How do we conserve water so we do not have to face acute shortage in the future?

Water, the most precious commodity is being abused to such an extent that there is fear that this might lead to another world war or it may be difficult even to get drinking water. Water is indeed an integral part of human body as it accounts for 66 percent of it. The only liquid that quenches thirst satisfactorily is water and a mere two percent dehydration reduces performance by 20 percent.

Hello,

Can anybody give me the factors that I need to consider while deciding whether a UV+UF procedure is required along with RO for water purification. Is there any benefit if UV+UF is considered?

How many stages of purification is required if water contains high TDS?

Please help me.

I am from Kolar, Karnataka. A borewell of 1100 ft was dug in 2001 with a yield of 1 1/2
inches. Currently it has gone down to 1/2 inch. If I recharge borewell via the same well
does it lead to an increase in yield?

Details are as follows:

bore well depth: 1100 ft

casing: 120ft

1st water zone at : 720 ft (below this we didnt get any water source)

motor n pump: 17 hp, 30 stages

It will pump 2' inches of water for 1 minute and 2 minutes will be a gap(no water).

Kindly contribute to the discussion..

The quality of water and the dependency on groundwater in four South Indian cities

This paper by the Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC) examines the extent of groundwater dependency and quality status in four South Indian cities viz., Hubli, Dharwad, Belgaum and Kolar cities. Widespread water shortage problems have resulted in increased dependency on groundwater with tapping the resources to unsustainable levels. In Karnataka, out of 208 urban local bodies that come under Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board, 41 depend on groundwater.

Videoblogging from S.Vishwanath of the Rainwater Club

As ground water levels decline in India, Persian Wheels cannot reach the water to draw them out from open wells. One such Persian wheel stands forlorn and frustrated as the water table has dipped in Kolar, Karnataka India. This wheel has worked for the last 80 years and 2007 was the first time that the water table fell and the wheel could not work for the day. A nearby open well which draws copious water with an electric pump is suspected of causing the dip.
