Namakkal District

Panchayat presidents of Namakkal district get people to build toilets at home by banning them from work until they do so.

Thipramahadevi Pudhur is a village in Erumapatti Block, Namakkal District with 115 households. In July this year, this village was declared as ‘open-defecation free’ (ODF), something that was aided by Leaf Society, an organization based in Namakkal and their effective strategy of awareness generation, and leveraging of government loans to communities via convergence.

Bangalore water mafia goes innovative to evade law

The water mafia, with the help of local political leaders, has taken to digging borewells in rented premises in localities closer to lakes. This started after the government started monitoring borewells in the city

We wish to start a water plant near Pallipalayam region. We have a water of 5 inch through bore well, which is 250 meters from river Cauvery. We did our water test from the lab and the water is of drinking quality and TDS is below 200. We use RO for drinking water and we can bring the TDS down to 50.

Our questions are:

Hello Sir

I am from Namakkal Dt, TamilNadu. I did borewell for 2 house use purpose. 

Used 61/2'' borewell.

Till 100 ft it was fully dry powder

Around 100 ft the dry become wet.Then we got 3/4'' water at 680' feet. At this level only water came out in a drizzling way.

The borewell operator said it could be between 1' to 11/2' water. Then we stopped at 780 feet.

 

My questions are,

1. What kind of pump I should use like 1 BHP or 2 BHP?

2. what kind of power source i have select like Single phase or Three phase?

I have purchased a well alongside the river cavery near the Poolampatti Barrage, and my farm is approx.4km from this well. There are two canals enroute which need to be crossed. I am in the process of obtaining permission with the concerned authorities

a. Village Panchayat - for laying the pipes alongside the panchayat road

b. Electricity Board - for getting free electricity

c. Public Works Department - for crossing the two canals and along side state highways (approx. 2kms)

(i.e., This well was dug before 1947, before the canals were built.)
