How well are our wells?

April 25, 2007

Open wells have a 5000 year history. They liberated humankind from

the tyranny of rivers and lakes. When humans found that you could

dig a hole in the ground and get water that must have been a Eureka

moment. This hole in the ground lined with stone came to be called a

well. Wonder why. We are on a journey to find out what happened to

the well. Do they exist? How do people use it? Are there new ones

being built? How can they be revived?  Do they fit into a city’s water

management strategy? Surprisingly their relevance seems to have

ben preserved and increased all over the country. We now have to

revive this technology quickly through a process of recharging

rainwater into the shallow aquifer.
