  • I am wondering whether the zeros in the precipitation data from 1901-2001 (http://www.indiawaterportal.org/met_data/) refer to missing values or whether the actual precipitations were zero? Thank you very much. Best, Barbora Sedova

  • We presently have BRIM media over coarse aggregate of sand and pebbles in a 200 litre drum.

Background: Our Flat is based in Tambaram, Chennai. There are 6 flats in an apartment. We share common overhead concrete tank. During summer we face acute water shortage problem. Even after starting the pump and it is running for half an hour, we won't get a drop of water. We are living in ground floor. Since there is lot of suffering especially on Sunday where all the members of family will be present and water needs will be more, I went inside the overhead tank to check what is wrong.

Hi, In my farming land I recently drilled a new bore well. It's got stuck and we are not able to lift it out with chain blocker. Bore well details Total Feet: 180 Casing Feet: 60 (6") Motor type: 3HP motor (4") connected Pipe: HDPE single pipe (150 feets) Motor pump is at 135 feets deep in bore well. Now on top of motor almost 50 feet mud fell. When we checked with thread it went up to 80 feet only. We checked with some bore well vendors who said with air pressure in the bore pump there may be a 50% chance only to pull out the motor pump from bore well.

We recently dug bore of 500 feet in Yercaud(TN).Initially there was no trace of water during drilling and found only rocks starting from 7 feet until we stopped the drilling at 500 feet.Later after few days,we just tried to check if any water was there by dropping stone and we could hear tickling sound of the water and then measured using rope and found water level of 120 feet(@380 feet).Since then we can notice stable water level of 120 feet(@380 feet) for the past 10 days .Now my query is if the water will be consistently at the same level ever?Or this is just a temporary phenomena.

We have a 250 KLD effluent treatment plant. The influent is high in starch content. The plant is a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) type with 2 aeration tanks of 110 KL capacity each. Visibly we do not see any biofilm growth on the media/plastic pellets in the aeration tanks. Also we are unable to achieve desirable reduction in BOD. We were planning to seed bacterial culture from a nearby working ETP plant into our ETP aeration tank. Can you please suggest a suitable volume of the seed culture/sludge we can add considering that the volume of the aeration tanks is 110 KL

I live in Chennai. Our borewell is not yielding water and many of my neighbors face the same issue. plumber suggested us to drill another borewell. We do not have space , as our first floor extends to cover the entire plot area, hence the only way which our plumber suggests is to drill hole in the roof in order for the drilling machine to fit. Is there any other option instead of drilling a hole in our roof? Appreciate the help.
