Dear Sir/Madam,

I am from Bangalore, Karnataka. I have a borewell of 325 ft depth, with a submersible pump, which  has a piping upto 300ft and casing upto 45ft . I have been using this borewell for more than 10 years.   For last 5 days, when pumped there is clean water for less than 1  min after which the water turns muddy. After 7-10 min the water turns almost clean again. Please guide me.

Hello Everyone,

When I constructed my house in Thyagaraj nagar, Bangalore, we had a borewell dug and got water at the 160 ft and we went till 320ft. After one week  we put a pump and submersible motor(suguna 2 hp 20 stage) for 300 ft pipe and cable. We are getting a water exactly for 15 minutes and it stops. Again after 4-6 hours gap, if we switch on the motor again we will get water for 15 minutes only.

We have been suggested to put the pipe upto 285 ft instead of 300ft (cutting the 15 ft) and try, but still we are receiving the water for 15 minutes only.

I am constructing a house which has a roof area of 200 Sq. M. I would like to set up a borewell to direct the rain water run off from the roof to recharge groundwater. I am located in Delhi.  Here the first level of water may be reached at about 35 feet depth. Please advice.

Sir,

I am Chakrayapet Mandal in Kadapa district. Back in 1986 I dug a borewell and it was working for 5 years, after that my neighbour dug a bore at a distance of 25 meters and after that I lost the water in my bore. Now I want to dig a new one at a distance of 120 meters but my neighbour did not accept this and has lodged a complaint with the MRO office. Please send me the correct information regarding the distance to be maintained between adjacent borewells.

We have a college in Nelamangala in Karnataka, where we have already drilled 7 borewells each more than 1000 feet.  Out of these only 2 are working with a minimum water source of about 1/2 inch according to the mechanic. I want to drill one more bore well now. I want to adopt a scientific approach to make an assessment of underground water and then arrive at the point that will yield atleast 2 inches of water.  Is there anyone who can help me in this regard.

Recently we dug a borewell and the water was tested, the TDS level was 265  which was measerd by an aquagaurd salesman and according to him the water is not safe to drink. He suggested using an RO purifier, now my question is whether the water from the borewell is safe to drink or whether i should go for RO purifier. Kindly give suggestion and suitable answer.

The APWELL project sought to improve agricultural production through controlled groundwater exploitation by the means of nearly 3,500 wells and irrigation systems. The project acknowledged the risk of over-exploitation of groundwater.Part of the solution was to only permit wells in areas that were not already over-exploited. Recharge of groundwater and increasing irrigation efficiency were also implemented.

Preventing groundwater abuse depends on the users' knowledge of what constitutes this over-exploitation and abuse, and why it is undesirable. The success of APWELL, therefore, depends on participatory hydrological monitoring in which the users were trained in basic hydrology and charged with monitoring the hydrological balance of the watershed. In addition to quantity, APWELL has also been focusing on drinking quality, as the project found that many farmers depend on irrigation borewells  for their  drinking water.
