Hi,

I want to know the methods that can be used to find out the groundwater level in Dudhwakhara village in Churu district of Rajasthan. Earlier some attempts were made to upto 500 feet and obtained very salty water. It could not be dug further as we encountered some hard rock. I need to know if anything can be done further. Please advise

Hi,

We are constructing a new house in Jaipur. We are interested in getting water harvesting done. However, we don't have expertise to do so. Moreover, few people have told us that the construction of the water storage tank would not be possible due to rocky terrain.

Can somebody help me on this? Or can somebody put me in touch with an expert in Jaipur?

Thanks in advance!

Solar energy might be free but the equipment needed to tap into it is expensive. Can farmers benefit without falling into the subsidy trap?

Indian farmers depend on groundwater for irrigation but often, there is a shortage of electricity that is required to pump out this water. While diesel pumps are an option, they are costly to run. A better alternative is to tap into freely available solar power. However, this technology is quite expensive at present and effective subsidies and incentives drive its usage. Another catch to this ‘free’ power situation is the perception that if groundwater were available more freely, then farmers might end up exploiting it.

Hello,

I am a student currently studying about the water crisis in Rajasthan. I found this article (https://www.indiawaterportal.org/sites/indiawaterportal.org/files/bhilwara_grndwater.pdf) on your website and found it very informative. I would like to know the source of this information as this would be very valuable and helpful to me.

Bone disease fluorosis can be prevented if people understand the importance of good nutrition

Fluorosis is a bone disease that is caused by a high consumption of fluoride. Most think that it is a direct result of drinking water with high fluoride content alone but it isn’t so. Nutrition plays an  important role in the onset of this disease. Including vitamin C and calcium in our diets as well as modifying cooking methods to lessen the absorption of fluoride from cooking water are crucial to preventing fluorosis.
