MLA K B Koliwad, who heads the Legislature panel on lake encroachment in Bengaluru, has directed the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) to explain the circumstances under which the Bellandur wetland was allotted to a private builder instead of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to set up a sewage treatment plant (STP).

KSCA told to use treated sewage water for cricket pitches 21.4.2016 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has directed the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) to use recycled water from Cubbon Park wastewater treatment plant for non-potable purposes at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Following a High Court order, the BWSSB on Thursday convened a meeting with KSCA office-bearers to discuss ways to reduce wastage of potable water during matches. The water board chairman T M Vijay Bhaskar told Deccan Herald that the KSCA was asked to use recycled water from Cubbon Park through tankers. "The BWSSB usually supplies 17 lakh litres per month, while the demand increases to 21 lakh litres per month during cricket matches.

They are asked to use recycled water for cricket pitch until they set up an in-house Sewage Treatment Plant (STP)," he said. In March this year, the stadium, with 40,000 seating capacity, hosted seven matches including four warm-up games of ICC ...
