Hello,

The well in my land in Tamil Nadu is mostly dry through the summer months. I got a borewell drilled upto recently and found water at 45 feet. 

This bore is about 100 feet away from the existing panchayat well which does not have good water.

The issue is the panchayat wants to dig a side bore to the existing well. I am worried if this will affect the water level in my borewell.

Would like to know if there are any regulations to dig a side bore and if this can be stopped.

Borewell is 100 feet deep and submersible pump is at 50 feet, and a iron block got stuck at 50 feet while cleaning it a few years ago.

A drainage pipe passes at about 3 feet away from the bore. Whenever the draiange pipe gets blocked the water in our borewell gets polluted and foul odour emnates from it.

I am not sure if the drainage water is entering through our damaged casing pipe. Need suggestiosn to repair this borewell.
