Members of Cauvery Nadhi Swacchata Andolana Samiti, who have been seeking stringent action from the district administration to save river Cauvery from further pollution, have now demanded Deputy Commissioner Richard Vincent D'Souza to ban tourists from visiting Dubare Elephant Camp. The activists have reasoned that the increasing number of tourist numbers is also one of the reasons for pollution of the water body at its source of origin in the district. Hence, a new elephant camp should be started near Chiklihole reservoir and Dubare Elephant Camp should be linked by a hanging bridge, they said. 'Remove buildings' The buildings on riverbeds coming under Kushalnagar Town Panchayat jurisdiction should be removed and measures should be taken to develop the same land as a lung space by planting saplings. Dry pits should be constructed to check the flow of waste and sewage into river Cauvery, till underground drainage works are completed, they demanded.

The Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) have come forward to revive the Thippagondanahalli reservoir, which was once the primary drinking water source for Bengaluru. Bengaluru Development Minister K J George inspected the reservoir and discussed with officials the measures to be taken for its restoration on Wednesday. "There is a plan to supply 1.8 tmcft of water from the Yettinahole project to this reservoir. Before the project is ready, there is a need to clean the water," George said. BWSSB chief engineer (Cauvery) Mahesh said: "There was inadequate rainfall in the region this year. At present, the water level in the reservoir is 38 feet. Even sewage water is flowing into the lake from unauthorised buildings. The water is not suitable for drinking as it is mixed with effluents," he said. To clean the lake using reverse osmosis (RO) technology, we require Rs 108 crore. The process might take at least two to three years, he added. George ...
