I recently drilled a borewell in my site in Erode, but could not find water source even after going beyond 940 ft, hence stopped the drilling. Before drilling borewell, I got the site verified by water diviner (who brought a machine and found a point to drill. Mr. Natarajan-9842776565). But could not trace water even after crossing 940 ft, though the estimated depth was 650-700 ft. I have wasted my money, nearly 1 lakh!

State sponsored policies and programmes must be sensitive to promote sustainable developmental activities in this already fragile social ecological system in Tamil Nadu.

Today's rural poor operate in highly risky and uncertain environments. Grappling with multiple stresses like eroding natural resources, poor assets and increasing climate variability, they are constantly adjusting their lives and livelihoods--changing a crop grown, digging another well, or migrating to a nearby town. To understand how livelihoods are changing in semi-arid India and what this implies for people's vulnerability to current and future impacts of climate change, we visited the semi-arid regions of the Moyar Bhavani river basin in Tamil Nadu.

This paper documents one of the unique microcredit projects of UNICEF in three blocks of Erode district in Tamil Nadu.

Our four year old borewell is 6 inch deep with 650 feet silt at the bottom, 25 feet pump and 5 HP air compressor water pipe. The static level of water is 600 feet. Till last summer we got good yielding from the borewell but then the yield had gone down to 5000- 7000 litres per hour, later to 3000 litres per day. In winters, the yield had gone up to almost 50 feet from ground but we faced another problem that the compressor was not pumping water. We got the compressor serviced and moved the water pipe level from 600 feet to 400 feet (when the yielding was 5000 litres per 2 hours).
