Bengaluru: The sewage treatment plant (STP) at Ulsoor Lake is nearing completion and is set to be opened by mid-February. An official from Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) said, "The structure is complete and the plant is being set up. A few last-minute works are being carried out and once the technical and mechanical process is tested, it is good to go." The capacity of the plant is 2 MLD (million litre per day), built on a 30x30 metre area, said a BWSSB engineer, who did not wish to be named. "Sewage water flowing from areas in central and eastern divisions of the city was being let into a restricted area near the lake. Still, sewage water entered the lake, polluting it. With the STP, the sewage water will be treated before being let into the lake," he said. A few organisations had opposed the move of letting treated water into the lake as they thought it would harm the aquatic habitat and pollute the water. But the engineer said that sewage water will be ...

Chennai: Egrets have arrived in large numbers to Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram after a span of three years, thanks to recent monsoon rains and the harvest season, Pongal. The birds are usually found in paddy fields. "With monsoon bringing back farming in neighbouring districts, the fields are now flocked by egrets and other terrestrial birds. Bird migration is also at its peak with the painted stork arriving at Vedanthangal bird sanctuary", said a forest official in Chennai.

BBMP trashed for kitchen pulverisers 5.1.2018
Bengaluru: Environmentalists are strongly against the BBMP's  move to make kitchen pulverisers mandatory in households and hotels, warning it could lead to foaming in  aeration tanks and make life difficult for people in the long run. An online petition ,which has received over a 1000 signatures, argues that  if the pipes are blocked, the raw sewage could burst out of the manholes and has suggested that  restaurants use oil and grit separators to make sure that oil and fat does not reach the drains and lakes. The concerned ecologists warn that the Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) will cease to operate as they are not designed for the immense pressure that they will put under should this move become a reality. "If kitchen pulverisers are introduced the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) will more than the double , making it impossible for the treatment plants  to continue. In the bargain the sewage will flow directly into the lakes which have been rejuvenated recently," ...
