A proposal to divert the sewage water which was entering into a pit in the betel leaves farm (Yelethota) in Vidyaranyapuram, into the treatment plant, with an outlay of Rs. 2.1 crore has obtained the administrative nod from the Government, according to Mysore City Corporation (MCC) Commissioner P.G. Ramesh.

In this context, District Human Rights Cell Co-ordinator Prasanna had reportedly complained to the State Human Rights Commission, which in turn had sought a detailed report from the MCC Commissioner.

Yelethota has a natural pit which fills up during rains also drawing the sewage water. It is proposed to construct a few rain water storing ponds using CM’s special grant of Rs. 100 crore and divert the sewage water through pipes to the treatment plant for which the tender process would start once the estimate gets the government’s final approval, said Ramesh.
