Citizens demand better management of resources 14.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Come summer, Bengalureans are most likely to face yet another water crisis, thanks to the numerous factors that have worked against the city. A city that had managed to meet its water demands with a smartly networked lake system now struggles to cope with the problem despite water supply from river Cauvery. How did this happen, how can we cope with the crisis? Citizens respond here in many voices. Prof Ramakrishnan, an ex-SBI employee and a visiting faculty for MBA at several colleges, has spent most of his life in the city. Water crisis, he says, is now synonymous with the city every summer. "The only difference each year is for how many months the problem lasts. For many years, there hasn't been a summer without a drought-like situation here," he says. The professor, to a great extent, holds the electricity and water management board responsible. "The management is extremely poor. They only talk big. Where the officials concerned in other states take steps on a war-footing, our officials are not at all ...

Averting another water crisis 14.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Another year and another summer water crisis looms large over Bengaluru. But as this vicious cycle repeats itself predictably, a grim reality remains a constant: A staggering 46% of the 1,380 MLD of Cauvery water pumped into the city is not accounted for. Water theft through unauthorised connections, that's the standard response from the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). But a bigger problem remains unaddressed: Distribution leakages due to old, worn out pipelines that were laid decades ago. The Board says it can tide over the summer shortage through water-rationing. Its confidence stems from the Irrigation department's assurance that adequate supply from the reservoirs can be maintained till May. But if the rains don't arrive in June, a crisis could unfold. The city's current water requirement is 1.58 tmcft every month. "Based on the inflow to the Krishnarajasagar and Kabini reservoirs, about 4 tmcftft should be available till May. We will be short of 2-3 tmcft," informs BWSSB's ...

Another feather in KSCA cap 4.1.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka State Cricket Association has been in the forefront of embracing latest technology in various fields and in keeping with that tradition, the association on Wednesday commissioned the subsurface aeration and vaccum-powered drainage project, which was undertaken last June. After installing solar panels to generate electricity, rain-water harvesting, sewage treatment plant, waste management, the KSCA has added another first to its credit. Touted as the first such facility to be installed in a cricket stadium in the world, the technology ensures the resumption of a match within a few minutes after it stops raining, by facilitating rapid drying of the ground.
