Hello,

I have dug a borewell 855 feet deep. I got two sources, one at 196 ft and another at 220 ft. Total yeild is 3/4". But after scanning the boewell using a camera, I found that there is only 50ft of water from the bottom of the borewell .

At 816 ft there is one more source. But I dont know whether it is a dry source. So please let me know why water level is not rising up.

Hi,

We have a borewell with a motor at 500ft depth. During rainy season, there was a little seepage of muddy water and the motor stopped functioning. When we checked with a borewell person he told that borewell motor is stuck with mud and cannot be pulled out. So we had a pipe blasting and pulled out the remaining pipe and thread. WE were told that after this we annot use the motor. We scanned the borewell using a camera and fund that there is another source at 180 ft and can use that by installing a new motor. Please help me with the following points.
