The villagers of Khalabari are hopeful that the overhead tank being built in the village would make drinking water easily accessible to them.

In the early hours, the villagers of Khalabari, a tribal-dominated village in the Dumuripadar gram panchayat of Koraput district in Odisha step out of their houses for bringing wood and drinking water. The road to the forest where the water is available is rocky. Both women and men walk a few kilometres on the harsh terrain to bring essential commodities needed for their survival. Khalabari, with a population of 186, has 45 households.

This is Mr. Zaib from Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Sorry to say but my English is not very good so do pardon me in advance if you can't get my point. We built our new home last year and did a 130 feet deep bore well in March 2016. Water comes out in the bore well at twice stages ( at 55 feet and 78 feet deep) In the begging there was sufficient water in the bore well and whenever we switched On the pump then the water comes out from the bore well for more than 90 minutes contentiously ( non stop ).

Electrician told due to overheating of CPVC pipe in low water discharge, it might got melted in between and the pump with motor assemble got detached . The reason we guess is that the pump is being operated without Non return Valve for the past few days (3 weeks). Also the normal running time is 2 hours daily (1 hour in morning and 1 hour in evening). Further we have been informed while using submersible pumps at a depth of 850 feet, we should have tied rope along with the pump which we are not aware at the time of instalaltion.
