Rejuvenation of Talloor Lake – conservation of water in drought hit places

Rejuvenation of Talloor Lake – conservation of water in drought hit places

Ongoing Projects
This is an article written(Mooted by Shivanand Kalave and Radhakrishna Badathi both having selflessly worked for conservation) Why is it important for Yashomarga to take up the lake rejuvenation activity in Talloor ? Koppala district is known for getting hit by drought which has been the case for this year as well.

Such friction for water sharing surely exists between various states, districts and localities. The question of water sharing arises only when there is some water available in the water bodies. A day may come when all the water bodies will be lost and we will have nothing to share. India is the largest user of groundwater in the World, after China. More than 85% of drinking water and 60% of irrigated agriculture supplies are dependent on groundwater supply. Groundwater is preferred due to the low cost…

Drinking Water Supply to Drought Prone Villages

Drinking Water Supply to Drought Prone Villages

Completed Projects
Drinking water was supplied to 140 remote villages in the drought hit areas, on alternate days for a period of 2 months. Serious drought situation has arose in Karnataka during 2016 and continues. Such a situation was last seen during 1973. People of 12 districts had to struggle to get drinking water. Yashomarga Foundation undertook the task of supplying water to North Karnataka districts on alternative days. Under this project, 50 villages in Kalburgi and Raichur districts were supplied with drinking water in the first stage. In the second stage, 15 villages in Gadag, Raichur and Belagavi district were supplied with drinking water. In the third stage, the villages in Bidar, Yadgiri, Koppala and Bagalkote district were supplied with drinking water. This was the first major project undertaken by Yashomarga.…
