HYDERABAD: To check suicides at Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, the two major drinking water sources of the city, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) has put up chain link fence at these water bodies.

Osmansagar, also known as Gandipet, turns a picnic spot during weekends and draws huge crowd whenever the reservoir gets heavy inflows. The Water Board has developed gardens for people to enjoy their outing near the reservoir. As suicides at these water bodies were being reported regularly, the HMWS&SB decided to fence certain vulnerable spots at the two reservoirs.

Water Board officials claim they have no manpower to keep a vigil across the bund area of Osmansagar to prevent suicides. Though police personnel regularly patrol along the bund area/shore area, they have not been able to stop suicidal deaths.

At Osmansagar, around 20 suicides have been reported last year. "To prevent suicides, we have put up chain link fencing at identified areas like bund area and rock garden. For this, we have spent around Rs 20 lakh. We are planning to fence another garden," HMWS&SB deputy general manager, Osmansagar, G Ramakrishna said.

Similarly at Himayatsagar, 25 suicides have been reported last year. "First, we identified the vulnerable spots and sent proposals to higher authorities. Accordingly, the Water Board sanctioned Rs 20 lakh to put up the chain link fence. We have fenced an area of about 1.2 km length. We have also sent another proposal to put up a fence near the temple," HMWS&SB deputy general manager (E), Himayatsagar, Jan Shareef, told TOI.

When contacted, HMWS&SB chief general manager (Transmission) V Visweswaraiah said, "There is a proposal to put up police outposts to cover bund area and nearby areas of the two reservoirs. By next summer, the outposts will be set up."

Bandlaguda water woes to end soon

Quote:
The water woes of residents of Bandlaguda in Chandrayangutta Assembly constituency are going to end very soon.

The drinking water project undertaken by the HMWSSB here at a cost of Rs. 40 crore has been completed and if all goes well, water is set to be released soon.

As of now tap water remains a distant dream for the people staying in Noorinagar, Jahangirabad, Ghousenagar, Ahmednagar, Mohammednagar and Ismailnagar areas. These thickly populated colonies are inhabited mostly by the working class.

Water tankers from Aliabad and Mir Alam reservoirs make around fifty trips everyday to supply drinking water. Every family here has half a dozen barrels for storing water.

Yet people have complaints over the supply of water to their colonies through water tankers and borewells.

People also bring water from far off places like Chandrayangutta, Shamsheergunj and Mylardevpally in autos and motorcycles.

NETWORK WORKS

According to officials, the distribution network works along with other works have been completed and the lines tested.

The works are to be officially taken over by the technical wing of the Board paving way for release of water, it is said.

Two reservoirs one at Maisaram of five million litres (ML) capacity and another at Ghousenagar of 2ML capacity were completed long ago.

Population in these areas has grown considerably from the time the reservoirs were sanctioned in 2007 and so have the water crisis.

Ironically, though the water reservoir and distribution network are ready the Board is yet to start a new section in the area and appoint manager and support staff.

Source: The Hindu

It is confident of completing Godavari, Krishna Phase III drinking water projects by December 2013

  • Land acquisition for Godavari project being sorted out: J. Syamala Rao
  • Board has outstanding dues of Rs.725 crores, including 357 crore from the domestic sector

Hyderabadis can hope to get daily water supply in 2014. This follows Water Board’s confidence to complete the Godavari and Krishna Phase III drinking water projects by December 2013. The additional quantum of water will be sufficient not just for the core city but also for the peripheral areas till 2017.

The Godavari project estimated to cost Rs.3,725 crore is half way through with 50 percent of the 186 km pipeline laid. Tenders have been called for Krishna phase III and the last date for tender submission is October 10. “Soon after that we will ground the project,” said J. Syamala Rao, managing director, HMWSSB.

Land acquisition
He told presspersons here on Monday that the problem of land acquisition for the Godavari project was only to the extent of 12 km and was being sorted out. Clarifying the water position, he said only 287 mgd of the 340 mgd supplied was reliable as Osmansagar, Himayatsagar and Manjeera were no longer dependable.

“With poor inflows, the water position is not comfortable. But we will be able to maintain the present supplies till next monsoon,” Mr. Rao said.

Listing out measures to improve the Board’s revenue, he said cases would be slapped against defaulters and those who tamper with the supply line to get water illegally. Nearly 680 connections had been identified for disconnection and 4,000 of the two lakh defaulters served notices. Those who possess more than one connection would lose their legal connection too as a punishment.

The Board had outstanding dues of Rs.725 crores, including 357 crore from the domestic sector.

As against the monthly demand of Rs.35 crore, the Board was able to collect only Rs.30 crore. “Unless we improve our revenue position we will not be able to serve properly,” Mr. Rao said.

Filter beds
The Board proposed to replace the 14 km long open conduit from Osmansagar to Asifnagar filter beds with a closed pipeline at a cost of Rs.110 crore.

Phase I of the NRCD project for protection of Musi river was almost complete and phase II would be taken up at a cost of Rs.920 crore soon to treat 600 mld of sewerage going into the Musi.

To a question posed, Mr. Rao said that the Cantonment Board would be provided additional quantum of water if it cleared its dues of Rs.10 crore and connection charges of Rs.9 crore for the two off take points provided.

Presently, the Cantonment Board is being supplied 5.3 mgd.
So Phase-I of Musi Conservation is over and we have nothing to show for it

Hyderabad: Water woes to continue till next monsoon

Source: IBN Live

Quote:
Hyderabad: Despite showers in the last few weeks, the prospect of drinking water shortage still looms large over the twin cities. In fact, no less an official than the new managing director of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) J Syamala Rao indicated that citizens should brace for shortage of drinking water, off and on, till the next monsoon. “We will be able to manage with water available in the five reservoirs — Krishna, Singur, Manjira, Osmansagar and Himayatsagar — for the next few months, but there will be problems till the next monsoon arrives as the present water levels in the reservoirs are not very encouraging,’’ he admitted.

Speaking to the media here on Monday, Syamala Rao said of the 340 million gallons of water per day (MGD) supplied to consumers in Greater Hyderabad, about 287 MGD is from reliable sources like Krishna and Singur. The rest, from Osmansagar, Himayatsagar and Manjira, is not reliable as water level in these reservoirs has touched a new low, he pointed out.

The combined storage capacity of the five reservoirs, Krishna, Singur, Manjira, Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, is about 39.783 TMC. Presently (as of September 24), water in all these reservoirs is measured to be 14.638 TMC. Last year, on the same day, it was around 35.545 TMC. Consider these stats with the other important ones. The demand for water in Hyderabad is 475 MGD and the water board is able to supply only 340.

The proposed Phase-I of the Godavari Drinking Water Supply Scheme to bring 172 MGD from Yellampalli (Rs 3,725 crore) and Krishna Phase-III (Rs 1,670 crore) to tap 90 MGD from Akkampally, if completed as per the time frame, ie 2014, there is a possibility of overcoming the drinking water shortage and even the HMWS&SB can think of daily water supplies to water consumers in Greater Hyderabad limits in 2014, Syamala Rao said.
The managing director said the top priority of the board is collection of huge arrears from about two lakh defaulters who have to pay dues to the tune of Rs 725 crore. Of the Rs 725 crore, domestic consumers have to pay dues to the tune of Rs 357 crore, while Rs 367 crore has to be paid by bulk consumers, commercial and other non-domestic consumers.
The HMWS&SB has identified about two lakh consumers as defaulters who have not paid bills continuously for three months and more. In the first phase, the board has identified 4,000 top defaulters and slapped notices on them. The board will start disconnecting 680 connections from Monday and continue the process till all the defaulters clear their dues.
They also identified 2,600 persons having double connections which are illegal and a few thousand customers who changed the connection from half inch to 3 inch or one inch and drawing more water which is illegal and unauthorised. The board would book cases against such consumers under IPC Section 420, warned Syamala Rao.

According to him, if these unpaid water bills are measured in terms of water supplied, one could say of the 340 MGD water supplied, only 161 is being billed! “The remaining 170 MGD is unaccounted for water (almost 53 percent) which is a serious matter. This is due to illegal connections, water leakages, meter problems and others,” he said. There are about 7.90 lakh water customers in the city and the monthly revenue is Rs 59 crore but the collection is only about Rs 49 crore. Of this, the collection from domestic consumers is about Rs 19 crore as against the target of Rs 24 crore, while Rs 30 crore is collected from bulk and commercial consumers as against the target of Rs 35 crore.

The HMWS&SB has proposed to take up the Phase-II of Musi Cleaning and Conservation project under the National River Conservation Directorate (NRCD) for treating 600 MLD of sewage flowing into the Musi from various nalas at a cost of Rs 922 crore. The project report has been submitted to the Central Government for sanctioning of 70 percent and remaining 30 percent from the State Government.
