The water yeild in our borewell was around 1.25 inch at 570 sft. We further bored it upto 740 sft but there was no sign of second yeild. However, our neighbors got first yeild at 990 sft. We did not want to go further deep and hence we stopped at 740sft. The borewell is for domestic purpose. Now can I go for single phase motor, at a depth of 650sf? Also, one or two feet before the fracture point at 570sft, we got some boulders. Is this due to water yeild point or will have slit issue in later stages. Please clarify. Thank you.

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 ).
