Citizens' groups take pledge to save city's lakes 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Public representatives and members of various citizens groups on Friday took an oath to protect water bodies in Bengaluru. Launching their campaign, Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrasekhar, BJP MP P C Mohan and BJP MLA Aravind Limbavali along with a few corporators visited Bellandur, Varthur and Rampura lakes. During the inspection, citizens and politicians discussed the government's inaction in protecting lakes and deliberated over the need for civic agencies and citizens to collectively take the onus of restoring the lake ecosystem. Chandrasekhar said, "What we see today is clear evidence that there has been corruption in the state. Corruption is a culture that is now all-pervasive in the current government." N S Mukunda, founding president of Citizens' Action Forum hailed the initiative of building a strong group of people from every section of society to preserve the lake ecosystem. Naresh Narasimhan of a citizens' group Naagarika blamed the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for ...

By 2018, Bengaluru City may dip into TG Halli dam for a drink 25.4.2017 TOI: Bangalore Times
Three years of consecutive drought has left the state in a bad shape. And as Cauvery water, currently the lifeline of the city, is turning out to be startlingly inadequate to meet the city’s needs, the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) is looking to get 135-140 MLD (million litres per day) of additional drinking water from Thippagondanahalli Reservoir, or the TG Halli dam, by 2018.

Treated sewage for dry districts 24.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Even as work on weeding Bellandur lake has started, the government has entrusted the minor irrigation department with the task to flow the treated sewage water from Bellandur lake to Kolar and Chikkaballapur. "Work on this has already started. BWSSB will complete the installation of a 60-MLDSTP by the end of April and a 90 MLD STP by July. We are also laying pipelines. Once the STPs are completed and pipelines laid, work on pumping treated water from Bellandur lake to Kolar and Chikkaballapur via Narasapura tank will start. The whole project will be commissioned by 2018," a department engineer said. The department will lay 124-km pipelines to supply treated sewage. The project costs Rs 1,340 crore. But, members of the lake expert committee are not happy with the proposal. "The idea of supplying water to Kolar and Chikkaballapur is to recharge groundwater there. What about Bengaluru? The groundwater level in Bengaluru too has depleted. Treated water should be used to meet the drinking water needs of ...

Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off.

Promises unkept, another run to save Vibhutipura lake tomorrow 21.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Despite persistent efforts by hundreds of residents around it, the 45-acre Vibhutipura lake near HAL has been pushed to its deathbed. Desperate to save the water body from land sharks and spur the government to act on its promises, a Run4Lake is now organised on April 21 (Sunday). The lakes challenges are mounting: Incomplete fencing by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), unregulated inflow of untreated sewage through multiple inlets, indiscriminate dumping of debris and solid waste along its boundary. In February 2013, after much persuasion by citizens, the BDA had been entrusted with the development work. The objective was clear: To save whatever was left of the heavily encroached lake, fence it, stop sewage inflow, deweed and develop an ecosystem around. As the government agencies floundered, residents kept up the momentum. To interact with the agencies and involve volunteers and Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) in the rejuvenation efforts, they formed a trust, VIKAS (Vibhutipura Kere ...

HC stays proceedings against 2 retd BWSSB engineers 20.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The high court on Thursday stayed the lower court proceedings against two retired BWSSB engineers S Krishnappa and N Narasimha Murthy booked for failing to control pollution in the city's lakes.

The pollution control board (KSPCB) had initiated criminal proceedings against the engineers who had failed to control the flow of sewage water into Madiwala and Arakere lakes.

KSPCB had filed a complaint under the provisions of Water Act, 1974, where the board has contended that the sewage was allowed to flow into the stormwater drain (SWD), which ultimately reached the lakes and polluted them. The petitioners said sewage water flowed into the lake through SWD which are controlled by BBMP. They said sewage flows from 110 villages where BWSSB's infrastructure is not present.

At last, project to supply drinking water to 110 villages takes off 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The much awaited drinking water supply project for 110 villages that were added to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) about a decade ago, was launched by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah here on Wednesday. "The project, once executed, will benefit 12 lakh residents in five zones of the BBMP--Mahadevapura, Bommanahalli, Rajarajeshwari Nagar, Dasarahalli and Byatarayanapura,'' Siddaramaiah said. The total cost of the project is Rs 1,886 crore and it is expected to be completed in two years. The work will commence in a month's time. The project was mooted in November 2016. Besides water supply works, a proposal has been sent to the Union government to lay underground drainage lines and set up waste processing units and intermediate sewage pumping stations among other facilities in the 110 villages spread across 225 sqkm. The cost of this project is estimated to be Rs 5,052 crore. BWSSB chairman Tushar Girinath said that the Board has been directed by the chief minister to provide 10 tmc of Cauvery ...
