed PEP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira's accusation of release of excess water to Pakistan as "politically motivated", saying surplus water was being discharged to prevent flooding in areas along the Sutlej and the Beas rivers. Punjab Ekta Party (PEP) chief Khaira on Wednesday had reportedly alleged that excess flow of water was being diverted to Pakistan from Harike headworks even as the state's canals were running dry in the summer season. Reacting to the allegation, the chief minister said the decision to release excess water in a regulated manner was a "precautionary measure" taken by a technical committee meeting held on May 28, in which all partner states were represented. "The surplus water is being discharged as a precautionary measure to prevent flooding in the areas along the Sutlej and the Beas rivers," Singh said in an official release here. A unanimous view emerged in the meeting that there was ...
