 Hello,

My borewell is 600 feet deep, with 20 feet casing. It has 6" dia. I want to use this for agricultural purposes. Can anyone guide me as to how I should calculate the required capacity (hp) of the submersible pump for this borewell? What are the factors to be considered?

Revival of dug wells in the hard rock regions of India: economic and social impact.

carewaterThe discussion paper by Carewater INREM Foundation on possibility of revival of dug wells in hard rock India through recharge is based on a field study across ten districts of the country. The study seeks to understand how localized governance of groundwater in hard rock areas is to be pursued through pricing (water, energy), legal regulation and community institutions. Water supply augmentation and demand management are both to be taken care of, directly through regulation or through indirect instruments such as pricing.
