Water level in India’s major reservoirs and river basins in a precarious state: CWC

Hello, I reside in a village nearby to Madurai, Tamil Nadu. We own a farmland of five acres, in which we recently dug a borewell of 1000 ft depth, as our farm land heavily rely on the borewater. We installed submersible motor of 7.5 HP capacity and started yielding water out of it. It pumps out 1.5 inch of water for about 1 hr daily. This availability of water from this borewell is more likely to deplete in the coming months (because in summers, we face water shortage in borewells every year & other nearby farms too).

Yes, say the authors, but not before these tanks are recognized in a manner befitting their past glory: as prized resources that provided water to the city even though it had no perennial rivers.

Madurai, Tamil Nadu's second largest city, is now filled with buildings and roads which are eating into its age old network of tanks and canals. This change did not happen overnight. It began in the late 19th century by the British when they merged several hamlets to establish their headquarters in the region.
