We drilled borewell in the month of October and we went until 1120 feet but we didn't find any source of water. The drilling person mentioned that water of 0.5" is available. We thought that it is a failure and we constructed our home. After completing the home construction, I used the camera technique and was able to find water at a depth of 300 feet but in the video that was provided I was not able to find any single source. But the camera person and some of the people are suggesting to put the motor.

The polluted Erai river needs to be restored before it completely dies and leaves the people dependent on it searching for drinking water.

The Erai river, the main tributary of the Wardha river, is the lifeline for the people of Chandrapur in Maharashtra. It primarily supplies water to the Chandrapur city and Chandrapur super thermal power station (CSTPS). Since 1984, after the initiation of operations of M/s CSTPS and Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), the river has begun to get polluted and is now gasping for breath.
