India is facing a major water crisis and a number of water sector challenges remain unaddressed even today.

India is on the brink of a major water crisis. With drought looming over the southern and western parts of the country, the existing water resources are in peril. Rivers are getting more polluted, their catchments, water-holding and water-harvesting mechanisms are deteriorating and groundwater levels are depleting at an alarming rate.

We have around 400 feet borewell, but for some reason we did not use it for long. Recently, we tried to use the borewell but could not extract any water, so we tried to pull the motor to see if it was functioning properly. However, while pulling the motor up it fell into the borehole but the remaining cable and pipes came up. We have realised that removing the old motor or fixing the new one would cost us same. Now my question is that if we leave the old motor inside will it cause any problem in future?

I have a borewell with 350 feet depth, suddenly we got a problem with wire which is connected to the motor placed at the bottom of the borewell. We tried to pull the motor and pipes with borewell machine and chain-type machine, but both have not worked. Now motor and pipes are still there at 160 feet from bottom. Could you please help me provide solution to pull the motor and pipe. I am from Kappalabanda Village, Puttaparthi Mandal, Ananthapur District, Andhra Pradesh - 9866791297

A 7.5 hp motor supplies to 06 number of G+3 building overhead tanks. At times, when few (say 04) buildings overhead tank are full, the pipeline system and motor gets pressurized due to supply to only 02 buildings. The pipe line is 2.5 inch dia. I have heard, variable speed motor may be helpful. Also, if someone can suggest auto shut/open system for such arrangement where there is supply from one motor is to 06 buildings.
