Life started limping back to normalcy in the Nallasapora-Vasai belt on Wednesday, which was marooned by the torrential rains for the past three days. On Wednesday afternoon, wading through waterlogged streets in many parts of Palghar district, residents stepped out to buy bare essentials.

Bottled water, that is normally sold at Rs 30 was being sold at Rs 80, while one litre milk was being sold for Rs 100.

Shedhi canal repairs still on, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation to supply bore well water 11.7.2018 DNA: India
Starting this summer, the city stopped receiving a 200 MLD water supply from Shedhi canal. There was reportedly a breach in the canal, and due to the ongoing repair work, water supply can only be resumed by June end. To compensate for this water shortage, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) continued acquiring water from bore wells. For one more month, the AMC will have to resort to groundwater for supplies. For this, the civic body is going to fetch water for 12 hours continuously. "Supply from the Shedhi canal has been delayed further by a month. So we have to depend on water from bore wells for that month. Shedhi canal is the main source of water for the Raska water treatment plant. From Raska treatment plant, AMC gets 250 MLD water," said a senior civic body official. "Constant use of groundwater has pushed the water level down from 15 feet to 18 feet. Due to delay in the onset of monsoons, the situation is likely to get worse if we continue extracting groundwater," said a civic official. In ...

Japan rains: Death toll goes up to 112; rescuers race to find survivors 9.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Rescuers in Japan dug through mud and rubble on Monday, racing to find survivors after torrential rain unleashed floods and landslides that killed at least 112 people, with dozens missing. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe cancelled an overseas trip to deal with Japan's worst flood disaster since 1983, with several million people forced from their homes. Officials said the overall economic impact was not clear. Rain tapered off across the western region on Monday to reveal blue skies and a scorching sun that pushed temperatures well above 30 Celsius (86 Fahrenheit), fuelling fears of heat-stroke in areas cut off from power or water. "We cannot take baths, the toilet doesn't work and our food stockpile is running low," said Yumeko Matsui, whose home in the city of Mihara, in Hiroshima prefecture, has been without water since Saturday. "Bottled water and bottled tea are all gone from convenience stores and other shops," the 23-year-old nursery school worker said at an emergency water supply station. Some 11,200 ...

Ahmedabad: Wastewater irrigation also leads to diarrhea! 27.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A study has found that a large portion of Ahmedabad's farming population relies on water unsuitable for irrigation, which has had significant adverse health effects on them. The year long study covered 187 households from four communities that used surface water, groundwater and wastewater for irrigation. Apart from getting reports about the health of the households, the study also analysed the water samples for E.coli and found that in all the three water sources, the average E-coli numbers per 100 ml exceeded the international irrigation water standard. The study also found a positive correlation between irrigation water quality and incidence of diarrhea. The study found that the incidence of diarrhea in areas that used groundwater (7.92 episodes/1000 person-week) was lesser than those that used wastewater (13.1 episodes) and surface water (13.4 episode). Overall, the incidence of diarrhea in the study sample was 11.5 episodes/1,000 person-weeks. Based on the microbiological assessment, the average E. ...
