The proposed power projects in the Konkan region of Maharashtra have gravely affected people's livelihoods and their drinking water. Why aren't these plants being shut down?

24 power projects are being proposed in Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts in the Konkan region of Maharashtra, which has the second highest biodiversity in India. The 9900 megawatt (MW) nuclear power project at Jaitapur is also included in this list of projects. If sanctioned, it could be the largest nuclear power generating plant in the world.

I am from a village near Sawantawadi,  Maharashtra & own a 15 acre plot. I have identified 2 spots for digging a well using traditional method.I have been advised to dig atleast 20 feet and at about 15 feet its expected that i will come across hard black stone during digging. I want to dig a well at least 5mts in diametre and upto 25to 30 feet deep. I am confused for which method to use for digging.

I would like to know if it is advisable to use a JCB machine for digging the well or to go in for traditional manual labour.

This paper describes some traditional water management techniques of the Konkan region of Maharashtra, with the hope that an effort will be made to revive them to ensure water supply for rural areas.

The state government's investments in supplying potable water under the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran (MJP) scheme which envisaged a no tanker supply' end to the scheme is critiqued. The authors note that the project mainly concentrated on asset creation, neglecting operation and maintenance resulting in limited improvement in villages, with respect to water supply.
