Water supply being hit in Mysore

Quote:
The release of water from the Krishnarajasagar to Tamil Nadu and the steep fall in the reservoir levels, and also the fall in the Kabini reservoir levels, apart from frequent power cuts, has begun affecting water supply to Mysore. This has resulted in the Mysore City Corporation (MCC) asking consumers to take all steps to conserve water, particularly in view of the approaching summer season.

In an appeal today, the MCC commissioner said that the water levels in both Krishnarajasagar and Kabini, which supply water to Mysore, had fallen steeply. With the water table going down, yield from borewells too was affected. Besides, frequent power cuts had further affected water supply. As a result, problems were being faced in the distribution of water.

However, he said, all precautionary measures had been taken to see that there would not be any problem in the supply of water to Mysore during summer months. Against the background of the situation, however, it was necessary that consumers too take all steps to see water was not wasted in any manner.

'Release of water from KRS will hit Mysore severely'

Quote:
If water is released from KRS dam, water supply to Mysore will be hit severely, M Lakshmana, an activist, said here on Wednesday, demanding the deputy commissioner to hold an emergency meeting to discuss this.

According to the statistics collected by him from the Cauvery Neeravari Nigam office, the water level at KRS stood at 80.28 feet as on February 12, against the maximum of 124.8ft.

The usable quantity of water available from 80ft to 60ft is 4.401TMC. As per Supreme Court's direction, the quantity of water to be released to Tamil Nadu is 2.44TMC. However, the state will have to release 3.44TMC of water for Mettur to receive 2.44TMC of water. This will leave behind 0.961TMC (11,051 cusecs) for Karnataka.

Lakshmana pointed out that the remaining quantity of water can be used for only a week as the daily drinking water requirement for Bangalore alone is 1,800cusec. Mysore needs 125 cusec, 200cusec for Mandya district, 300cusec for Ramanagara and Chamarajnagar districts, and 300 cusecs for cattle everyday. Also, water can be drawn only up to 60 feet. The release of dead storage water (below 60ft) will affect the dam's safety. It might lead to cracks and which can cause the dam to breach when it is full.

Calling it a political conspiracy of the BJP, AIADMK and JD(S), Lakshman said advocates representing the state government have failed to make a strong case. They have included the dead storage level while presenting the water level at KRS and Kabini reservoirs.

He complained that the minister for water resources and district in-charge minister are yet to visit the dams. "This shows their negligence towards the water crisis. The chief minister listens to the words of Nariman when it should be the other way around," he added.

Speaking to TOI, Vani Vilas Water Supply Board chief engineer Subramaniyam, refuted Lakshmana's claims saying there was no water crisis in the city. Water is supplied for three hours everyday.

Cauvery Neeravari Nigam statistics of KRS dam as on January 1, 2013 -

Reservoir level: 82.80 (in feet)

Storage below MDDL (in TMC): 8.379

Storage below irrigational sluice level (in TMC): 4.401

On February 12, 2013

Reservoir level: 80.28

Storage below MDDL (in TMC): 8.379

MCC plans to convert animal waste to livestock feed

Quote:
Officers delegation to visit Davangere to take a look of existing unit

If all goes according to the plans, Mysore will be producing livestock feed from animal waste.Proposed in the recently tabled budget for the year 2013-14, Mysore City Corporation is mulling over establishing a Protein Meal Unit in the city at an estimated cost of Rs one crore.

Before embarking on the project, a delegation of officers from the city corporation is likely to visit Davangere on February 18 where a similar facility is in existence.

Veterinary officer Dr Lingaraj told Deccan Herald, this follows a proposal from Broiler Traders Coordinating Committee (BTCC). Apart from Davangere, Chikkamagalur also has such units.

In the wake of increasing chicken waste owing to skin out, bone and skin find place in refuse at the chicken stalls in the corporation limits. Such waste are rich in protein (five to 10 per cent) and could be used to manufacture by-products like biscuits and layers to feed live stock; dog, cats, cattle and others.

It can also be mixed with poultry feed.It would be advantageous for the local body in dealing with waste and also stray dog bites. Most importantly, it will generate employment opportunities. According to the veterinarian, stray dogs turn aggressive after feeding on chicken waste mixed with solid waste and go on a biting spree.

In the existing set up, the corporation has a dedicated system to collect chicken and mutton waste from nearly two years. The auto tippers collecting such waste earlier, have now been replaced with six goods autorickshaws (Tata Ace) and a canter van.

According to the available information, there are 625 chicken stalls in the city accounting for three to four tonnes of waste per day. Devaraja, Mandi and Vani Vilas markets too generate one to two tonnes of waste taking the total to six tonnes.

The vehicles on the waste collection job, collect the refuse once or twice in a day and dispose the same in MCC owned land at Kesare on the outskirts for deep pit burial.

To keep a track on the system, GPS is fitted to the vehicles. The city corporation also has the data base of the shops, owners and their cellphone numbers.

The stalls also have been provided with the contact numbers to complain in case of dereliction of duty on part of the vehicle drivers. The veterinarian said, now with the streamlining of the waste collection, the proposed meal unit will be supplied the waste, instead of going for deep burial.

Quote:
MCC Commissioner P.G. Ramesh is seen distributing handbills to the residents asHealth Officer Dr. Nagaraj and Let’s Do It! Mysore volunteers look on.

Mysore, Feb. 18 - About 1,000 volunteers of Let's Do It! Mysore undertook a door-to-door campaign in Lashkar Mohalla, N.R. Mohalla and nearby areas in city yesterday to spread awareness on waste management with stress on segregation at source.

The campaign was launched by Mysore City Corporation (MCC) Commissioner P.G. Ramesh. Health Officer Dr. Nagaraj and environmental engineers were present.

The volunteers briefed every household on the necessity of segregation of wet and dry waste at source and ill-effects of usage of plastic.

Informative handbills on the subject were distributed among the residents.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramesh announced that from Feb. 24 onwards, MCC in association with Let's Do It! Mysore would distribute two dustbins (red and green), sponsored by various companies, to every house in city for segregating and collecting wet and dry waste.

He hoped that the residents would co-operate and make the mission to thoroughly clean the city feasible.

JUSCO’S LAPSE: FINED RS. 7 CR.

Quote:
The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) today took to task the officials of Jamshedpur Utilities and Services Company (JUSCO) at a meeting and imposed a penalty of Rs. 7 crore for various lapses in the 24X7 water supply project to the city.

As per the tri-partite agreement made by Karnataka State Urban Water Supply & Sewerage Board (KUWSSB) with MCC and JUSCO, JUSCO was supposed to provide 24x7 water supply to city in six years. It is a six-year Performance Based Management Contract signed on Nov. 28, 2008.

The entire project is worth Rs. 194 crore, of which JUSCO will be paid Rs. 131 crore and the rest will be paid to Nagarjuna Constructions Ltd. which constructed overhead water tanks and related works.

Out of the Rs. 61 crore paid to JUSCO so far, Rs. 2 crore has been withheld as penalty while the remaining Rs. 5 crore will be recovered subsequently, said the officials.

Heated arguments ensued in today’s meeting held at the MCC Commissioner’s office, chaired by Deputy Commissioner Dr. K.S. Ramegowda. The DC took strong exception over the way of functioning of JUSCO, not meeting the target and not being able to provide services as per the agreement, since the past four years. He also warned of imposing penalty for the lapses.

KUWSSB Executive Engineer Subbe Gowda read out a list of allegations against the JUSCO, pointing out their shortfalls. “Out of the 1,74,000 water tap connections to be provided in city, only 9,000 have been made, which is barely 30% of the target,” he said and added that 24x7 water was being provided only to two wards – Ward. No. 5 and 36, Saraswathipuram area.

“We are spending crores of rupees on water purification. But the JUSCO officials are wasting precious water by not providing tap connections and meters,” he said and accused them of lack of supervision. He also accused the JUSCO officials of not collecting water taxes from the residents and not even issuing bills to the consumers. “The officials do not even attend meetings and when questioned, they point towards Jamshedpur (to their higher-ups at the company’s headquarters),” he said.

JUSCO in-charge for Mysore, Nandeesh said that his company was only supposed to provide 1,35,000 connections and not 1,74,000. “You people are making baseless allegations without studying the agreement fully, which is still open,” he argued and said that 24x7 water cannot be given now as many more taps are to be installed.

To this, the MCC Commisisoner P.G. Ramesh, who presided over the meeting after the DC’s departure, said, “Don’t try to give lame excuses and don’t try to mislead the officials. It is your duty to fix the taps, install meters and collect revenue.”

Later, it was decided to hold a meeting with JUSCO DGM on Saturday, Feb. 23 and on Feb. 27, convene a State-level technical committee meeting to discuss the water supply projects.

Pipeline project delay: Water leaks in Mysore

Quote:
At a time when the water crisis is going from bad to worse, a 24/7 water project worth Rs 194 crore, taken up under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) to remodel the water pipeline network in Mysore, could have given a respite to the city population by plugging atleast half of the 40 percent water leakages (unaccounted for water).

But JUSCO a private agency which has taken up the project and was supposed to replace the pipeline network by January this year, has so far completed only 50 percent of the work. JUSCO is supposed to replace pipelines for over 1.6 lakh water connections utilising Rs 131 crore but has been able to replace pipelines for only 80,000 connections. The project which began in January 2009, was supposed to be completed by January 2012.

The pipeline network in Mysore, was laid down during the reign of the Maharajas in 1896, when the Vanivilas water works came into existence. It then supplied 4 lakhs gallons per day to the population numbering 50,000.

It was then decided to replace and remodel the water supply network at a cost of Rs 194 crore by replacing 1,709 km of pipes which have been laid phase wise, along with 280 km of old pipelines laid a century ago.

Water supply to Mysore will not be hit, says minister

Quote:
The water supply will not be hit even though water levels at the Krishnarajsagar dan Kabini dams are low, district minister S A Ramdas said on Friday but admitted that water rationing can be imposed in June.

As of now there is 4.3 tmcft water at KRS and 3.65 tmcft at Kabini dam, which is mainly dead storage.

Mysore is getting 135 cusecs daily from KRS as against 600 cusecs released to Bangalore.

Given the outflow and the availability, water supply to Mysore will not affected, at least till end of May, the minister said after reviewing the water situation with the officials.

He said the water can be drawn from Kabini dam till June without damaging the dam's structure.

The water level at KRS dam is 71.41 ft (maximum if 124.80 ft) and there is 4.3 tmcft available. The water supply can sustain Mysore's needs till May end and we are not planning impose water rationing as of now, he told reporters.

As of now, the city is getting 90 million liters per day (MLD) from Honghalli pumping unit and 67 MLD from Melapura.

The authorities are planning to create a check dam at Melapura pumping unit to ensure availability of the resource.

Ramdas said 1,495 borewells in the city are functioning and generating 4 MLD.

He, however, was critical of JUSCO, the Tata enterprise which is implementing JNNURM project to remodel water distribution network.

JUSCO is not responding to the people's complaints, he stated asserting that the Mysore City Corporation will press 15 tankers to supply water to pockets in the city where water supply has become irregular.

19700 bags of waste in four hours!

Quote:
Let’s do it Mysore, a campaign launched to rid the city of waste on Sunday, concluded on a successful note, collecting 19,784 bags of waste — nearly 200 loads.

The campaign, flagged off by medical education and district in-charge minister S A Ramdas, bishop of Mysore Thomas Antony Vazhapilly along with deputy commissioner Ramegowda, Narasimharaja MLA Tanveer Sait among other dignitaries in front of Kote Anjaneya Swamy temple, witnessed 31,890 volunteers simultaneously involved in the job in 65 wards of the city.

S V Venkatesh, one of the facilitators of the campaign, told Deccan Herald, though the campaign lasted nearly four hours beginning from 6.45 am, the task was accomplished without any glitches. It has set the tone for sustainability, to plan a similar exercise in a week or two.

Taking care of every minute details, two mobile call centres (facilitators on phone) were arranged to gather data and alert the volunteers. The volunteers — 18,730 men and 12,160 women, dressed in white t-shirts, hand gloves and masks given by the organisers — went around the allotted areas, collecting waste. The volunteers were a mix of young and old, representing 82 companies, 30 clubs and organisations and 37 educational institutions. There were engineering, MBA and other students.

Venkatesh said as many as 60 lorries and tractors, arranged by lorry owners association, for the day helped transport the waste. In all 191 vehicle trips were conducted to load and unload the bags at MCC owned excel plant at Sewage Farm in Vidyaranyapuram.

Newly-elected corporators too extended their support for the initiative, by actively taking part in it.

Apart from Mysore, volunteers representing organisations in Mandya and Hunsur too enthusiastically participated in the campaign.

A Jain organisation had arranged breakfast for 2,500 pourakarmikas. A total of 10 ambulances, sponsored by respective hospitals, were stationed in nine wards to tend to emergencies, if any.

Unscientific techniques irk minister, DC

Quote:
Waste management: Disposal methods followed in bio-medical waste unit against norms

Medical education and district in-charge minister S A Ramdas was shocked to see the plight of a private bio-medical waste management unit, which is disposing garbage unscientifically.

The minister conducted a surprise visit, along with deputy commissioner Ramegowda and Mysore City Corporation (MCC) officials, to the unit. He was taken aback to find not more than three workers, with no supervisors, on the spot. Sree Consultants, the bio-medical waste management plant, operating since eight years at Varuna near Mysore, was found to take no measures to dispose garbage scientifically. The raid was conducted by the minister, following a tip-off from a few hospitals and clinics.

He enquired the labourers about segregation, who said they were not aware of any such procedure and all the waste collected in plastic bags were dumped into the furnaces directly. Bottles, plastic, cotton, sanitary napkins and other items were not segregated before burning.

DC Ramegowda, meanwhile, contacted environment officer P Niranjan of the Karnataka State Pollution Board regional office, who said the unit was not following the procedures and he too had received complaints in the regard. Speaking to press persons, Ramegowda said strict action will be taken against the unit. He said, general waste should be segregated from medical waste and then burnt. But the procedures were not followed at Sree Consultants.

Minister Ramdas said, complaints had been received from hospitals and clinics that the waste had not been collected regularly. He said, from April 1, every hospital and clinic should maintain records on when the waste has been collected by the agency.

Action

Action will be taken within 24 hours and notice will be issued to the unit, if found guilty, he added.

Earlier, the minister visited the new waste management unit under construction near Kesre and charged the officials of MCC for not taking appropriate measures to dispose waste properly.

The unit, set up under JNNURM funds on a five acre plot, will have modern segregation techniques to further divide garbage into degradable, non-degradable, wet waste and poultry waste.

The unit has been planned as the present sewage farm excel plant, near J P Nagar, has a capacity to dispose only 200 tonne, while the city generates nearly 400 tonne garbage every day.

Wet waste will be used to produce manure, while non-degradable waste will be burnt. A bio-gas and electricity production unit is also being planned on the site.

Mysore does it, collects 191 lorries of garbage

Quote:


Over 30,000 citizens of Mysore from different walks of life came together on Sunday to be part of the “Let’s do it!” movement and cleaned up the entire city in just four to five hours. Surprisingly, by noon, they managed to collect 191 truckloads of garbage strewn all across the city including the roads and open spaces.

The volunteers went about the task by forming 650 clusters in the 65 Corporation wards. The campaign comes in the light of the failure of solid waste management efforts in Benga*luru, and to prevent a repeat of such a mess in Mysore, which is a popular tourism destination.

The wet and dry waste was picked by lorries of Mysore rural lorry owners’ association and handed over to the solid waste management plant of MCC near Sewage Farm.

More than 30,000 Mysoreans including students from almost all colleges, NGOs, industry and various associations came together to join the “Let’s do it!” movement on Sunday and cleaned up the entire city in just four to five hours.



“Let’s do it!” Mysore is a movement inspired by ‘Let’s do it World’ and was launched recently to bring all Mysoreans together and clean up the city in one day, bring a sense of civic consciousness among Mysoreans on what each one of them can do individually to keep the city clean.

The objective: to make Mysore the cleanest city in the country from what it is now—the second cleanest.
As many as 31,890 registered volunteers including 18,730 men and 12,160 women volunteers apart from thousands who joined later without the spot registration, succeeded in collecting 191 lorries of garbage thrown on the streets, open sites and open spaces.

Mysore has four assembly constituencies, nine corporation zones and 65 wards, The Let’s do it Mysore team divided each ward into ten clusters forming a total 650 clusters. Students from seven engineering colleges, 30 graduate and diploma colleges, medical and dental colleges, more than 100 industries including Infosys, WIPRO, BEML and others, various NGOs including Rotary, Inner Wheel, and several associations including Mys*ore IT forum, Mys*ore Chamber of Indust*ries and Comm*erce, Travel agents association, lorry owners association, drivers’ association and the public joi*ned together at assembly points anno*unced in advance for the mega cleanliness drive. A hel*pline which was man*ned by engineering and MBA students from 5.30 am was also available.

After the formal launch of the cleanliness drive, by district in-charge minister S.A. Ramadas, MLA Tanveer Sait, religious leaders Mummadi Madival Swamiji, Bishop Thomas Vazapilly and Sir Khazi Alhaz Usman Shariff Saheb in front of Mysore Palace, volunteers carried out the campaign till 12noon. They collected wet and dry waste in different covers and all the waste collected was picked by lorries of Mysore rural lorry owners’ association and handed over to the solid waste management plant of MCC near Sewage Farm.

Alarmed by the recent failure of solid waste management in Bengaluru, a few well-wishers of the city came up with the idea to prevent a repeat in Mysore, which is fast growing as a tourism hub and an alternative city to Bengaluru. “Cleaning up of the entire city on Sunday is just a beginning, we have several such programmes planned to make Mysore the cleanest city,” said, Mysore Tourism Forum head, Prashanth B.S.

MCC asks residents to segregate garbage at source

Quote:
A day after the young and old rolled up their sleeves to clean-up the city with their novel 'Let's do it Mysore' campaign, the Mysore City Corporation authorities are planning to rope in its participants to join the civic body in managing waste. They want the participants to start segregating waste at their homes and help the MCC.

MCC health officer Dr D G Nagaraj said he appreciates the enthusiasm shown by 31,890 persons in their unique campaign, which was a successful effort. "But now we request all these participants to join hands with us and start segregating waste at the source. This will help MCC in managing solid waste in a better way," he said.

The MCC wants them to begin at their homes by separating kitchen, dry and biomedical wastes and give it separately to the garbage collectors. "If these participants cooperate with the MCC, we will reserve a day in a week to collect only dry waste like paper, plastic and cover, and kitchen waste on daily basis. One can keep dry waste, which won't decay, for a few days and this reduces the burden on the MCC for segregating waste," he suggested.

To a query, Nagaraj said Mysore city has nearly two lakh households and only a few of them have showed interest in segregating waste at the source. But this won't help the civic body unless at least half of the ward residents joined hands with the MCC.

He also added that MCC was willing to join hands with NGOs or voluntary groups to keep the city clean. "We are already running zero waste management centres in association with women self-help groups," he pointed out.
