Hello Sir, We have a bore well in Bhubaneswar Orissa and for first 30 minutes the water comes from borewell is red color and after that red color disappears. Is there any iron filter available in the market that i can attach to bore well before the water is stored in Over Head tank. Or any other suggestion to solve this critical problem .This problem exists in our area for most of the bore well. Best Regards, Santosh

Locals who protect the migratory birds that come to Chilka lake in Odisha struggle to make a living as the lake has shrunk, thereby shrinking their revenues from fishing.

Nature and wildlife can be better conserved if local communities are duly educated and motivated. Nearly 70 km south of Bhubaneswar, the Mangalajodi village on the edge of Chilka lake, Asia’s largest brackish water lagoon, is a testimony to that argument.

About 25 villagers, many of whom were once-known bird poachers, have now become saviours of the avian winter guests coming in from different parts of the globe including the Siberian and Arabian countries.

Cuttack, in Odisha, overcame the bane of open defecation, dirty water and unclean surroundings thanks to participation and involvement by the locals. The 'Silver City' is now truer to its name.

Clean surroundings, clean water and a clean toilet – as much as Cuttack, in Odisha is a thriving centre of trade and commerce, it lacked these three basic necessities. An exploratory survey was conducted in 2009 to understand why the city hadn't reached a better state of cleanliness. It found that 90% of the people followed open defecation, 99% threw garbage outside the house into open drains and canals and only 56% treated their drinking water.

Hi,

I have a house in Bhubaneswar near Khandagiri. I want to dig a borewell but am not aware how to locate a good water resource point. Please help me with the contacts of any organisation that can help me in identifying a good point.
