Seeking advise on this topic Digging a bore well Vs. Revamping Half-Dug Traditional Well… In front of me is our ancestral property always a rainfed farming without chemicals ( never seen chemicals ) … We did do a 440 feet bore well with enough water but unfortunately without power running on diesel is not that productive for farming though the water is used for the Malai Vembu Tress ( Melia Dubia approx. 200 in the form of Drip Irrigation from the raised tank filled occasionally with Diesel run engine).
We’ve a half dug well ( as of now @ 17 feet depth … actually 20 feet but rain water and mud collected over a period time covers 3 feet… This well is 12 feet x 8 feet in size ( see picture before and after monsoon )… We did come across a company which can dig 6 feet x 4 feet area for a cost Rs. 2000 per feet… My confusion is to go for digging just this 6’ x 4’ for another 30 feet depth costing approx… Rs. 65,000 … Interested in knowing any other machineries or companies digging wells before moving ahead… Main reason for digging well is to use pedal pumps if we are able to get more water…
