Hello,

I want to drill a borewell in Madyachi wadi, Pinguli road, Kudal. 

It will be very helpful if you could answer the below questions:

  • Need contact number of agencies who drill borewells.
  • What will be the rate payable per feet?

Can the water used for cleaning puprose be directly used for groundwater recharge.

If there are any pre-treatment steps to be taken, what are they?

Groundwater is our main source of water for domestic, agriculture and industrial use today and through base flows, it also maintains the flow in many of our rivers

It is therefore crucial that we look after this resource and ensure that it is managed properly.Over reliance on groundwater for both domestic and commercial purposes has led to over-exploitation and contamination of groundwater. In order to make groundwater sustainable, there is a need to understand the aquifer characteristics as well as its overall geological setting. This understanding will help in:

While digging a borewell in Bangalore at around 900 feet a bit has broken, and the diggers tried to recover it using magnet but failed.

Would like to know if I can recover it by any other alternate way and further drilling.

Thanks

This collection of district level maps by Environmental Information System Centre, Department of Environment, Government of Tamil Nadu shows the details of fluoride, chloride, iron, nitrate and salinity present in groundwater in Tamil Nadu.

The Environmental Information System Centre, Department of Environment has prepared groundwater quality maps of Tamil Nadu. Water is considered to be hard when it contains high level of dissolved minerals. This may be of natural occurrence or due to human activities such as industrialisation leading to water pollution.

Hello,

Borewell depth 350 feet deep and it went dry 6 months back in Bangalore. When we lifted the motor to check the water level we found water upto 90 feet high from the base.

Would like to know if it is okay to use this borewell on a daily basis and is the water sufficient to provide for 15 flats.

The TDS level of water from our borewell in Panvel, Navi Mumbai is >500 ppm and hardness is >1000 ppm.

The water from the borewell tastes salty and soap doesn't produce foam in this water. Please suggest treatment so that this water can be used for domestic and potable purpose.

Thanks

Ever wondered why there is so much fuss about groundwater getting scarce by the day and its quality deteriorating like never before ? And does the liquid and solid waste that my home releases into the environment everyday influence groundwater ? These questions and many more were answered in a recent training workshop organized by People’s Science Institute, Dehradun from 12th to 22nd December 2012. The training was conducted with the aim of promoting the integration of hydrogeology into mainstream watershed management with a focus on issues of equity, quality and sustainability. This was the third in this series of workshops organized by PSI after December 2011 and June 2012, with the focus on groundwater management in the Himalayan states of India.

Why a training on managing groundwater ?

A watershed is an area that drains to a common waterway (line or area), such as a stream, lake, estuary, wetland, aquifer , or even the ocean — and our individual actions can directly affect it. What is generally ignored is the fact that the physical characteristics of rocks below the soil, including their mineralogical and chemical composition, grain size, their sorting and packing and the primary structures have hydrogeological significance in the watershed area.

This video demonstrates an alternative way of dealing with waste through a decentralised waste disposal method. Rahul Banerjee, Director, Dhas Gramin Vikas Kendra, believes in managing the waste at the point of origin itself, rather than expecting an already inefficient and over burdened local body to find a conducive solution.
