No UGD network, yet Whitefield residents levied sewerage charges 1.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Equipped with private sewage treatment plants (STPs), several housing complexes in Whitefield area under Mahadevapura zone of the BBMP had found ways to reuse the treated water. They had no link to an underground drainage (UGD) network. Yet, the Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) levies sanitary charges on them. How fair is that? This is the big question in everyone's mind, a collective worry articulated by the residents in a letter to the Board in September 2016. The Board is yet to respond, but the rationale behind the cost has stumped many. The sanitary charges, levied on all residents who use BWSSB's Cauvery water supply, are to account for the cost incurred by the Board to collect, treat and recycle the used water. The residents contend that this should then apply only to houses and apartments that release the waste water into the BWSSB UGD lines. The charges, which reflect on the monthly bills, are calculated at the rate of 25% of the overall water bill. A Whitefield Rising (WR) ...

Residents with STPs: Link them to underground drainage 24.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Thousands of Bengaluru's apartment dwellers are in a fix. Reason: Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) in February made it mandatory for all residential apartments with more than 20 units to build a sewage treatment plant (STP), so that the treated water may be "reused" for non-drinking purposes. The new rule has turned out to be a headache for many. However, the fact that almost a year has passed since the order was first brought out has given at least some residents time to cope with the situation. DH spoke to a few residents to understand their points of view. The most common complaint is that the government has been too quick to mandate STPs in apartments without showing any urgency in linking the treatment plants to the underground drainage system (UGD). Residents who have already set up the STPs find the going tough. Most residents are aware of the benefits that STPs promise. However, they want the BWSSB to understand the hardships the system has brought with it. To Sudhansu Mohanty, a ...

STP, retrospective burden 24.12.2016 deccanherald.com
BWSSB's order making Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) mandatory even for old apartments with over 20 units has left lakhs of Bengalureans in a quandary. Even as they complain of space crunch and the STP's high costs, penalties have begun to kick in. For decades, raw sewage flowed directly into the stormwater drains, heavily polluting the city's lakes. BWSSB set up Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) to stop this flow, but failed spectacularly. So how does forcing every old and new apartment with over 20 units to set up STPs trigger a dramatic shift? Pushed to a corner by the new rule, penalised for not complying, residents of existing apartments are in an agitated mood. Terming the rule impractical, costly and patently unfair, they want it to be withdrawn. Is there a way out? In January, the Department of Forest, Ecology and Environment had made it mandatory for sewage water to be reused at source. BWSSB was tasked with implementing this order, both with prospective and retrospective effect. Struggling to cope ...
