The Green Bazaar, which brought together local communities and businesses as well as water experts, provided a fitting end to India Water Portal's celebrations of World Water Day 2014.

In honour of World Water Day 2014, the theme at the Green Bazaar, a community event run by The Alternative, was water. India Water Portal collaborated to add some 'blue' to the 'green'.

Hi, I have dug a borewell 430 ft deep at Ulsoor in Bangalore. Four months ago the motor got stuck in the borewell and I pulled the motor up using air pressure. The motor was then repaired and while re-installing the motor it got stuck again. I called the borewell camera person who confirmed that the motor was stuck inside. Then using a chain pulley I myself lifted the motor but the silt has come to 210 ft level now and the static level of water is still 35 ft. Please suggest what has to be done in this situation. Can I still use the water using a silt pipe with one end closed.

Hi. I want to dig a borewell in my house in Bangalore near Yelahanka IAF backside. The problem is that I have only 2.5 ft space available for the borewell, which also incudes the boundry wall. If I break the boundary wall then is it possible to dig the borewell ? Also, I have a parking space infront of my house, is there any inhouse machinery/technology available to drill 1000 ft borewell inside the parking space ? I would appreciate if I can get contacts of people/organisation who can help me drill the borewell.

Grams in Tripura not 'Nirmal'

In our apartment, we have a borewell around 250 to 300 ft deep. Recently, the borewell pump was not working and we tried to pull the pump out but was unable to pull it out. We called the borewell people, who tried to pull the pump using chain pulley and cable rope through the PVC pipe. Despite their efforts they were able to only remove the pipe and cable and now the pump is stuck at the bottom. Now my question is that:

1. Can we remove the pump with any other method.

2. If not, then can we install a new pump above the old pump.

Please advise.

I am trying to dig a borewell at a vacant site in Bangalore south. The borewell point I got for digging is very close, about two feet, from the compound wall of a house. The drillers are saying it is difficult to dig a borewell with such proximity to compound wall. Please advise, what to do in such a situation? Santosh

Hi, We have a sewage treatment plant (STP) in our apartment complex in Whitefield, Bangalore. The treated water from the STP is reused in toilets and gardening but we are facing the issue of excess water getting generated from the STP and there is no storage for the excess treated water. Initially, we thought of discharging the excess water to the main drain outside of our apartment complex, but came to know that it is not allowed and there are huge penalties if BWSSB/KSPCB gets to know about it.
