Open wells – la suiteNovember 16, 2006
Back to our will to improve public awerness of open wells and groundwater table in Bangalore.
Things are happening ! The farm journalist Shree Padre
(www.farmedia.org/profiles/Padre.html) will write an article in a kanada paper to recommend to all the people owning an open well contacting the rainwater club ! We are aiming to count 1006 wells and collect all informations
about their health, their water and its use. We hope that every well owner understand
what can be the role their wells play in future and how important it will be to preserve
them functionally but also culturally. If you, dear virtual-reader, is a Bangalorean happy well owner, let us know your existence.
And as good news never come alone, the governement will also help financially for the chemical analysis of the wells waters in a lab.
Because public understanding of this huge underground reservoir is a first step toward a sustainable management of our water supply, and the use of open wells
maybe the best tool to reach it.
