We had dug a borewell in February and it yielded water. But we did not use the borewell for 6 months and now the bore well has dried up ( even after the rains of July). Is there a possibility to revive the borewell?

I am having unused borewell of depth 350 feet and 8inches dia. We left the borewell unused for more than 10 years for less water & drought. And surrounding water table gone up to 500 feet, 600 feet, 700 feet deep. Suddenly we checked the borewell, we came to know that the borewell has water at 200 feet depth.

I am planning to buy a land in Chennai. The developer says each plot owner have to build septic tank for sewage and also borewell for drinking water. Will the grey water from the septic tank leak and pollute the borewell. There are multiple plots. I want to know how to protect borewell water, as it is the only source for drinking water?

Hello,

My three year old borewell with 450 depth is now getting black and yellow colour, smelly water. Kindly guide me how we can fix this? I have no other source for water. Will bore cleaning help? Pls guide me (the neighbouring house 500 meter away from me is selling water but they never faced this kind of issue)

Thanks & regards

The only place for building rainwater harvesting structure within an apartment site is the stilt parking area with a 10 ft roof.  

Are there restrictions in building RWH structure of 3ft dia width and 10ft deep within the apartment stilt parking area in Chennai? With this type of recharge pit, we are apprehensive about whether all this water underground will affect pillars or the foundations of the construction? We do not have any other open area outside to build this recharge pit.
