Acute water scarcity in Belgaum

10:17 AM Posted by ukmad

 Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Sewerage Board (KUWSSB) took a break for its annual maintenance work all of a sudden and for the fourth day in a row many parts of the city did not get any water.

KUWSSB was supplying water once in three days to the city barring the 24x7 wards, but even the 24x7 wards have been affected.

The annual maintenance is being carried out for pipeline repair works and patching the leakages at Hidkal.  Taking stock of this grave situation the private water suppliers are making swift money. They charged Rs. 500 for one tanker of water when the normal rate is between Rs. 350 and Rs. 400.

Hopefully, water supply would be restored by Saturday morning.

But the newly elected Mayor Yallpa Kurbar has shown his red signal to these sanctioned development works by sending a letter of non recommendation to Commissioner on May 14 asking not to go further with those works. 

All these allegations were made by Kiran Sayanak.

Old well now garbage spot

10:52 AM Posted by ukmad

Ground water levels are over the world is decreasing and Belgaum is no exception to it. Curently the Camp areas have no water supply for 3 days and the city areas are also getting very little supply.

 See the photo, an old well which must be older than 60 – 70 years in Kelkar Bag, next to Belgaum Bhavan is now a garbage point, where all the vegetable sellers have thrown the garbage and filled it up completely.

In fact many such cases exist in many areas in the city. The worst case I know is of the closure of the 12 pulleys well (Bara Ghadghdyache Vhir) which was in front of Kaveri Cold Drinks in Hutatma chowk which was closed in somewhere around 1966 when the Munciplaity water lines were being laid.

Water conservation is very important, now all new buildings have to have the rain water harvesting but what about these assets, those old wells if are given a rebirth can help overcome water shortage the city is facing.
