Hi

We need to dispose near 5000 kg of glass flake which was intended to be used as a raw material for protective paints and coatings. Can anyone advise us about the disposal process, methodology and cost estimates.

It has been close to 3 years since I have been using a Grundfos 2HP pump which is 550 ft below the ground in my home bore well. It was all fine, till it stopped working a few days back. No electric or water level issues have been found. On taking the pump out we were shocked to see silt and boulder granules that have made their way into the mesh and damaged the pump. The motor appears to be ok.

Hello

Rainwater should go to underground with the help of small pipes in urban area roads. Is this possible ?

We stay in a small galli where a lot of rainwater accumulates during the rain and and then simply evaporates. Can we send it for groundwater recharge? Is it only possible for newly constructed roads? Can the existing roads also use any possibilty to recharge groundwater?

Thanks

Dear IWP

There are many open wells that have dried up in Telangana state, but there are number of bore wholes that still provide plenty of water to people. But the problem is that people are letting water drain out simply.

If checked, the answer is " We have plenty of water for use". If this continues, we will soon not have even a single drop of water to drink. When the power comes, all pumps switch on automatically and nobody switches them off them, even after getting sufficient water for their daily use.

Hi,

We have a bore of 510ft deep in our apartment with a water depth of 250ft and the pump is placed at a depth of 450ft. Now the association has place restrcition on timings for water supply from the overhead tank. The timings are an hour morning & evening per day. They claim that this way water can be saved. So every day they run the motor for 3 hours to fill the overhead tank(if it is empty) but will allow water only for an hour.

 So here my question is...

Sir

I need to know which is the best time of the year to flush a borewell. Is it before rains, during rains, after Rains or in the period of lowest yield ie during Summer?

Thanking you in advance.

Hi,

I lives in a 3BHK in Bangalore on 3rd Floor(top floor) and we have an overhead tank for supply, and we have added a Kranti Water meter now.
the problem is that the pressure is very low and when water taps are opened simultaneously in other bathrom, it becomes too low. I have researched on the internet & learned that there are pressure pump available to boost water supply.

Hello,

I have a roof top terrace garden that I have tended to for many months now. I don't use any chemicals for the plants and the only addition to the soil is compost once in a few months. Is it okay to harvest rain water from the same place where I have this garden?

I was adviced by one person that i should clear the terrace space if i want to harvest water from there. Is that so and are there any other ways to do this (any creative designs/ filters that can take care of the garden contamination?)

Thanks

Schimmanda
