Population increase and the resultant increase in consumption has come to lay enormous stress on food production, thus underlying the need to bring in more land under cultivation

 At the same time we also need to keep in mind the judicious use of natural  resources, especially in rain-fed areas. Integrating sustainability and demand is one of the greatest challenges faced by communities and nations today.

We had drilled a borewell in May 2012 and there was lot of water during the first six month but now as per the borewell technician there is no water inside. We had drilled upto 150 ft borewell, is it possible that water is not stored at the base of borewell. The pump machine and electricity supply is ok, please give advice.

I am Rajesh from Punjab. I have a borewell of  5" and 50 feet deep in my field . Please guide me which monoblock water pump set (Pump size in mm, suc, & del , RPM , Imp dia in mm , power rating in HP ) is most suitable for the borewell by which I can get maximum water. If possible please also tell me the calculation method by which I can calculate the most suitable pump set for my bore well

We at the India Water Portal would be very grateful for your help on the data project on groundwater issues

At India Water Portal’s data project, we are working on an initiative on which we need your help.

The Central Ground Water Board, the governing body around monitoring groundwater in India, has released very informative profiles of every district. These profiles have an incredible wealth of knowledge about local groundwater issues, and we would like your help in getting some of this great information into an accessible format. We have three projects where we need your help.

Please give us advice for this case though mail at the earliest.

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.

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.
