Nanduwali in east Rajasthan started flowing again when the villagers decided to work with nature and not against it. The river is now lifeline to those settled on her banks

Gajanand Sharma is excited about the monsoon this year. He is building an anicut on the small stream that runs through his farm. “After the rain, the land will be filled with water and then I will sow wheat and reap record production in this area,” he prophesises. This forecast doesn’t come from his knowledge of astrology, but that of geology, gained over the years.

Hello

We have 3 old wells. We want to clean them up internally such that the mud below is removed and the springs that are the source of the well gets recharged. One of the wells is giving a foul smell in the water and another one is giving a little salty water. Could you please guide me on this?

Also there is hardly any water left in 2 of the wells, we seem to have reached the bottom, there is barely 1 ft water in them. 

Thanks

Sachin

Kerala is blessed with high rainfall as well as plenty of natural water sources, but it has the lowest per capita share of freshwater resources in the country.

Kerala, flanked on the west by the Arabian Sea and on the east by the Western Ghats is bestowed with enviable natural resources. It has 44 rivers spanning its lush green landscape and rainfall that averages as high as 3000 mm a year. As one of the most densely populated states in the country, it has high indicators of health and social development, and its model for development has been hailed as an important indicator for other states to follow [1].

Water contains naturally occurring compounds such as lead and arsenic among others. How harmful are these and what is the level of contamination we are exposed to?

Both rural and urban India are faced with water problems. People do not have access to good quality, safe drinking water. The source for most drinking water is either rivers or underground aquifers (wells). Since water can dissolve just about anything that it comes into contact with long enough, often the groundwater we get isn’t pure.
