Gujarat Govt to conduct 'Yagna' for good monsoons 25.5.2018 General News
As water levels in reservoirs across Gujarat are dipping rapidly, the state government has decided not to take any chances with vagaries of monsoon. It is going to organise "Parjanya Yagna", which, it believes, will ensure good rains. These rituals will be performed at 41 places in 33 districts and eight major cities on May 31. The Yagna will mark the culmination of the government's water conservation drive 'Sujalam Sufalam Jal Abhiyan', said Water Supply Minister Parbat Patel. "The government has decided to perform Parjanya Yagna so that we get good rains this time. Ministers will also take part in this endeavour, aimed at filling up the water bodies de-silted during the Jal Abhiyan," said Patel. Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said a Yagna is an invite to the rain god. "As we have deepened several water bodies during this drive, we will now invite the rain god through this Yagna to fill them up," Rupani told reporters at Dwarka. The Jal Abhiyan was launched on May 1, during .

At least 41 killed as dam bursts in Kenya, officials say 10.5.2018 General News
A dam burst its banks in Kenya's Rift Valley, killing at least 41 people and forcing hundreds from their homes, officials said today. At least 20 of the dead were children, police said. Water burst through the banks of the Patel Dam in Solai, Nakuru County, on Wednesday night, sweeping away hundreds of homes, including those on the expansive Nyakinyua estate that borders the reservoir. "Many people are missing. It is a disaster," said Rongai town police chief Joseph Kioko. Nearly 170 people have now died since March from floods caused by seasonal rains, according to Kenyan authorities. The floods hit as the East African nation was recovering from a severe drought that affected half of the country. Almost an entire village was swept away by silt and water from the burst dam, said Gideon Kibunja, the county police chief in charge of criminal investigations. Officials said homes over a radius of nearly 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) were submerged. Close to 40 people were rescued from the mud .

Dredging of Umiam reservoir not cost effective: James 11.4.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, April 11: Dredging of the Umiam reservoir to eliminate the silt deposits and enhance the storage capacity is not an attractive proposition for the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government as informed by State Power Minister, James Sangma who has put under question the effectiveness of such an operation.
“The cost of dredging even this insignificant volume of 1.53% of the live storage will involve a cost of about Rs 41 crores at the rate of Rs 189 per cubic metre (2004) which is not economically viable,” James said in the Assembly on Wednesday while quoting a report on the siltation study conducted by M/s Tojo Vikas (India) Pvt Ltd (TVIPL).
