Satara District

A stepwell in Maharashtra stands for the spectacular architecture of a time when the importance of water conservation was acknowledged and water was stored and used with ingenuity.

The annual droughts in Maharashtra have put tremendous pressure on the available water resources in the state. While the government has not been able to provide adequate, potable water to people in both rural and urban areas, the need to explore other decentralised and localised means of harnessing and conserving water has only got more crucial with time [1].

Exploitation of groundwater in Panchgani, Maharashtra, led to acute water shortage but the people of Akhegani decided to do something about it. Watch how they built spring boxes to revive springs.

The Western Ghats, known for its biodiversity, is one of India's most sought after ecological hotspots. One of its stark features is the basalt rocks, often referred to as water buckets indicating the water retention capacity of the rock, found there. Of the many popular hill stations in the Western Ghats, Panchgani is commonly visited by tourists due to its proximity to Pune, Mumbai and Mahabaleshwar. The mountains here are crowned with basalt rocks.

Hello,

My submersible pump is stuck in the borewell at 190 feet. I am not able to remove it. Roots of trees may have entangled at 40 feet depth. Kindly suggest how I can remove the pump.

Awareness and community-level action are key to the success of any initiative; these six villages in Maharashtra are testimony to that.

Maharashtra is reeling under a drought – one of the worst in the last 40 years. The state declared drought in 125 out of 358 talukas during kharif 2012-13, and then declared water scarcity in 3,905 villages in rabi 2012-13. Thapewadi, Phalakewadi and Muthalane villages in Pune, Randulabad villages of Satara, and Satichiwadi and Shelkewadi villages of Ahmednagar are all villages in drought-affected districts of Maharashtra but they are unlike their neighbours.

We require 10,000 litres of water per day. The borewell that we currently have at Gote village in Mulshi taluka in Maharashtra provides about 1800 liters per day.

We recently dug a 250 ft deep bore but it was completely dry, inspite of this area getting a high amount of  rainfall.

I would like details of a geoloist or water diviner to find another borewell point.

I have drilled a borewell for domestic use. The casing is 40 feet and the depth of the borewell is 60 feet. The soil below casing is white and I want to know who conducts the yield test of a borewell in Wai, Satara district before putting a new borewell pump?
