Harvest rainwater; avail discount in water bills 25.7.2014 deccanherald.com
In a move to increase the extent of water harvesting under the Mysore City Corporation (MCC) limits, the Standing Committee on Town Planning and Development would recommend provision of discounts in water bills for such residences. Moreover, officials of MCC, who have been lethargic in encouraging the implementation of the technique, have also been instructed to create awareness programmes about the same. At a meeting held here on Friday, M V Ramprasad, chairman of the Committee said that there were regulations which mandated that rain water harvesting be encouraged in all major cities of the country, so as to address water shortage issues. "Rather than making it compulsory for residents to set up mechanisms for harvesting, we will encourage them to do so by providing discounts in water bills," he said. The Committee will take up the proposal in the next Council meeting. Whether the Corporation can provide subsidies to implement the technique at residences, will also be discussed, he said.

Pay for every mistake 24.7.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Clouds gather, they titillate the senses and fill us with expectation, and then scatter. The monsoon is playing havoc with us, and when the skies occasionally open up, the downpour is devastating. We need the ongoing drizzle to permeate the soil and nourish it. It seems as though we are being punished for having been callous and irresponsible about water conservation and harvesting, and for having failed to value water, much the same way in which we disregarded many other warnings from nature. We are beginning to pay the price for not dealing with the problems that are real and will affect us all.
