Water Bores Brisbane
May 3, 2019
A few lakh households in Pune depend on groundwater. Municipal supply is inadequate in many areas. Several properties have bore wells while others have to depend on tankers, which are also filled at bore wells.
For several thousand people in the city, the management of the bore well is a year-round task. They have direct interactions with their society bore well – coaxing it to yield water, managing the pump, setting up timers for periodic pumping, cleaning the bore hole, and generally spending at least a few hours every month discussing the situation of groundwater, the depth of the neighbours’ bore wells, and the health of their own bore well. And the fact is that there are more and more bore wells, and people’s experience shows that the water levels seem to be dropping year after year.
