KLCDA experts want desilting of Kukkarahalli lake stopped 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Technical Committee constituted by the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA) to study the pros and cons of desilting Kukkrahalli lake has recommended diversion of the existing inlets and filling up of the lake with clean water instead of desilting the lake. The University of Mysore (UoM), the custodian of the lake, had taken up development works, including desilting at a cost of Rs 3 crore but following opposition from eco-activists, Deputy Commissioner DRandeep had asked the university to stop the works. The technical team, comprising Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, retired professor Rama Prasad and retired engineer C N Babu, objected to the university's move to desilt the lake. The experts have observed that sewage comes through natural drains and carries rainwater during monsoon. The rainwater should be diverted because it gets mixed with sewage and pollutes the lake. The members have recommended pumping out existing polluted water before filling the lake ...

CCTV cameras around Bellandur lake 21.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The BBMPbegan work on installing surveillance cameras around Bellandur lake on Friday, two days after the National Green Tribunal cracked the whip on its clean-up. The cameras will help catch and penalise those who dump garbage and construction debris in the 900-acre water body. At a meeting on Friday, Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia ordered the BBMP to fix the cameras right away. He also ordered immediate action against encroachments on the lake. Khuntia directed officials from the Urban Development Department, BBMP, Bangalore Development Authority, Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, Karnataka State Pollution Control Board and Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority to show results within two weeks.

The pursuit of development has led to the current global warming trend. It is a manmade planetary scale phenomenon. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), impacts of global warming are evident in the sea level rise, melting of polar icecaps and increase in extreme climate events.
