Hello,

I am from Vaiji village in Chiplun, Maharashtra. We had dug a borewell, 230 ft deep, but was a failure. Now we are planning to dig a new one and the distance between borewell and new well is almost 80 ft.

When we started digging, till 22 feet depth we found only mud, but after that, till 32 ft we encountered only black stone. We had used blasting technique to go past the stone. Is there any possibility of finding water? Should I dig further?
