10k apartment dwellers in Bengaluru protest against mandatory STP rule 2.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
More than 8,000-10,000 residents from various apartments across the city on Saturday morning came together to protest against the rule making it mandatory for the apartments with more than 50 units to install Sewage Treatment Plants (STP). The rally was organised by Bangalore Apartment Federation (BAF), a federation of hundreds of apartments in Bengaluru. A long human chain was formed by the apartment dwellers of 173 apartment complexes in the city. "The older apartments do not have the design or strength to install STPs. Moreover, all these are already connected to the internal sewage system. Why are we being harassed to install STPs now? It is the job of the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to maintain the internal sewage system right," said Srikant Narasimhan, general secretary, Bangalore Apartments Federation. He also said that the civic agencies should engage with the people and the residents of the city to find solutions for these problems. BWSSB has issued notices to 1,043 ...

Apartments must instal STPs by Dec 31 or pay 25% fine: BWSSB 1.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Apartment complexes with 50 or more flats will be fined 25% of the water bill if they fail to instal sewage treatment plants by December 31. The penalty will be 50% if they do not instal STPs even after three months. BWSSB Chairman, Tushar Girinath, said notices had been issued to 1,043 apartment complexes to set up STPs, but most them had not fallen in line. The Bangalore Apartments Federation is protesting against the BWSSB decision on Saturday. Another senior official of the BWSSB said: "People bother only after we penalise them. But this is the only way this issue can be set right." Meanwhile, the board has clarified that people living in multi-storeyed buildings (ground plus two) that do not have occupancy certificates (OCs) must pay 50% of the monthly water bill as fine. Municipal corporation guidelines mandate OCs for multi-storeyed buildings. "Issuing OCs is the BBMPs job. We are just doing our job," the official said. The issue was raised at the BBMP councils monthly meeting on November ...

STP to be must for malls, hotels, hospitals 1.12.2017 deccanherald.com
It will soon be mandatory for malls, hotels and hospitals to install sewage treatment plants. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board says many such establishments fall under the red (most polluting) category, generating more than 100 kilo litres of liquid waste a day, and will have to comply with environmental regulations. The Provisional Revised Master Plan 2031, prepared by the Bangalore Development Authority, also recommends strict anti-pollution measures, board chairman Lakshman said. "We will insist on sewage and effluent treatment plants. We cant ask them to shift out of Bengaluru, but we will issue closure orders if they dont follow central pollution norms," he said. Businesses are not happy. They want the government to improve infrastructure before enforcing such rules. Veerendra N Kamat, Bruhat Bengaluru Hotels Association, said it would be difficult for old establishments to set up sewage treatment plants. "Star hotels can comply, but it wont be easy for smaller hotels," he said. In ...

Pipeline to Kolar chokes Varthur Lake 30.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Tons of debris and mud dumped right inside the canal linking Bellandur with Varthur lakes are a clear violation of the National Green Tribunal (NGT)s 75m buffer zone restrictions. But they have an official sanction: The Minor Irrigation departments pipeline project to take treated water from the city to Kolar. In Bellandur Ammanikere, adjacent to the new BWSSB Sewage Treatment Plants (STP), the dumping has reduced the canal to a narrow strip. Truckloads of debris and mud are being unloaded deep inside the canal boundary. While no attempt is made to clear the existing encroachments, the pipeline project could end up threatening the very existence of Varthur lake, warn lake experts. The project was conceived in 2015 to use Bengalurus treated sewage water to recharge the groundwater level in Kolar. The plan is to send the water to 121 parched tanks in Kolar and five in Chikkaballapur for agricultural use. Construction work had begun in July 2016, and the project is expected to be completed in 2018. The ...

Apartment residents to rally against civic agencies 29.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Hundreds of apartment complexes across the city are set to participate in a rally, which will serve as a platform for residents to voice their concerns with regard to civic agencies. The apartment rally will be organised by the Bangalore Apartments Federation (BAF) on Saturday. The BAF represents the interests of hundreds of apartment complexes across the city. R Balasubramanian, president of BAF, said, "Older apartments, constructed in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, which are not polluting the surroundings, have been mandated to install sewage treatment plants (STPs) retrospectively. This is impossible." He added that "with regard to apartments built since 2007, with properly functioning STPs, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board has been issuing notices that they should not let out even properly treated water, which is completely absurd". "In all these cases, apartment residents have been threatened with disconnection of power and water and initiation of criminal action despite being innocent, ...
