Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: Congress, BJP plays blame game, North Karnataka parched 26.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The dispute over Mahadayi river which has been on the boil since the 80s, has reached a flash point in the parched North Karnataka region in the run-up to the state Assembly elections. The farmers here want Karnataka to build a series of dams, canals and barrages to route Mahadayi river water to the Malaprabha basin and the namesake dam off Saundatti in Belgaum district to meet the drinking and irrigation requirements of the water-scarce Bagalkot, Gadag, Dharwad and Belgaum districts. Over 500 farmers from the region including several women and children are leaving on Wednesday night for Delhi under the umbrella organisation Karnataka Rayat Sena (KRS). They have been given an appointment to meet President Ram Nath Kovind on April 29 where they will submit a memorandum, KRS chairperson Veeresh Sobradamat told DNA. "In the memorandum, we have asked the Centre to intervene and give us water as the region has seen several farmer suicides because of lack of water. If the Centre can't do that, they should ...

CSIO develops water pollution testing system 25.4.2018 The Tribune
Chandigarh, April 24 With heavy presence of pollutants in water due to increasing industrialisation and anthropogenic activities becoming a cause of concern, the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) here has developed a portable “integrated optical system” for field detection of major water pollutants such as arsenic, nitrates and fluoride. The system can be deployed in varied urban, rural and industrial settings for detection and monitoring of these chemical pollutants in ground water, waste water, river water and industrial effluents. These pollutants are known to cause fluorosis (dental, skeletal and non-skeletal), arsenosis, cancer and blue-baby syndrome on consumption beyond permissible limit. Prof RK Sinha, CSIO director, said the availability of such a system would reduce dependence on laboratory-based expensive equipment used by state and private testing labs for monitoring of these pollutants before consumption and identifying its source of origin so as to facilitate government ...

Poisoning disaster brewing in waters 25.4.2018 The Tribune
Kuljit Bains Much as the ground water crisis caused by agriculture in Punjab is discussed and well documented, there is another crisis no less serious, and perhaps with graver consequences in the short run, brewing in the state. Poisoning of our waters  in rivers, in ground, and on the surface through household effluents released untreated. Under immediate threat is the health of the states residents in the present day as well as that of future generations through chemical residues permeating into the ground. The Tribune reported last week a shocking practice of a village (Ramuwala Daliawali, Faridkot) having bored a 260-foot deep hole in the ground and injecting sewage into it. Their simple explanation is there is no other option, as the village pond is also not capable of handling the wastewater. Earlier there have been reports of even some industries doing the same with their effluents surreptitiously on their premises. The consequences over the long term cannot be hard to imagine. And there is no ...
