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.

We are setting up an alternate school (www.aarohilife.org) on a 5 acre land near (20km) from Hosur. The site is on hill side with essentially rocky thorny terrain. We plan to have the campus of our school off the grid - hence water source selection has to be careful. We have thought of following options.

We have a borewell drilled one year back before construction of a house at Bangalore. Now construction is completed & borewell is located inside the house. We had good source but later due to another bore drilled by the government very close to ours for public water, our bore has completely dried. I need you sugestion to re-drill the same bore well upto 800ft. Details : our bore is upto 420ft, casing upto 120ft later completely stone upto 420ft. Dia is 6inch. Other bore is up to 750ft with 6 inch.

Hi ,

We have a  borewell at our home which is 165 feet deep in Hyderabad with water at 40 feet below the ground. It was dug 8 years back and it was all good for 8 years but from last week the water has turned yellowish and is frothy. It even has a bad odour to it. I need your assistance as we are facing problems due to the unavailability of any other source of water to solve this problem. Can you please suggest some local office or help center in Hyderabad where I can find help to my problem.?

We have dug well in Purandar taluka, Pune District where generally we get inadequate rains. Hence we need to store water and use it judiciously for agriculture as well as drinking . We need your advice as to how we should preserve it by adding any oil/chemical/any material so that it can be used for agriculture purpose. We also have the facility to store 20,000 litres in addition to well water.Please also let us know how should we purify it and use for human and animal consumption.
