Pros of digging Borewell with a hope to get cauvery water soon

Postby snelgi » March 10th, 2018, 8:46 am

Hi,

I'm planning to start house construction in Akshaynagar, Begur end of this month and I'm in confusion over digging borewell with BWSSB already laid out pipes for Cauvery water in the layout as part of water to 110 villages, looking for suggestions based on your personal experiences..

Thanks,
Santosh

i feel there are no pros of digging borewell if the water sources are at 1000+ feet. for 1000+ feet we may have to spend 3 lakhs and there is no guaranty from anyone that we will get water for the next (at least) 2 -3 years.
borewell maintenance cost is more,any repair cost 7000-10000/-
i have built 5 houses and only for one house we choose borewell option and we are not facing any issue where borewell is not there, at all these places we have cauvery water.
if you have hope of getting Cauvery water in the next 2 to 3 years then i suggest you to not to go for borewell.

Hi,
My understanding about bore well is little different . The probability of water source is mere luck . Digging of bore well is not actually expensive but the casing pipe, motor, wire etc are 75% cost of complete bore well installation.
If you have confidence of getting good yield you can try digging and check. Don't install casing pipe unless you are confident about source.
I wonder why everyone are just dependent on cauvery, its not a reliable source in future. You should make provisions for rainwater sump and start using it directly and recharge the excess water to ground.
You can always built a separate large sump for rainwater and store it with basic filters, use it for flush and cleaning which is equal to 75% of your water consumption per day.

I fully support Praveen's view.

In the worst case of failure, you can use the same bore well as a Rainwater harvesting recharge point. Kaveri is not a solution for our water needs forever. Already plenty of Bangalore areas is not even getting Kaveri water Once a week since last 2 months.

Mr. Shivakumar, Resident of Bangalore west, has not at all taken the BWSSB Connection and is using only the Rain water collected during the monsoon season for the entire 365 days for his entire family needs from the last 18 years. Why not others follow the same ?

Hi,
I would like to share the practical data i could gather from my clients who are using rainwater sumps efficiently.

30x40 site - Rain water collection Terrace area 900 sft
Rainwater sump size - 9k ltr
Family size - 4nos

Time taken to fill the sump is just two days of recent rains (summer rains) , They where using the rain water for 10 days very efficiently ( flush, cleaning ). In rainy season Kaveri consumption has come down by 18k ltr per month :)

I strongly suggest everyone to build at least 10k ltr rainwater sump for a 30x40 site.
