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.

Hi,

We have dug a borewell 270 ft deep in a school building. The water level of the borewell is 100 ft. We want to install a motor which has the capacity to pump water from 240-250 ft deep, then transfer the water to the other corner of the building 200 ft away and then further lift the water to the height of 60 ft towards a water tank. So, please suggest me the kind of submersible pump to be used in this case, along with specifications of motor like how much HP, what phase and so on.

Thanks

Hi all,

We had drilled two borewells about a year back in our layout (300+ houses). But, we didn't use it till now. We want help in terms of :

1. Testing the water quality
2. Arriving pump capacity required for these bore wells (600 ft & 900 ft)
3. Connecting these borewells to our existing water distribution infrastructure
4. Rain water harvesting and borewell recharging upgradation planning for the layout

Looking for a hydrology consultant to help us on the above.

Regards, Parthasarathy
