Hello,

I have dug a borwell at 650 feet depth but it failed. We stopped drilling further as we found semi dry black mud. The plots adjacent to ours on both sides have water in their borewells at 350 feet and 400 feet respectively.

I would like to know

  1. If blasting will help me get water in the bore
  2. Will the same bore at 650 feet yield water after monsoons
  3. Should I try a bore at another location in the plot

Please let me know.

Regards,

Manu

Industrial pollution in villages, access to water data and seasonal pricing of water hog the limelight in this week's roundup

Water data at your fingertips

Finally a policy that allows data collected using public money to be made available and shared by the rightful owners - the common man. The Ministry of Water Resources releases its hydro – meteorological data dissemination policy (2013) in a bid to be more accessible, proactive and open in its approach.

PM’s office contradicts Supreme Court ruling; rights of tribals compromised

Hi,

My friends had a borewell dug to 700 feet in Madhya Pradesh but it is not yielding enough water to run the motor properly. I came across the recharge system through internet sources and was wondering if I could get some contact of people who could help my friends build the system.

With no single example across the world to cite for successful model of water privatisation, the irony remains that it continues to grow in developing countries. India is witnessing a range of private sector participation in various water schemes, these come under different forms and shapes but the motive remains the same- make profit out water. Almost all privatisation endeavor in water sector has met with obstacles, Khandwa is no exception! The teething problem of the project doesn't appear to settle as the rising discontent and resistance among people continues to grow.

The bad track record of the public sector to provide water has increasingly led to private sector participation in water supply system. The proponents of privatization state that private sector would increase efficiency, bring adequate finance and help build the infrastructure that is required to run the utilities properly in an effective manner. The anti privatisation lobby argue that the price of water will increase, will undermine the socio-cultural aspects of water and also there will be water quality issues.

This article presents videos of related talks, short descriptions of each video and links to background papers from the IWMI-Tata Annual Partners' Meet in 2012.

India is the world's largest consumer of groundwater where it is extensively used for irrigation. However, there is a considerable waste of this valuable resource. While a part of this waste can be attributed to a lack of incentive for conservation, unmetered electricity supply contributes greatly to this problem. This has led to the formation of what is being termed an energy-irrigation nexus.

Several sessions at the IWMI-Tata Annual Partners' Meet in 2012 discussed this phenomenon, its causes, impact and possible management strategies.
