Unkindest cut of all: BWSSB digs up newly laid St Mark's Road footpath 28.5.2015 deccanherald.com
It can be termed the unkindest cut of all. The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has cut open the pavements laid under the TenderSURE project on St Mark's Road, before the stretch could be officially thrown open to the public. TenderSURE (Tender Specifications for Urban Road Execution), one of the costliest road infrastructure projects in the City, was taken up with a tall claim that the roads will not require any repair for the next 20 years. But it did not take long for the BWSSB crowbar to hit the pavement three days ago. The reason? When the BBMP began the project, it did not take the BWSSB along to remove the old sewage connections and link it with the new ones. This resulted in a leakage in the old pipeline and filthy water started spilling on to the street. When contacted, BWSSB chairperson Anjum Parvez said there were some 50-odd private connections which were not connected with the TenderSURE sewerage line. The TenderSURE road was dug up when the leakage was noticed. As usual, ...

As a first step to cleaning the highly polluted Yemalur lake (Amanikere) at Yemalur Kodi, around 1,000 litres of Effective Microbes (EM1) solution was sprayed on Thursday using a Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) vehicle. "The solution sprayed will help combat the odour and reduce the pollutants in the lake. We had sprayed the solution in Ulsoor lake and are doing the same on an experimental basis here. We plan to spray 3,500 litres of solution in two to three instalments," said Kiran P Kulkarni, Managing Director of Propertyloop, which along the CSR team of Titan organised the spraying.

The revenue department has already undertaken a survey to find out the extent of encroachments," he added. Yemalur lake falls under the jurisdiction of the BDA. Environmentalist ...
