Mangalore: Effluent Treatment Plant Opens in Ullal

Quote:
Mangalore, Aug 2 (DHNS): The Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), an undertaking of the Fishmeal and Oil Manufactures Association (FOMA) was inaugurated by Karnataka State Pollution Control Board Chairman A S Sadashiviah at Kotepura in Ullal on Saturday.

Speaking on the occasion, he commended the work of Fishmeal and Oil Manufacturers Association and said that Mangalore has a CETP apart from Bangalore and Doddaballapur. The Common Effluent treatment plant in Ullal is second largest in the State next Bangalore.

Stating that there was a need to improve the way solid waste is disposed in Mangalore, he said the present system of solid waste management was inadequate and there should be a scientific way of disposal of garbage.

The landfill is being objected from those who are residing in the region. Fishmeal industries create pollution on the sea shore, creating problems to the people who reside on the shore. The pollution control board will provide all possible support in the future to set up such treatment plants.

The present plant can treat the water from 14 fish meal industries. The Kotepura plant will treat six lakh litres of effluent a day and this is designed to treat 30,000 litres per hour. The absence of common treatment plant had been a matter of concern in the region as people had to bear the stench from these fish meal industries.

He said “waste should be converted into wealth and used for producing energy like foreign countries. Singapore based company is working towards producing energy from the waste. He said that production of electricity from waste is successfully practiced in Salem and Pune. Similar initiatives should be taken up in Bangalore, Mangalore, Mysore in the future.”



As coastal eco system is very sensitive , there is a need to take precautionary measures to prevent oil spills on the coast, he added.

The Association members pooled in Rs 2.5 crore to set up the plant. MLA U T Khader, Association President M Shawkath Showry were present.

Amritanandamayi followers, college students clean railway station

Quote:

SPIC AND SPAN: Students of SDM Law College and volunteers of Amritanandamayi Trust cleaning the railway station in Mangalore on Sunday.

‘We must not wait for others to clean the public places'

The citizens of Mangalore, including 150 students of SDM Law College here and 25 followers of Mata Amritanandamayi, participated in “Amala Bharata”, a cleaning initiative, in the city on Sunday.

They cleaned the area in front of the Mangalore Central Railway Station till Wenlock Hospital.

Jeevaraj Sorake, past president, Mata Amritanadamayi Seva Samiti, told The Hindu that people must not wait for others to clean up public places such as bus-stands and toilets. Youth must participate in cleaning public places.

Dr. Sorake said that in India, unlike the West, personal hygiene was good but public places were unhygienic, creating an impression that Indians were not clean.

“We are ridiculed for it,” he said.

He said Indians called the country “motherland” yet people spit and threw garbage in public places. “We don't behave that way when we go abroad,” he said.

He said the station in-charge railway official joined the volunteers. Further, more spots within the station would be cleaned in the coming days. The garbage consisted of plastic cups, he said.

Sudhakar Rao, a working professional, who participated in the cleanliness drive, said the group cleaned the area from the Railway Station to Wenlock Hospital.

The maximum dirt was near the RMS office.
The Hindu

What is more important is proper waste disposal plan. Without dustbins and toilets a place (most of the time footpath) will become dirt in no time. Clean free toilets in every 300 meters (i.e. every busstop) is important. Otherwise autodrivers and others use footpath for everything. As I said earlier inspite of Khyberpass having toilet it is not used by many as they don't want to pay anything for using it.

City's new drains to be ready by April

Quote:

The ongoing work to lay the new 363-km sewer network with sewage treatment plants, wet wells, manholes, and pump houses in the city was expected to be over by April end next. It was taken up under the Asian Development Bank loan.

Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (KUIDFC) is implementing the project for Mangalore City Corporation under a scheme called Karnataka Urban Development and Coastal Environmental Management Project (KUDCEMP).

K.T. Maninarayana, Superintending Engineer, KUIDFC, Mangalore, told The Hindu that the new sewer networks criss-crossing the city had been laid to a length of 350 km, with only 13 km lines pending to be laid. He said that the new sewage treatment plants (STPs) at Jeppinamogaru with 20 MLD (million litres per day) processing capacity and at Surathkal having 16.75 MLD processing capacity were expected to be completed this year end.

The new STP at Kavoor with 43 MLD capacity had been completed and handed over to the Mangalore City Corporation.

The new STP at Pachchanady and a tertiary treatment plant at Pilikula having 8.75 MLD capacity were being operated on a trial basis now.

Mr. Maninarayana said that about 300 houses in Pachchanady area had been given house connections to the sewer network for operating the STP at Panchchanady on a trial basis.

He said of the 22 new wet wells, eight had been commissioned and the remaining were in various stages of completion. “All works will be completed by April end, 2012,” he said.

Mr. Maninarayana said that if all works were to be completed, the Southern Railway would have to clear five proposals relating to land issues. “They are in advanced stages of getting approvals,” he said.

Creating new sewage infrastructure, now at a cost of about Rs. 200 crore was not an easy task for the KUIDFC. Although works commenced in 2003, in reality it took off only in 2007 because of various issues. The corporation had to face some court cases relating to land acquisition. A case went up to the Supreme Court in which the corporation won. The government terminated the contracts of five major contractors in 2006 as they failed to perform. “Hence works actually began in 2007,” he said.

The Superintending Engineer said that geographical features of the land structure here were very tricky.

“Many places having loose soil with water and rock came in the way of laying the networks. A case in point is Malemar and Bangra Kulur areas,” he said.

The expertise of the National Institute of Technology – Karnataka, Surathkal, was used for resolving the problem, he said. In reality, the contractors got only four months of working from January to April as it rained for the remaining months, Mr. Maninarayana said.

He said that once all the works were completed, the contractors would have a year as defect liability period for rectifying the faults.

Mr. Maninarayana said that once all the works were completed, except in some dense areas like Kunjathbail, Baikampady, and Chitrapura, the other dense areas in the jurisdiction of the corporation would be covered with sewer networks. But 25 to 30 per cent of the areas in the limits of the corporation would be left out.

They were not thickly populated, he said.

MSEZ phase I needs bulk of water, not phase II

Quote:
Raviprasad Kamila

If you expected that the State government's denotification 1,998 acres of land to be acquired for Phase II of Mangalore Special Economic Zone Project will reduce quantity of water required for industries under the project to a great extent, you will be disappointed.

According to Ramachandra Bhandarkar, Public Relations Officer, Mangalore Special Economic Zone Ltd., total water required for the project, including phase I and phase II has been estimated at 45 MGD (million gallon a day). Of that 37 MGD is specifically required for phase I which is under progress. National Environment Engineering Institute, which conducted environment impact assessment study of the MSEZ in 2007-08, made the estimation, he says.

Mr. Bhandarkar says: “Phase I of the project is sector-specific for petrochemical industries which are typically water intensive industries. Hence the bulk of water demand pertains to Phase I.”

He says the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest in April 2008 approved the company to source 37 MGD of water for Phase I. Going by this, the post denotification demand for water by the project as a whole will come down by only about eight MGD.

He says that water demand (37 MGD) for Phase I is proposed to be met by building two barrages each across the Netravathi and the Gurupur, and treated water from three sewage treatment plants (STPs) of Mangalore City Corporation (MCC). He says the State Water Resources Department in 2007 had allowed the company to lift 15 MGD of water during 90 summer days from the two rivers. As there will be enough water in the rivers during non-summer months, sourcing 15 MGD of water will not be an issue.

Mr. Bhandarkar says 18 MGD of treated water can be sourced from three STPs – at Kavoor, Bajal (Jeppinamogaru), and Surathkal – of MCC. He says MSEZL and the MCC will form a company for the operation and maintenance of three STPs.

K.T. Maninarayana, Superintendent Engineer, Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (KUIDFC), Mangalore (who is in-charge for constructing STPs), says the three STPs, respectively, have the processing capacity of 9.6 MGD, 4.4 MGD, and 3.6 MGD water – a total of 17.6 MGD of water.

He says the STP at Kavoor has been completed while the rest will be completed by this December end.

Meanwhile, a September 17, 2007 order of the State Water Resources Department, a copy of which is with The Hindu, has permitted the MSEZ Ltd. to lift 15 MGD water (by constructing four barrages) from the two rivers up to five years from the date of the order.

According to it, the permission to lift water will expire in September 2012.

Mr. Bhandarkar says the company will apply for the renewal of the permission.

No policy on house connections

Quote:
Although new sewer infrastructure facilities in the city were expected to be ready in seven months, Mangalore City Corporation has not yet come out with a policy on providing house connection. Official machinery and councillors were not clear who should provide the house connection whether the civic body or house owners. KUIDFC authorities suggest that trained plumbers should provide the house connection. Otherwise manholes would be damaged. The corporation has not yet come out with a policy on maintaining the new infrastructure. There was ambiguity, said sources.

Salvation for road side garbage: Corporation project is ready




Link to a old report on "The Hindu" is below.

Bids invited for new solid waste management scheme
Bids invited for new solid waste management scheme


The city corporation wants to retain the 120 metallic solid waste bins even after implementing the three-package system in Mangalore.

I prefer to have waste collection sheds with parking facility for garbage trucks. The land can be acquired by TDR? TDR has to be made more attractive for creating other public facilities also. Premium TDR should be cancelled. Greenbuildings should have more TDR.

Incentive for top off on debris dumping increased to Rs.10000

Quote:
Those who tip the government about unauthorised debris dumping and those polluting water bodies will get cash reward of up to Rs. 10,000, according to Dakshina Kannada in-charge Minister J. Krishna Palemar.

On the sidelines of a meeting organised by the district administration with builders and engineers here on Monday, Mr. Palemar said people could pass on the information to his office.

Earlier, the incentive announced was Rs. 1,000 but a complaint had not been received.

A helpline would be announced soon for the purpose, he said.

When a press photographer informed Mr. Palemar that he had given to the Mangalore City Corporation authorities even photographs and video CDs of debris dumping in unauthorised places, the minister asked him to submit the details to his office.

Official wanted 24-hour water supply scheme under PPP model

Quote:
A strong case has been made by a bureaucrat for the implementation of round-the-clock water supply for the city even as elected representatives were not in favour of it.

The council of Mangalore City Corporation is yet to take a decision on the issue. The council postponed twice an agenda on the subject placed in its meetings.

But K.N. Vijay Prakash, who recently demitted office as the Commissioner of MCC, has written to Mayor Praveen a few days before his departure from the civic body and stated that the proposal was “in the interest of the corporation”.

Mr. Vijay Prakash in his letter of September 16, a copy of which is available with The Hindu, said that although the civic body did not know the exact quantity of “non-revenue water” supplied in the city, about 50 per cent of treated water supplied was not being “utilised properly”.

Mr. Vijay Prakash has handed over the charge to the new Commissioner on September 22.

LEAKAGE

He said that leakage in old water supply pipeline networks in the city had increased after new water supply pipes were laid under the Karnataka Urban Development and Coastal Environment Management Project (KUDCEMP) and connected to old networks. The letter said that at present water supply in the city was not managed scientifically for lack of trained technical staff and ineffective supervision of low-level staff.

The former Commissioner said that the present staff strength in the corporation was not enough for taking up “preventive maintenance” of water supply infrastructure facilities created under the KUDCEMP at a cost of Rs. 105 crore.

There was a need to have a proper operation and maintenance system to preserve the infrastructure facilities. Otherwise, there was a possibility of expensive electrical and machines getting damaged resulting in problems in water supply and revenue loss to the corporation.

The letter said that with the existing staff strength, it was not possible for the corporation to increase its water supply network and supply water round the clock to all 60 wards. Mr. Vijay Prakash said the corporation could ask the operator who would be selected for managing round-the-clock water supply to bear the complete investment required for it.

The letter has mentioned about the quantity of water now being supplied to the city, water required for each person, feasibility study for 24 X 7 done by an agency appointed by Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (KUIDFC), a study tour by a team led by Mayor to Hubli-Dharwad and meetings conducted to deliberate upon the proposal.

Meanwhile, to a question at a press conference here on Tuesday spokesperson of the district unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) K. Monappa Bhandary said the corporation would not go for 24 X 7 water supply under PPP model.

Instead, it would supply water round the clock on its own. The Mayor was present at the press conference.

TARIFF CONCERN

Chairperson of the Standing Committee for Town Planning and Improvement Premananda Shetty said that if the civic body adopted PPP model the minimum water tariff would go up to Rs. 178 up to 8,000 kilo litres. Now the corporation charged Rs. 65 up to 25,000 kilo litres.

But they were not clear why the council was not taking any decision on the proposal.

MCC to suspend water supply if Ullal civic body fails to clear dues in a week

Quote:
* Adequate time had been given to it to pay Rs. 1.6 crore: Mayor

The Council of Mangalore City Corporation in its meeting on Friday decided to suspend water supply to areas under the Ullal Town Municipality from Padil, unless the municipality paid Rs. 1.6 crore water bill due to the corporation in seven days.

But the Opposition Congress councillors told the Mayor Praveen that the decision was not fair. They said that the municipality might be facing some problems in paying the water bill the corporation. A final decision should be taken after consulting the municipality, they said. But the Mayor did not agree with them.

The Mayor said that the municipality had been given enough time to pay the dues. But it was not paid. There was no point in giving more time to it.

An agenda note on the subject placed at the meeting said that the corporation was supplying water to areas under the municipality since January 1, 2010. It had supplied 32,96,200 kilo litres of water till August 31, 2011 to it. Its total bill till August stood at Rs. 1.70 crore as Rs. five per a kilo litre. Earlier on December 28, 2010 the municipality had paid Rs. 10 lakh to the corporation as water bill. Hence the balance stood at Rs. 1.60 crore.

It said that earlier the corporation had written to the municipality on December 31, 2010 to pay the balance bill. Later the corporation council in its January 31, 2011 meeting had resolved that the corporation and the municipality should sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) according to which the municipality should be charged Rs. six per a kl of water. According to the proposed MoU, the municipality should pay the monthly bill regularly and also pay Rs. five lakh per month till it cleared the dues.

The Commissioner of the corporation on September 19, 2011 wrote to the municipality to sign the MoU with the former before September 30. The letter said that it would be given a deadline for paying the dues, if not the corporation would suspend water supply.

The agenda note said that the municipality had failed to respond to the letter from the Commissioner.

Former Mayor M. Shankar Bhat said that the municipality should pay at least half of the dues to the corporation in a week. Otherwise, the water supply should be suspended.

Streetlights

Councillors cutting across party lines told the Mayor that streetlight maintenance system in many areas was not proper. The Commissioner Harish Kumar said that he would look into it.

Leader of the Opposition in the council Lancelot Pinto opposed the move of the corporation to seek the help of builders to construct storm water drains and footpaths in the city. He said that when many builders have built buildings by violating rules and regulations, the corporation should not have sought their help. He questioned the Mayor for keeping away other councillors from the meeting he had with builders.

Corporation notice to clean environment

ಪರಿಸರ ಶುಚಿಗೊಳಿಸಲು ಪಾಲಿಕೆ ಸೂಚನೆ

ಮಂಗಳೂರು, ಸೆ. ೩೦: ಮನೆ ಆವರಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಬೆಳೆದಿರುವ ಹುಲ್ಲು ಪೊದೆಗಳನ್ನು ಶುಚಿಗೊಳಿಸುವಂತೆ ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಮಹಾನಗರ ಪಾಲಿಕೆ ಸೂಚಿಸಿದೆ.

ನಗರದ ಖಾಲಿ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಪರೀತ ಹುಲ್ಲುಗಳು ಪಸರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದು ಸಾಂಕ್ರಾಮಿಕ ರೋಗಗಳು ಹರಡುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಗಳಿವೆ ಎಂದು ಪಾಲಿಕೆ ಹೇಳಿದೆ.

ಸಾರ್ವಜನಿಕ ಆರೋಗ್ಯದ ಹಿತದೃಷ್ಟಿಯಿಂದ ಆಯಾ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳ ಮಾಲಕರೇ ಸ್ಥಳಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಬೆಳೆದಿರುವ ಹುಲ್ಲು ಪೊದೆಗಳನ್ನು ತೆಗೆಯಲು ತುರ್ತಾಗಿ ಕ್ರಮ ಕೈಗೊಂಡು ನಗರದ ನೈರ್ಮಲೀಕರಣದ ದೃಷ್ಟಿಯಿಂದ ಪಾಲಿಕೆಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಸಹಕರಿಸಬೇಕೆಂದು ಪಾಲಿಕೆ ಆಯುಕ್ತರು ಪ್ರಕಟಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

-- ಉದಯವಾಣಿ, ಅಕ್ಟೋಬರ್ ೧, ೨೦೧೧

The City Corporation has requested to dispose of grass and bushes in house premises. It has told that there are extra growth of grasses in many empty places and may spread diseases. The corporation has requested public to remove grass and bushes themselves.
-- Udayavani

In Bengaluru, the administration used to close lakes earlier giving reason that they spread infectious diseases by becoming dwelling places for mosquitoes. Later they changed their stand and started rebuilding lakes. For me, without having indept knowledge on this subject, grass and bushes seems to be a part of greenery having a contribution towards cleaning air. If grass is the reason for spread of diseases then why are they part of land scaping? Whether trimmed grass does not spread diseases? Whether trees do not spread diseases? In fact the corporation workers cut off grasses which people use for medicines also. On the other hand these workers do not care to cut branches of plants spreading out to footpath from compound walls hindering pedestrians movement.
