Pettugodalu is a small village in Hukumpeta, a tribal mandal of Visakhapatnam District with 150 members. The village has 30 acres of the land, 100% dependent on rainfall. There is a stream passing at 200 feet distance to the land and at a depth of 70 feet where from June to January, water flows at 3 feet height. The villagers are ready to give half of acre of land for storing the water. But, the issue is that all the villagers are wage seekers, and cannot invest from their pockets. The panchayat has come forward to invest 10,000 rupees to bring the water to these 30 acres.

Our borewell depth is 1000 ft. I dropped a water hose upto the level of 990 feet, and used a 5HP high pressure compressor to pump the water out. Since only 10 feet is remaining to touch the bottom, is there a possibility of silt / mud gathering in jet pipe and blocking it? To avoid this situation how much gap do we need to keep between water hose and bottom of the borewell.

Thanks in advance,

Senthil
