Dear All,

I have a property in Madipakkam, Chennai. I drilled borewell in the year 2000 in my property at about 200 ft. From that time till now, I am getting only one bucket of water, approximately equivalent to 50 litres per day till now.

I feel that this is very low and so am thinking of reinspecting the bore. I would like to know if borewell endoscopy using a camera will give me a clear picture of what the problem is.  Could anyone please be able to recommen a good vendor for borewell endoscopy with a camera at Chennai?

Regards

Arunan

Hello

My home was constructed in the year 2000 having only ground floor (2BHK) so I planned for a septic tank for black water and soak pit for grey water. in 2008, I have constructed the first floor (3 BHK) in which I stay. During that construction, we have not made any change in septic tank and soak pit.

'Eris' and 'ooranis', which are tanks that supplied water for generations in Tamil Nadu, are being revived thanks to monetary donations, good management practices and community participation.

Tamilnadu has a rich tradition of tank management at the village level. Every village had one or more irrigation tanks, locally known as ‘kanmais’ or ‘eris’, and a drinking water tank called ‘ooranis’. This system worked for centuries with the support of residents and the local administration. Endowments, which are nothing but donations given to groups of individuals to accomplish a set of tasks, played an important role in sustaining this ecosystem.

Twenty years of hard work and devotion has made Kalaivani from Vellitiruppur, Tamil Nadu a celebrity of sorts in the organic farming circles in Erode district and beyond.

Kalaivani, a single mother of three, took to farming after the loss of her husband almost two decades ago. Since then, she has grown all the crops on her farm without using chemical or synthetic pesticides or fertilisers. Over the last few years, she has focused her time and energy in growing organic cotton.
