These guidelines by the Bureau of Indian Standards (1994) deal with the location, operation and maintenance of tube and borewells. Proper tubewell and borewell design, its construction and development considerably improves the long-term performance of the tubewell and reduces the chances of clogging of screen, sand content in water, contamination of water and other failures.

The guidelines were prepared by the BIS at the behest of the Drinking Water Mission, aims to consolidate the available technical information on design, construction, operation and maintenance of tubewell and borewells, chiefly from the wealth of practical, proven ideas contained in various Indian Standards and other publications from specialised agencies on the subject.
