Krishna river is an important source of irrigation for people in the state. The Almatti Dam across this mighty river, is an oasis with perfectly manicured gardens, writes B V Prakash. The Krishna river originates in the hills of Western ghats in Maharashtra and flows eastwards to merge with the Bay of Bengal. A large section of the river meanders through Karnataka and has been a perennial life-giver to the state, particularly to the arid regions of the northern parts. Besides irrigation, the fast flowing river has immense potential to generate some much-needed power. With a view of ensuring a regular supply of water to the districts of Gulbarga, Yadgir, Raichur, Bijapur and Bagalkot, an ambitious project was launched by the government through the Krishna Bhagya Jala Nigam Ltd, as early as 1994. Under the scheme called Upper Krishna Project, several dams were set up at strategic locations along the river. Among them, the Almatti Dam in Bagalkot district stands out as one of the major multi-purpose ...

People's problems 28.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Desilt clogged stormwater drain The drainage on 15th 'H' Cross in Muthyalanagar behind JPPark was desilted on June 26. However, the mud removed from the drainage was dumped on the road side and it has not been removed even to this day. Rain water has washed away this mud into the drainage, blocking the SWD.

Rains back, but brace for more water cuts in Mumbai 27.7.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
A spell of good rains on Sunday left the city drenched, but that was far from quenching its thirst. With the catchment areas continuing to receive subnormal rainfall, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is likely to inflict an additional water cut in a range of 5 per cent to 10 per cent. In a normal case, the BMC supplies 3,750 million litres daily (MLD) water to city as against the actual requirement of 4,200 MLD. But in view of poor rainfall, the civic body has been implementing 20 per cent cut in time slot for which it supplies water to domestic consumers. The corporation reduced water supply to recreational facilities and commercial establishments between 50 per cent and 100 per cent since July 17 as useful content across lakes continued to recede. The BMC is set to review the water situation by the month-end. But the current situation has left the corporation mulling over additional cuts.
