Flowing into oblivion 28.5.2016 DNA: Top News
Mumbai's evident cultural history is more than 2,000 years old and the existence of its rivers, the Dahisar, Poisar, Oshiwara and Mithi (on Salsette Island alone) along with the smaller streams and rivulets, is even older. The island city then described as 'the city of seven islands' with hills, had its fair share of these natural monsoon water flows. What remains today are names like Pydhonie (meaning washing of feet), which marked the mouth of the first creek to be claimed, and Mahul. Back in time For ages, these rivers have flowed like any other river on the western coast – a trickle of a stream through most of the year, supporting a rich biodiversity. This then converts into a turbulent rapid carrying the eroded red soil from the vulnerable environments of the hilly forest, threatening and destroying all that comes in its path.

Revising its monsoon prediction, private weather forecaster Skymet has said rainfall this year will be 109 per cent of the long period average (LPA), up from the estimated 105 per cent last month. El Nino, the weather condition in the Pacific that impacts the South Asian monsoon, has ended, signalling hope for millions of people in India's 11 drought-hit states. But this will mean only momentary relief if the water is not conserved the proper way, say experts. In this scenario, rainwater harvesting, the age-old system of collection of rainwater for future use, has generated a lot of interest. But there are several misconceptions. It is not as simple as installing a tank on the ground level and storing water in it! A good rainwater harvesting system has to ...
