Well-recharge technique in rural Rajasthan helps farmers fight water scarcity
By Indiatoday 03-Jul-2019
Where high temperature, dry weather and scant rainfall is proving to be a bane for farmers in Rajasthan, the well-recharge technique is helping them to channelise the wasted rain water for irrigation purposes.
Water expert and conservationist Amit Kumar spoke to India Today TV about the technique at length, "The texture of soil in the fields does not allow the wells to get recharged naturally. The water, which flows through the field, is generally not collected and remains unused. If we are able to divert that water into the well, then the wells can be recharged successfully."
"We are using this technique so as to ensure that dry wells and the wells with low water-level are recharged with rain water," said Amit Kumar.
The expert said, "This water recharge technique has helped many farmers to irrigate larger areas. It has also improved groundwater level, providing better quality of drinking water to people in rural areas."
So far, around 40 such well recharge structures have been built in rural areas in Jaipur and 17 have been built in Tonk district of Rajasthan.
