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).

Mandya lakes fast disappearing to insatiable greed of land mafia 22.3.2018 deccanherald.com
At a time when World Water Day was observed on Thursday, to highlight the importance of freshwater and to advocate sustainable management of water resources, it has to be noted that a number of lakes developed by the erstwhile Mysuru kings in the districts have vanished due to the insatiable greed of the land mafia. The lakes are slowly disappearing, turning into layouts, due to encroachment. The Wadiyar kings had constructed hundreds of lakes in the district and had planned them in such a way that if one lake fills, it flows to the next, into smaller ones. If Konanahalli and Chikkamandya lakes in Mandya taluk were filled, the excess water would flow into many smaller lakes. Similarly, Palakere in Nagamangala taluk, Soolekere in Maddur taluk, Malavalli lake, Menasu lake in K R Pet taluk, used to fill many smaller ones. With most of the lakes being encroached upon, their sizes have reduced, resulting in depletion of watertable. Water shortage is said to be the main reason for the Mysugar factory stopping ...

Stories the structures tell 26.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
River Hemavathi originates in the Western Ghats and flows through Hassan and Mandya districts making them fertile, before joining the River Cauvery just before the Krishna Raja Sagara (KRS) Dam. River Yagachi, which is famous for adventure sports, is its main tributary. There are many interesting sites along the river in Hassan district that are worth a visit, especially during the monsoon season. On the banks of River Hemavathi is a town named after the river and the main deity worshipped in the town â€" Holenarsipura. No one knows for sure when the temple was built. It could belong to the Chola period or the Hoysala period with later additions by Palegars (local chieftains) and the Wadiyars. Some are of the opinion that the temple was built in the 16th century by the Palegars. According to local legends, Sage Vasishta prayed to Lord Vishnu in his Narasimha form at the very place where the temple is situated. When Lord Narasimha, pleased by the penance of the sage, appears and gives him a ...

SC reduces Tamil Nadu's share of Cauvery water 16.2.2018 Deccan Herald - TOP STORIES RSS FEEDS
The Supreme Court on Friday directed for additional intake of 14.75 TMC ft of Cauvery river water for Karnataka by reducing the overall quantum of water to be released for Tamil Nadu from Biligundulu dam per annum from 192 to 177.25 TMCft. The top court reiterated that the waters of an inter-state river passing through the corridors of the riparian states constituted national asset and cannot be said to be located in any one state. "Being in a state of flow, no state can claim exclusive ownership of such waters or assert a prescriptive right so as to deprive the other states of their e

SC directs Karnataka to release 177.25 tmcft Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu 16.2.2018 Deccan Herald - National
The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunals decision of 2007 for distribution of river water but reduced the quantum of water to be released by Karnataka for Tamil Nadu from from 192 to 177 TMCft. A three judge presided over by Chief Justice Dipak Misra passed the judgement in the protracted dispute involving Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry. "We are of the view that the final decision of the tribunal cannot be declared as illegal or fallacious," the bench also comprising Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar said. The court rejected Karnatakas contentions that pre-Constitution agreements between the Maharaja of Mysore and Madras Presidency entered into in 1892 and 1924 cannot be relied upon. The court termed Karnatakas plea "unconscionable". "We are of the opinion that the tribunal was correct in its approach. No single state can claim exclusive right over the use of natural resources like water," the bench said. The court, however, allowed Karnatakas plea for ...
