Dear IWP

I was unable to get the rainfall data of Kozhikode district from 2011 to 2014 from your site.







I have a borewell about 250 ft. I want to block the bottom of the borewell, because there is 30 ft of bad water and rest of water are good...

I need valuable advice, please help me....

Dear Sir,

Last summer I dug a new borewell which is yielding good amount of water. Recently we have noticed a change in the colour of water which has turned blackish. The mud in this area is slight whitish as we seen in the farms hence we are not sure if its because of silt.

My questions are:

- Is this blackish colour normal ?

- How do we make sure that this water is safe for drinking?
