Greetings to the entire Team.

You guys are doing a brilliant job. I have a two storey villa in Kerala. We get plenty of rain during the monsoons but that holds no help when the sweltering heat of the summer comes in. The well at our villa runs almost dry during peak summer. I am looking for simple ways as to how we can conserve water in simple cost efficent methods.

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.

Regards
Prashant
