I have an underground storage at my which is storing water recd from the pipeline of Municipal Corporation. I have installed electric motor for lifting water from the underground storage to overhead tank in my terrace. One morning I switched on the motor for lifting water and forgot to switch off the motor which kept on running for 3-4 hrs and the storage was empty long before. Suddenly I realized and switched off the motor. After few hours when i switched on the motor, it was running but water was not being lifted . What could be the problem ?

Dear IWP

Are there any strict action plans to stop factories which are polluting water by discharging chemicals, wastes into waterbodies?

A good beginning would be to publish details of polluting companies in all kind of media,inform the matter to  all three establishments, call peoples' attention to quit the products of these culprit companies.

Wishes,

Arun Ranganathan.

    • 90 trickle/light source
    • 100 water source
    • Motor-360
    • Water Level - 365
    • 367 - bore end

Initially we were informed by geologist that we have got atleast 6" water and there would be no shortage for water.Infact the drilling was not possible more that 367* [we were told total drill was 385 ft ]

We had no issues for 3 years even in hot summer! Now we no more get any water.
