Groundwater contamination is a serious, but relatively ignored issue in the country. This contamination occurs in either through geogenic or anthropogenic means. This paper analyses the Fluoride contamination, one such example of geogenic contamination, widely found in the Kolar district of Karnataka.

Groundwater contamination is a serious, but relatively ignored issue in the country. This contamination occurs in either through geogenic or anthropogenic means. Fluoride contamination is one such example of geogenic contamination that is widely found in the Kolar district of Karnataka. However, the fluoride levels in the town of Mulbagal are lower than those in the surroundings. Earlier, a study was conducted on the impact of pit toilets on the groundwater in the area. The present paper investigates the presence of any link between these two phenomena.View of Mulbagal Town, Kolar District, Karnataka

Impact of pit-toilet leachate on groundwater chemistry and role of vadose zone in removal of nitrate and E. coli pollutants in Kolar District, Karnataka, India

Given the many problems associated with flush toilets and the sewerage system, pit toilets offer a viable solution in India. However, the use of soakpits raises the question of groundwater contamination. This paper assesses the impact of pit toilet leachate on groundwater quality in Mulbagal town (pop ~ 60,000) in Karnataka relies on pit toilets, and uses groundwater for drinking.View of the town of Mulbagal, Karnataka

This is the story of a neglected kalyani or temple tank in the town of Mulbagal, Karnataka.

Guest post by Manjunath Prasad

As part of the Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) initiative at Arghyam, this kalyani that had been abandoned and neglected for the past 25 years was adopted by its own community and transformed in a matter of days.

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.
