I have a 380 feet borewell in my farm in Southern Tamil Nadu. This borewell currently has a yield of 3000 to 3600 litres per hour. The borewell was drilled in 2012 and a pump was installed a year ago in Feb 2016. The water from the borewell is a bit muddy but more of a pale white muddy mix (I have not tested the water and I do intend to test it) over the last 1 year.

I am a resident in Manthoppe Colony, Ashok Nagar Chennai, Tamil Nadu. We are an apartment building with 16 flats sharing water from a single underground sump. This sump gets water from the Chennai Metro Water. Due to water shoratage crisis in Chennai, we decided to clean the open well we had for abut 30 years and use the water along with Metro water. The open well is 30 feet in depth and 8 feet in diameter. It presently contains 12 feet of water from which atleast 3 feet of water is pumped out using a 1HP water pump into the underground sump twice per week.

I have a bore well which is 850 ft deep. If I switch it on in the morning, it gives me water for 45 minutes, and every now and then I have to keep checking the water flow. This is becoming problematic since morning time it is usually busy getting ready to office and making sure my kids are ready as well. I have observed that when the water flow decreases the Amps will be at 13, is it possible to install auto power cut off switch if Amps fall below 14? Any help on this will be very helpful to me.

Borewell (850 feet deep) water tastes like diesel. My neighbour's newly dug borewell is fine. I am searching for professional help to clean my borewell in Bangalore.

I did a Google search and found that the diesel smell could be due to iron, bacteria or sulfur.

I belong to Roorkee and i would like to find information regarding organisations working in rain water harvesting field in Uttarakhand. I want to develop a home based rain water harvesting system which can be used to quickly store rain water, maybe used for rejuvenating the underground water instead of collecting on the streets. There is a lot of talk about India promoting rain water harvesting but it is hard to find an organisation to do the work.

Right from day one the borewell water had a high level of iron content, and we have not been able to use it. We are not keen to instal equipments outside the borewell to minimise the iron content. A service provider suggested installing another bigger PVC pipe outside the bore pipe, to reduce iron content to some extent. Is this possible?? He is charging 30% more.
