Air, water, and noise pollutions are the two biggest challenges of today’s civil society. Namma Bengaluru often appears in the list of most polluted cities of the country.
The Karnataka government formed the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to monitor and take corrective measures to control air, noise and water pollution. Let us find out how to monitor pollution in real time in Karnataka.
One of the initiatives taken up by the pollution control board to monitor the real-time air, water, and noise pollutions is setting up of the monitoring stations across the state.
Monitor Pollution Real-Time In Karnataka – Water Pollution
One of the biggest challenges faced by the state government is water pollution. All the major rivers of the state are polluted and the water is considered even unfit for farming purposes.
Keeping in mind the increasing water pollution, the KSPCB and Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) are launched two separate initiatives. Under these initiatives, the public can get a real-time pollution level.
Cauvery And Krishna Rivers Water Pollution Level
Two major rivers of the state are Cauvery and Krishna. Cauvery water is used as the drinking water for over 625 villages and six major towns including Mysuru and Bengaluru. Krishna is another major river of the state. It is considered as the lifeline of the North Karnataka region.
