Latur in Maharashtra has been facing acute drinking water scarcity over the last month and has been in news again, and that too, inspite of having piped water connections and a good monsoon this year!

I have 620 feet deep borewells which contains 1.5 inch water and 7.5 HP motor with 12 stages as well as outer pipeline is 2.5 inch pipe. Please let me know if 1.5 inch water in borewell is there which size pipeline should I choose?

My second question is: The 7.5 HP pump stops every 3 minutes after pumping for 2 minutes. These 2 minutes water comes full in 2.5 inches pipe, later it gives break of 3 minutes and then starts pumping for 2 minutes. Kindly advice me on a right choice of over bend size of pipeline.

How can India change the game on groundwater management to deal with its overexploited aquifers?

After independence, India was largely food insecure but post Green Revolution around the 1970s, foodgrain production increased manifold consequently reducing food insecurity and poverty in the country, in spite of rapid population growth. Its ability to achieve targeted results was largely dependent on the explosion of groundwater abstraction mechanisms like tubewells.

The Karnataka Jnana Aayoga (KJA) set up a Task Group to draft a new water policy for Karnataka in December 2017 and the report is now in public domain. What are the suggestions that the report makes?

The water crisis in Karnataka has not only led to severe agrarian distress in the eastern plains region but also created an acute shortage of domestic water, in both rural and urban areas. The 21st century has seen significant changes in demography, economy and agriculture, increasing the demand for water in the state. Expanding irrigation and urbanisation, possibly have also had a negative impact on river basins and water conflicts are seeing a rise in the state. All these developments have substantially complicated and aggravated the water challenges in Karnataka.
