IISc professor's blueprint favours Jakkur model for Bellandur, Varthur lakes 25.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A blueprint for rejuvenation of Bellandur and Varthur lakes has called for treatment of sewage through integrated constructed wetlands on the lines of the Jakkur lake model. This model has combined secondary treatment plant with constructed wetlands and algae ponds to remove nutrients from the lake. Prepared by Dr T V Ramachandra and team from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Centre for Ecological Studies, the blueprint also seeks recovery of the area identified for Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the region between Agaram and Bellandur lakes. The Revised Master Plan (RMP-2015) had shown this area as 40 acres. On the suggested Jakkur model, the blueprint said: "Complete removal of nutrients and chemical contaminants happens when treated sewage (secondary treated) passes through constructed wetlands and algae pond, undergoes bio-physical and chemical processes. The water in the lake is almost potable with minimal nutrients and microbial counts." This model, it said, has been functional successfully ...

Deadline looms, govt begins lake cleaning 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The state government on Thursday got cracking on cleaning up the Bellandur lake, a day after the National Green Tribunal set it a month's deadline. Chief Secretary Subash Chandra Kuntia met top officials from various agencies and urged them to work on a war footing. The meeting was prompted by tribunal chairman Justice Swantater Kumar's order on Wednesday to close down all 585 industries in the vicinity of the lake. He also sought an action-taken report within two weeks. On Thursday, Kuntia called for detailed reports on what various government agencies had done to stop the lake from frothing. The top bureaucrat has convened another meeting on Friday to chalk out an expeditious and concerted plan to restore the lake, notorious for frothing and even catching fire. Mahendra Jain, Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Development, told DH it was difficult to show major improvement in two weeks.He estimates the construction of sewage treatment plants will take at least two years. "In the meantime, we will remove ...

BWSSB plans to issue final notification on treatment plants in apartments 18.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Amid opposition from apartment dwellers on mandatory installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs), the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) plans to send out the final notification in a day or two to the government. BWSSB chairman Tushar Girinath told Deccan Herald, "We plan to send a final notification to the government first and once they give us the green signal, steps will be taken to issue directions to apartments for implementation of the final notification immediately. We will have no consultations with apartments since we had called for objections to the draft notification from the public on March 18." Along with installation of STPs, dual piping is mandatory for apartment complexes with 50 or more flats, according to BWSSB's earlier notification. Girinath said the components included in the draft notification have been retained in the final notification. BWSSB engineer-in-chief, Kemparamaiah said, "The objective of the notification is to reduce water consumption and reuse it ...
