Selected News from Local English Media 2 (16th Sept, 2011) a. 'We had neither the mindset nor the resources to build projects for flood control'
Times of India TNN | Sep 16, 2011, 11.46AM IS

Interview with a senior engineer Dr. Balabhadra Das Q) The current flood in the Mahanadi river system has sparked allegations that the disaster was manmade. Do you agree with such a view?

Bhubaneswar Editions of The Pioneer, The Times of India & The New Indian Express

Odisha Flood Alert

A) There is certainly some truth in it. The allegations might not be entirely correct, but to some extent the flood was manmade. The guidelines (known as Rule Curve) to regulate Hirakud reservoir say from September 1 to 17 the water level should be between 619 feet to 627 feet. Those managing the reservoir ought to also keep their experience, knowledge, weather forecast and other requirements in mind while regulating the water. Though the state government is technically right when it says it had kept the water level within prescribed limits, it failed in visualizing the situation. On September 6, the water level was 624 feet. Two days later it was 627.6 feet. My point is the government taking into account the high precipitation (300 to 400 mm) in the first week of September should have kept the water at a lower level, which could have led to better flood management. Q) There is also talk of Chhattisgarh releasing excess water into the Mahanadi upstream, triggering crisis for Orissa. Is that a reason for the high flood? A) We cannot blame Chhattisgarh. When Hirakud was built there was no reservoir in Chhattigarh. Of late, a number of reservoirs have come up in Mahanadi's upstream in Chhattisgarh. Those are primarily for irrigation purposes. Which means the authorities will fill up those when rains come; once it is full, the excess water will be released. There is no flood control aspect. What happened this time was a drought situation in parts of Orissa and Chhattisgarh due to paucity of rainfall in July and August. Hence, both states had stored water in their reservoirs for irrigation purposes, not anticipating heavy rains in September. So, it was only expected that Chhattisgarh would release excess water when heavy rains take place. The Orissa government should have realized this. There is no point blaming Chhattisgarh. In future also if a similar situation arises the same thing will occur. Q) What exactly should the government do to avert such crisis? A) The lesson we learnt this time is that if rain continues in the latter part of monsoon floods will come in Mahanadi. It is not a new lesson, but this flood has reiterated it. Nobody gave it a thought. Which is why, my argument is that the government lacked long term vision. The authorities simply kept the water level at Hirakud in the mid-zone of the Rule Curve. When the inflow into the dam was 10 lakh cusecs, an equal amount got released. There was non-application of mind. Q) Don't you agree that it is a tricky situation to release water from Hirakud anticipating a flood when there is drought situation is prevailing? A) I agree it is a double-edged sword. If the authorities would have released the water and rain not taken place in September, the people would have agitated demanding water for irrigation. That is true. But to deal with such situations, the government should understand that Hirakud has never fully controlled floods. The dam is now 54 years old and more than 25 per cent of it is silted. It should have accordingly regulated Hirakud waters, instead of just sticking to technicality. Q) Some individuals and civil society organizations have started pressing for revisiting the Rule Curve (developed in the eighties). Would it help? A) It has no meaning. Those making such demands would be better served by taking expert opinion. Flood water management is a complicated affair and changes in the Rule Curve won't help much. Rather, we have to think beyond Hirakud. How long can we depend on it? At best, the dam's life is for another 40 years. Q) Is desiltation of Hirakud an option?

Odisha Flood Alert

A) It is impractical, not possible. It's a vast reservoir, desilting it is a foolish idea. Nowhere has such an exercise been done. Q) What about a second dam on Mahanadi? A) That is also not feasible considering the human displacement it would involve. In the past, there were proposals for a second dam at Tikarpada. A storage reservoir was also planned at Manibhadra. Nothing happened. Reservoirs were also proposed on Tel, Ib and other tributaries of Mahanadi. But we have neglected such proposals and depended on Hirakud. We neither had the mindset nor the resources to build projects for flood control. Barring Hirakud and Rengali, all other projects are primarily for irrigation. The government is now working on constructing some storage reservoirs in some of the tributaries. But those will not solve the problem. Q) What then needs to be done to permanently tackle floods? A) We have damaged the delta ecology by bad engineering. We have built numerous roads, canals and ring bundhs without keeping space for ventilation. Consequently, channelized flow of water is no more taking place. A classic example is the Jagannath Sadak connecting Rameswar to Birapratappur in Khurda and Puri districts. Lack of ventilators has aggravated floods in the region this time. We have never given importance to drainage. No wonder water from Hirakud reaches Cuttack in 48 hours, but from Cuttack it takes 8-10 days to get into the sea. In Puri, it is much worse and takes weeks. The Chilika mouths are silted and reopening those will not help matters. I believe the only way out is to build direct outlets to the Bay of Bengal. A proposal to construct a 20-km canal from Gotha (confluence point of Daya, Bhargavi and Luna) to the sea has been hanging fire and can be given a thought. Q) Any other measure you think would help control floods? A) We are yet to formulate guidelines to regulate water flow at Naraj barrage. It is being done in a haphazard manner. During high floods, less amount of flood water comes to Mahanadi than Kathajodi. So we should put in place guidelines to evenly distribute the waters between the two rivers. This would lessen the damage, especially in Puri district. b. Relief and pain rain from the sky

Ashis Senapati, Times of India TNN | Sep 16, 2011, 09.18AM IST Kendrapada: Uma Satapathy (52) and his neighbours in a flood-hit Kendrapada village were starving for four days. When suddenly they heard the helicopter approaching. They knew food will be air-dropped. And these villagers of Jagannathpur in Garadapur block rushed towards the sound and gathered on dry land. When the packets started streaming from the sky, they scattered to collect them. During this time, a sack of flattened rice fell on Uma. Marooned, he could not be taken to a doctor. Some villagers shifted him to a cyclone shelter and gave him some medicines and food. A day after, his relatives managed to admit him in a Community Health Centre (CHC) at Patkura. "My sons and wife were hungry for three days. So I rushed for the food," Uma said. Subhashree of Jagadalpur village in the same block sustained serious head and neck injuries when a sackful of flattened rice and water pouches fell on her from the sky.

Odisha Flood Alert

The same fate awaited Deepak Sahoo (23) of Teramanapur village and Satrughan Tarei (34)of Balarampur in Jagatsinghpur's Kujang block. Deepak suffered head injuries and Satrughan was also hurt. "We have told people not to rush to the air-dropping sites. But many villagers tried to take as much as they could," Kendrapada collector P K Patnaik said. Another official said those injured will be taken care of. The former chairman of Mahakalapada block, Balaram Parida, complained, "In some marooned areas helicopter dropped food bags in the water. As a result, villagers did not get anything." But Trilochan Das of Garadapur had a word of appreciation for the government. "Though few persons were injured during air-dropping in the flood-hit areas, thousands were grateful to the authorities for arranging helicopters to drop food." c. Hasten restoration works: Naveen Express News Service Last Updated : 15 Sep 2011 12:20:35 PM IST BHUBANESWAR: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik asked the Works and Rural Development departments to prepare a master plan for speedy repair of damaged roads in the flood-affected areas of the State. As water has started receding from the flood-affected areas, Naveen directed the officials to start repair of breaches on a war footing. One breach was reported on Wednesday in Genguti river at Gadajit village in Jajpur district. Secretary in the Water Resources Department Suresh Mohapatra said during the flood there were 27 breaches in the Mahanadi river system, followed by 11 in the Paika, 10 in the Bramhani, eight in the Genguti, two in the Bhargavi, one each in the Daya, the Kushabhadra, the Kamei and the Rajua rivers. According to Rural Development Department sources, over 11,000 tube-wells were damaged in the flood, of which 4,072 have been disinfected and restored. Officials claimed that all the tube-wells in Bargarh and Sambalpur districts have been restored. Normalcy in water supply was restored in some areas of Sambalpur and Hirakud towns while it was resumed in Banki and Athagarh towns. However, fresh rains triggered by a low pressure compounded the plight of the marooned people in the flood-hit areas hampering relief operations. Airdropping of food packets continued in the affected areas of Kendrapara, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Cuttack, Boudh and Nayagarh districts, which continue to remain cut off even as the water receded. Air-dropping which had to be suspended in the forenoon due to bad weather and poor visibility resumed in the afternoon, said Chief Secretary Bijay Kumar Patnaik. About 1.9 lakh people have been evacuated from the low-lying areas to safer places in 13 affected districts. However, people taking shelter under makeshift structures on highways were affected as rains and thundershowers lashed several areas of Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Puri and Khurda districts on Wednesday. Revenue Minister Surjya Narayan Patro said 4,006 villages in 19 districts had been affected in the flood. Reports of damage of about 30,000 houses had been received from 11 districts and a detailed reports would be given by the district collectors soon after the flood water receded, he said. Officials said emergency health care services were being provided in the affected areas where around 400 medical relief centres had started operating.

About 110 mobile health units were also deployed. The focus is on disinfecting the water sources in the flood-affected areas where about 110 mobile health units have been deployed.

d. Menacing Mahanadi makes deep inroads Express News Service Last Updated: 16 Sep 2011 11:40:41 AM IST CUTTACK: The Mahanadi seems to have issued a stern warning to Cuttack this year. It has begun to advance menacingly towards the city, eating through bed area by around 100 metres to draw close to the Ring Embankment. A new and more expansive course appears to be charted along the Cuttack city region as the river pushing inland to widen its flow zone. The expansion of river girth has been most evident from Chahata Ghat to the water sports facility near Hadia Patha. The river has drawn close to the embankment by over 100 metres along the 5- km stretch. Such has been the force that it has deposited all the eroded bed a little farther to create a sand island. The island has come up in the vicinity of the upcoming Maritime Museum, close to the barrage. The high volume of the eroded soil and sand could not have been pushed through the barrage breakers and thus deposited nearby. The development has got the Water Resources Department to sit up and take note even though it seeks to dismiss the issue as a natural phenomenon during high flood. The Secretary of the Water Resources Department is scheduled to visit the stretch to take stock of the situation along the Ring Embankment in the next few days. A thorough study of the river behaviour and conditions is expected to follow to chart a strategy to prevent further ingression of the river course, Department sources said. Experts have attributed the situation to heavy siltation of the riverbed so much as to not sustain the huge volume of water flow during the floods along with uncontrolled and unplanned construction activities in the river bed zone as well as indiscriminate dumping of waste into the river. The river bed has risen substantially over the years due to lack of dredging and desiltation. The river has begun to push into the land from both sides. Not only that it is causing more flood ingress into the mainlands in areas upstream of the barrage. Breaches and submergence of more areas of Athagarh and Banki sub-divisions in this floods are an indication, irrigation department officials themselves have confessed. The construction of wide and expansive concrete barriers and walls of the intake well for supply of water through the pipeline of IOCL oil refinery project is also cited as reason for the changing course of the Mahanadi. The Irrigation Department officials have emphasised on desiltation of the river bed along Cuttack city. They also indicated towards increasing the length of the spur over which the water sports and amusement facility has come up. e. Air-dropping stopped, villages still cut-off Express News Service Last Updated : 16 Sep 2011 11:51:27 AM IST BHUBANESWAR: As moody weather played havoc with the people taking shelter on roads and embankments, the Government was on Thursday forced to stop air-dropping. Revenue Minister Surya Narayan Patro claimed air-dropping of food packets was stopped since most of the flood-hit villages are now accessible by road and water. But Energy Minister Atanu Sabyasachi Nayak disputed. It will take another couple of days to reach the villages cut off from the mainland, he said. In fact, contrary to the claims of the Revenue Minister, reports from Kendrapara, one of the worst-affected districts, said many villages in Marshaghai blocks are neither accessible by water nor road.

IAF officials said in Kolkata that rains and low clouds along with winds have hampered the food dropping by two MI helicopters pressed into service for past two days. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, who took stock of the situation, asked the officials to start restoration measures immediately. The Rural Development Department on Thursday claimed to have bridged 30 out of 469 breaches on 928 rural roads in 95 flood-affected blocks. The remaining breaches will be repaired as soon as the water recedes, Principal Secretary of the Department SN Tripathy said and added that it will cost Rs. 17 crore. Works Secretary Suvendu Ray said 258 roads of the department were damaged and 31 breaches have been reported so far. While 11 breaches have been bridged, another eight breaches will be mended within a day or two. Cross drainage system at 12 points was badly damaged and the restoration work will be taken up after water recedes. It has been estimated to cost Rs. 20 crore, he said. Non-availability of safe drinking water is most pressing problem in the flood-affected areas. While 285 pipe water supply systems were damaged by the floods, the Rural Development Department has restored 55 systems and disinfected 4,867 out of 13,402 submerged tube-wells. The Department has pressed 262 teams into service to disinfect the tube-wells, Tripathy said. The Water Resources Department has taken measures to close 49 breaches on different river embankments within the next two days, Special Revenue Commissioner Pradipta Mohapatra informed. Health Secretary Anu Garg said no major outbreak of disease has been reported. After visiting the flood-affected Delanga and Gop blocks of Puri district, she said the Gop health centre, which was flooded, will be made functional from Friday. While collectors of the affected districts have placed a demand for 5,400 tonnes of fodder, the Government has so far supplied 1,870 tonnes. The collectors were advised to procure husks available locally for cattle feed, said Fisheries and Animal Resources Development Secretary Satyabrat Sahu. f. Situation limping back to normal in flood-hit areas

The Pioneer Friday, 16 September 2011 00:03

PNS | Bhubaneswar With the situation limping back to normalcy in the flood affected area following the receding of waters, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday asked the District Collectors to complete the assessment of the damage by September 25 and distribution of the house damage assistance to the house owner by October 5 in the most transparent manner. Meanwhile, responding to the request by the State Government, the Prime Ministers Office informed that an inter-Ministerial team would visit the State within a weeks time to undertake assessment of the flood damage.

Patro said that each block would be provided `12,000 to procure one camera for the purpose of videography and still photo. It was decided that in order to avoid any favouritism , while one group of officials would undertake the enumeration and assessment of damaged house, another team would disburse house building assistance to the affected persons. The compensation in form of financial assistance would be provided to the actual beneficiary through Account Payee cheques he said. The Chief Minister also ordered for deployment of a senior officer not below the rank of Joint Secretary in each of the damaged flood affected block for coordination and monitoring in damage assessment and distribution of house building assistance. The assessments must be undertaken as per the guideline of the Relief Code, Patnaik said and cautioned that the Government would not compromise with mistakes in the assessment process.
