Borewells are the major source of clean water in most of rural communities in India. Hundreds of people reside on the soil mounds located at higher altitudes from the streams. Basalt rock existing beneath the earth crust of the region has been the major contributor of reduced water storage capacity and rain water absorption thereby reducing the groundwater table.
Community bore wells and open wells supported by the government are yielding insufficient water to cater to the drinking water needs (especially in summer) of the entire community. Bala Vikasa, through its Water Conservation activities has been recharging such borewells to improve access to clean drinking water and increase the groundwater table.
Bore Well Recharge
Thousands of families have access to clean drinking water closer to their homes with increased groundwater storage capacities.
