Query received through email from Arvind Kumar

Hello,

I am research Scholar in Department of Geography, UCSSH, Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur, Rajasthan. I visited the Ground Water
Information System site ( http://gis2.nic.in/cgwb/Gemsdata.aspx) to access data for my research work and download groundwater level data of Jodhpur district, Rajasthan.

I had some difficulties with some data concerning  groundwater. They are as as follows:

Where will India get its fresh water from in the coming years ? What is the state of the sewage system in the country ?

A close examination of these two issues shows that the water and sewage challenge is already grave and could get worse. With this as the backdrop, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a public interest research and advocacy organisation based in New Delhi, organised a two day conference called the Anil Agarwal Dialogue on “Excreta does matter”. The conference took place at the Jacaranda Hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi on 4 and 5 March 2013.

The dialogue aimed at furthering the agenda of CSE’s seventh State of India’s Environment report titled Excreta Matters. This report is a comprehensive survey of the situation of water and wastewater management in 71 Indian cities. The study found that most cities lack a basic policy direction on how best to tackle issues of demand, supply and treatment of water, and of management of sewage. 

The Dialogue being the first of its kind brought together a wide range of professionals, activists, practitioners, policy makers, academicians, researchers and administrators from the water sector. The event was aimed at drawing attention on the critical issues of how cities will get affordable and sustainable water and waste systems that can supply to all and take back and treat the sewage of all.

Hello,

While drilling a borewell in Hassan district, Karnataka, at around 50 feet we encountred clay and the drilling technicians refused to drill further.

The site of the borewell was previously a pond and had paddy fields around.  Could you suggest if we can drill a borewell in such condition and what are the options available, and the agency which could do the same?

This article presents videos of related talks, short descriptions of each video and links to background papers from the IWMI-Tata Annual Partners' Meet in 2012.

India is the world's largest consumer of groundwater where it is extensively used for irrigation. However, there is a considerable waste of this valuable resource. While a part of this waste can be attributed to a lack of incentive for conservation, unmetered electricity supply contributes greatly to this problem. This has led to the formation of what is being termed an energy-irrigation nexus.

Several sessions at the IWMI-Tata Annual Partners' Meet in 2012 discussed this phenomenon, its causes, impact and possible management strategies.

We had dug a borewell last year in the month of July but since the past two months we are getting muddy water. We usually get very clean water for about first ten minutes bit then it gradually starts getting muddy again. We reached the rock at 150 ft and the pump is around 130 ft or so. We have tried many things. What may be the reason and is there any solution for it?
