This borewell was dug up to 240 feet in 2004 and yield was very good initially. It depleted by 2010. We removed the pump and repaired, some improvement was seen. Again removed a week back and installed a new pump with every fittings changed, now it runs for 10 minutes with 1/4th the yield. Can working further in this borewell by digging 300 feet further be fruitful or do I need to dig another borewell increasing the depth. An answer by your experts panel will be highly helpful.

Regards,
Vasudevan

Please help us in determining the best motor. I have a building with a height of 40 ft near Tenkasi( Nannagaram). There we  have made a 4.5'dia borewell of 20o ft, there is an open pond nearby 200 Metres. First water spary taken at 38-40 ft , 2nd at 85-90 ft & 3rd one at 130ft. What kind of motor should I go for - compressor motor or submersible. Persons in the area have been using compressor and have observed some fine sand in the water. Kindly suggest your opinion on power consumptions, maintenance and durability of these motors - Texmo / Suguna/ any other.

My borewell is in Thapathali, Kathmandu, Nepal. The bore is 4"diameter, the depth is 44 feet which was done on May 23, 2012. At that time water supply was 1.35 min for 6.35 gallons water. All of sudden from September 25th the water flow went down and took double the time to fill up for the same amount of water. If I increase the ball valve (water flow) then water stops just after 1.3min. I kindly request you to provide me some suggestion. Waiting for your kind information.

With best regards,
Binod Mool

Madakas are being replaced more and more by borewells. Efforts need to be made to restore these structures, create awareness, and preserve local knowledge.

Madakas are one of the fast disappearing traditional rainwater harvesting structures found in the laterite belts of Karnataka and Kerala. They are naturally occuring depressions with high terrain on the three sides where water from the surrounding laterite slopes, mainly runoff from the rains, is accumulated. These have been traditionally used to harvest rainwater by constructing bunds on the open fourth side of the depression to check this runoff from the slopes.
