Authorities plan to revive 21 lakes in Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram districts

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.

Hello,

A year ago I drilled a borewell using the bit drilling technique.

The contractor used a 10 inch outer pvc casing and we reached the rock around 20 to22 feet. The boring went on till 470 feet during this process strangely we found huge amounts of rock dust which spread all over the neighbourhood. I am not sure but it was strange as I had not seen this anywhere earlier.

After we found water it has silt and the contractor suggested we put casing which we did. My neighbours on either sides have good quality water with no silt complaint.
