Delhi: Ammonia leakage into water channel may lead to water crisis 16.1.2017 DNA: Top News
Water supply was severely affected in various parts of central and north Delhi on Sunday after dangerously high levels of ammonia was detected in non-processed water. The people in these areas will be dependent on water tankers for two days. Keshav Chandra, Chief Executive Officer at Delhi Jal Board (DJB) said, " Ammonia level of around four ppm was detected at Chandrawal and Wazirabad treatment plants, which seeped in due to a leakage in the carrier lined channel (CLC) that carries water from Haryana to Delhi. Following this, operations at these plants had to be suspended. He further said that it will take at least a day to restart the supply. "We would be able to release the water supply by tomorrow morning," Chandra said. DJB has also asked the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to check the quality of non-processed water samples. "The CLC leakage took place in Haryana and was shut down for repair work. The water that is being channeled now, comes from the main course of the river, where the ...

Citizens demand better management of resources 14.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Come summer, Bengalureans are most likely to face yet another water crisis, thanks to the numerous factors that have worked against the city. A city that had managed to meet its water demands with a smartly networked lake system now struggles to cope with the problem despite water supply from river Cauvery. How did this happen, how can we cope with the crisis? Citizens respond here in many voices. Prof Ramakrishnan, an ex-SBI employee and a visiting faculty for MBA at several colleges, has spent most of his life in the city. Water crisis, he says, is now synonymous with the city every summer. "The only difference each year is for how many months the problem lasts. For many years, there hasn't been a summer without a drought-like situation here," he says. The professor, to a great extent, holds the electricity and water management board responsible. "The management is extremely poor. They only talk big. Where the officials concerned in other states take steps on a war-footing, our officials are not at all ...

Averting another water crisis 14.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Another year and another summer water crisis looms large over Bengaluru. But as this vicious cycle repeats itself predictably, a grim reality remains a constant: A staggering 46% of the 1,380 MLD of Cauvery water pumped into the city is not accounted for. Water theft through unauthorised connections, that's the standard response from the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). But a bigger problem remains unaddressed: Distribution leakages due to old, worn out pipelines that were laid decades ago. The Board says it can tide over the summer shortage through water-rationing. Its confidence stems from the Irrigation department's assurance that adequate supply from the reservoirs can be maintained till May. But if the rains don't arrive in June, a crisis could unfold. The city's current water requirement is 1.58 tmcft every month. "Based on the inflow to the Krishnarajasagar and Kabini reservoirs, about 4 tmcftft should be available till May. We will be short of 2-3 tmcft," informs BWSSB's ...
