Andhra denies water to Karnataka

Hi,

We tried drilling a borewell upto 375 ft at a location suggested by an expert using the electric testing method in village Tambati, Khalapur District, Raigad, Maharashtra but failed.

Can someone guide if there is any other more reliable and accurate method of testing water point.

Many plants are in equal danger of becoming as extinct as some animals. Does anyone care?

A fluttering butterfly or a dashing cheetah immediately bring vivid images to mind. Does the image of a plant stir us as much? Are we as fascinated watching a flower bloom? Probably not. Maybe that’s why there is such a large focus on endangered animals and birds and not so much on plant species that are dying out. The Western Ghats is a great example of this. The floral diversity in this area is still untapped as revealed by two recent research reports by famous botanists.

Hello,

I have recently dug an open well in North Konkan - Raigad District. Raigad is not known for Laterite formation, however my area has very large laterite formation - upto 80 feet deep.

Top 8 ft is soil, then 16 feet of heavily weathered laterite + clay seams. So the well is 24 feet deep. The dimensions I have chosen (and dug) are large and unfortunately not circular : It is 45ft * 45ft for the first 8ft, then 30ft * 30ft for the next 8ft and then 20ft * 25ft for the last 8ft depth.

The western ghats are being relentlessly and systematically dammed. Officials create confusing jargon, find legal loopholes and the environmental procedure is waved off.

These global biodiversity hotspots in the country, extraordinarily rich in plant and animal species, are being submerged in the name of development and growth. An overview of the dams built and proposed in this area.

Hello,

My farm is in north Konkan - Raigad district. The soil is lateritic. It is on a plateau, but at the base of a 40m high ridge which forms the catchment area.

Eventually, I intend to dig an openwell, but due to some restrictions initially I decided on a borewell. The question is, how far should my borewell be from the proposed openwell so that it does not affect the inflows into the well. The openwell spot gets inflows from all directions (N, E, W, S) and the borewell is a little upstream on one of the sides of the openwell.
