IISc professor's blueprint favours Jakkur model for Bellandur, Varthur lakes 25.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A blueprint for rejuvenation of Bellandur and Varthur lakes has called for treatment of sewage through integrated constructed wetlands on the lines of the Jakkur lake model. This model has combined secondary treatment plant with constructed wetlands and algae ponds to remove nutrients from the lake. Prepared by Dr T V Ramachandra and team from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Centre for Ecological Studies, the blueprint also seeks recovery of the area identified for Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the region between Agaram and Bellandur lakes. The Revised Master Plan (RMP-2015) had shown this area as 40 acres. On the suggested Jakkur model, the blueprint said: "Complete removal of nutrients and chemical contaminants happens when treated sewage (secondary treated) passes through constructed wetlands and algae pond, undergoes bio-physical and chemical processes. The water in the lake is almost potable with minimal nutrients and microbial counts." This model, it said, has been functional successfully ...

Residents' efforts raise hopes for Vibhutipura lake 23.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Residents of various localities on the periphery of Vibhutipura lake took part in 'Run4Lake-5k' initiative on Sunday, to raise awareness about the dying water body, near HAL airport. Organised by VIKAS (Vibhutipura Kere Abhivruddhi Mattu Samrakshane Samiti) - a residents' body - the programme saw the participation of around 500 people, including schoolchildren, from LBS Nagar, Vignan Nagar, Vibhutipura, Annasandra Palya, Basavanagar and nearby areas. The second edition of 'Run4Lake-5k' supported by India@75 movement - apart from creating awareness on lakes - aimed at drawing the attention of government authorities to expedite restoration work of the dilapidated water body. VIKAS members said the lake lacked outer and inner fencing and faced issues like garbage dumping and sewage contamination. They said the sewage diversion pipeline project that was once abandoned had been restarted by BBMP, but the work remained incomplete. "The biggest problem facing the lake is the flow of sewage water into it. Many ...

5 more lines to supply recycled water to city's gardens 22.4.2017 DNA: India
After a proposal to lay down a separate pipeline to supply recycled water to Raj Bhawan for non-potable purposes received the civic standing committee's approval, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has planned to lay down five more such pipelines in the city. The water supply and sewage operation department of BMC has already started working on the proposal. "We have been working on laying down five more separate pipelines to supply recycled water to gardens and parks,"said a BMC official. Earlier this week, the pipeline to Raj Bhawan had received an approval. As per the plan, the separate pipeline will be laid down from the sewage treatment plant to nearby gardens or parks. The Dadar-based sewage treatment plant will supply recycled water to Pramod Mahajan Kala Park in Dadar and a separate pipeline will be laid down for the purpose. The Dadar plant has a capacity to recycle around 300 MLD water on a daily basis. Similarly, a separate pipeline will be laid down from Worli, Colaba, Bandra, ...

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 ...
