Marathwada village comes up with a novel idea to tackle water scarcity—water budget for each household. The result is for everyone to see.

Till about a year ago, 52-year-old Kisan Jite would often wake up to his wife Sarla and other village women squabbling over who would fill their buckets first from the only well in Golegaon village. This fight would then proceed to the three water tankers allotted by the zilla parishad for the entire village with a population of 2750 people. Some days, Jite himself would queue up behind the tankers.

A new law Ganga

PMO asks the Environment Ministry to frame the law that will give authorities the power to monitor and regulate the dischare of wastewater, industrial effluents and management of municipal solid waste through the imposition of penalties and damages.

We have a borewell of 260 ft. Last summer it nearly dried up, so we blasted the borewell. Three blasting were done at 100 ft & 190 ft after which the water level increased. Now after the rainy season, we are facing the issue of choked motor and muddy water. Three times we got our motor serviced and have cut the pipe from bottom at 100 ft. Now our bore suction pipe is only 150 ft deep in bore. Our bore well has water at 5 - 8 ft only and can be seen from naked eyes. What can we do to overcome this problem? Can we drill a new bore just adjacent to this?
