BANGALORE: As many as 27 developed revenue layouts and business establishments around Nelamangala might continue to exist only if they establish water treatment plants as the sewage discharged in them might pollute the Arkavathy River.
According to the notices issued by the Nelamangala Planning Authority the buildings might be demolished and the land restored to its original form for agricultural purpose as they are formed in the catchment areas of Arkavathy River and violate the Master Plan-2009.
The Nelamangala Planning Authority has issued a notice in this regard. The authority has directed the owners of the properties to discontinue using these areas for residential purposes as they come in the catchment areas of Thippagondanahalli reservoir (TG Halli Dam). Some buildings have also been erected in these unauthorised layouts. The authority has also said that the construction of buildings on the land is in contravention of zonal regulations of the interim master plan.
The layouts and business establishments to which notices have been issued are Vighneshwara Layout, Chandrashekhar and Geetha Layout, Maruthi Layout, Somanna Layout, Bhyraveshwara Layout, Chamundeshwari Layout, Honnappa Stone Crushers, Venkateshwara Granites, ALVK Constructions, Raghavendra Tile Bricks, Pushpak Private Limited, Arjun Plywoods, Woods People Indica, Venkateshwara Stone Crushers, MBT Stone Crushers (three units), Balaji Enterprises, ABG Motar Limited, Tredemp Power Craft, Hyudal, RK Rural Godown, Godown Constructions, Amaraj Beets Limited and Relocks Footwear Limited.
A BWSSB official said, “The sewage generated from these layouts and business establishments will pollute Arkavathy river, which is the major source of water for Thippagondanahalli reservoir.
They can be permitted only if they instal tertiary water treatment plants as they will purify the sewage to a great extent.
The government notification issued in 2003 has classified the two km distance on both sides of the river from its banks as the catchment area of Arkavathy and has prohibited certain activities in that area. It has also named BWSSB and Nelamangala Planning Authority as the regulating authorities.
