Water Crisis: Everyone cries politics, but no one wants to be named 15.4.2018 Deccan Herald - News
Winter is long gone, and whatever we can call spring in this city has also passed, and we see the first sign that tells us summer has begun: water tankers. Citizens in many parts of the city suffer from an insufficient supply of water to their areas and are desperate for these tankers. While the BWSSB order mandates that water should be supplied every alternate day, the reality is far from this. One of the areas that do not receive the necessary amount of water in the city is the Saibaba temple road in Doddanekundi. What strikes one about this locality is that the Doddanekundi lake is right next to it, yet the residents of this locality suffer greatly. Here the residents get Cauvery water only once a week. Usually released on Friday or Saturday, the flow of water, which is "like a thread", lasts a couple of hours before stopping. "Its all politics! Theres a man who comes here to turn on the tap. One day I asked him why our area gets so little water. He replied that the other areas dont get more water, ...

Summer in, Tankers out 14.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Water tankers rule the roost on city outskirts. People are forced to buy water as BWSSB is yet to cover the entire city. Summer is here and so is the demand for water tankers in the city. This unregulated business in the city has been flourishing ever since 8 city municipal councils (CMCs), one town municipal council (TMC) and 110 villages were brought under Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike (BBMP)in 2007. Most apartments mushrooming on city outskirts have no water supplied by Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). According to officials, BWSSB despite having Cauvery water being supplied to over 9 lakh consumers, the city still falls short of the requirement which is largely fulfilled by private water tankers. Bhushan Iyer, a resident of Springfields Apartments located on Sarjapura Road says for the 550 odd apartments, they are spending nearly Rs 1 crore per year only for water. Apartments that have come up in East Bengaluru like Whitefield, Mahadevapura, KR Puram, Marathhalli, Sarjapura ...

Citizens, civic groups, lake activists cry foul, wants KLCDA to remain 7.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Bengalurus vocal, active citizen groups have come together yet again to protect city lakes from being taken over by Minor Irrigation department. They are just not in favour of killing an institution as promising as the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA). Many lake activists, guardians and lake groups have written multiple letters and signed petitions asking the government not to go ahead with the move. They have also forwared these to the Governor, Vajubhai Vala. Lake experts say that the urban lakes and tanks improve the catchment area. Developing these water bodies increases the chance of raising the groundwater level. But doing this requires a certain degree of expertise and skill sets. By handing over local lakes to an agency governed by the State is like taking away the rights of local people, who have been closely involved with the development of lakes.

People's problems 25.3.2018 deccanherald.com
BBMPs no action It is to bring to the notice of the authorities concerned about the menace of garbage dumping we face. Waste is dumped close to our apartment but it has not been cleared for several months now. The piling up of the garbage is a regular affair and needs a consistent and permanent solution by BBMP. We have taken several steps to get it cleared like- raising a complaint through the Fix My Street app, submitting a written complaint at the BBMPs corporate office and even sent pictures of the mess through the Clean Bangalore app. But there was no action taken.

BBMP revives Kalkere Lake 22.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has revived the Kalkere lake near Ramamurthy Nagar in the city. The civic body had undertaken the rejuvenation project about two years ago as the lake was completely polluted with sewage water entering into it from places such as Horamavu, Kalkere, Hebbal and Nagawara. In order to prevent this, the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has set up a sewage treatment plant (STP) near Horamavu region. Now, about 2 crore litres of treated water is being released from the STP into the lake. The civic body has also removed silt from the lake and planted saplings that absorb nitrates and phosphates. A provision for boating will also be made for tourists to go around the lake. Along with this, a pathway of 6.75 km has been laid for walkers. The lake has been completely fenced. A separate provision has also been made for people to immerse idols during the Ganesha festival. Apart from this, the lake has also become a habitat for birds and different variety of ...
