Sewer floods Madiwala lake areas again 15.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Despite a separate enclosure constructed right next to the Madiwala lake to hold treated sewage water and flood water coming from Sarakki and Hulimavu, there was flooding in the areas around the Madiwala lake. The 12-feet-deep and 10-acre-wide space in the south of the lake, built by the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA), has served little purpose. According to the Forest department, which is the custodian of the Madiwala lake, the lake is not flooding. There is flooding in the adjoining areas such as Kodichikkanahalli, Bommanahalli and Hulimavu. "In fact, the Madiwala lake is nearly full to its brim and if the rainfall continues, then there could be a havoc. The new pond has four feet water and the lake has space for just one more feet of water," a forest department official said.

No proposal from state on Kalasa-Banduri, SC told 12.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Union government has told the Supreme Court that it has received no proposal from Karnataka for environmental clearance of the Kalasa-Banduri project. It has also not accorded any permission to Karnataka for the project so far, it said. The construction of the project in the ecologically-sensitive area of Western Ghats in the Mahadayi basin in Karnataka involved submergence of 258 hectares of forests. It was described as an "ecological bomb" by Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, for its "negative impact on the states ecology." Karnataka, for its part, said work on the project, meant to improve drinking water supply to the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad and the districts of Belagavi and Gadag, has almost been completed in 2014. "According to the records of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, no proposal has been received from Karnataka for scoping/environmental clearance," an affidavit filed by the ministry's officer said. "Carrying out any non-forestry activity on forest land ...
