Concretization of the city
Bangalore City, also known as the City of Gardens, the City of Lakes, was once a busy town. But over the decades, the concrete has turned wild. The entire city’s land is concrete, not only because of the lack of space for water to flow smoothly during the rainy season, but also because the groundwater level has fallen to the ground without water.
Over the last two years, many concrete projects have been implemented in the city, including the bridge, the lower bridge, the tender Sure Road. Canals including sewage and Raja Canal are also being concreteized. There is ongoing work on converting 29 roads (92.51 km) into concrete roads to improve road quality. Already 35 km of concrete has been done. This leaves no room for water.
There is no doubt that in the next few years, the wells in the city are going down.
Groundwater level in Bangalore urban district has dropped by an average of 9.16 feet. This is because much of the land in Silicon City is covered with concrete. Experts say the development of the works is a major contributor to the groundwater collapse of the city, covering 78 per cent of the city’s surface.
Dry saplings, negligence of the authorities
Environmental lovers of the village have been outraged by the panchayat officials and the people’s representatives who noticed that the saplings brought to Shivagam in the village panchayat were drying up.
Sivagangai’s environmental lovers complain that today, the country, is becoming the anti-environmentalists of village panchayat officials and elected representatives of Sampur hobli.
At least one thousand different varieties of fruit plants have been supplied to each village panchayat by the World Forest Department and the World Forest Department on June 5th. They have demanded a remedy for the negligence of the superintendents who mowed the purpose.
Despite efforts to get a response on this, Grapam Development Officer Sunita and Panchayat President Hanumantaraju have not received a phone call.
The villagers allege that the government is spending billions each year to increase the number of herbivores and that millions of saplings have been raised and disposed of, but that the purpose of environmental protection is to destroy the saplings instead of planting them.
