Bore wells



Over View

As part of our holistic strategy to meeting the needs of the poor, we have identified the need for accessing clean water' as a priority in many villages around Maharashtra where the government supply of water is scarce. The provision of potable water can have a significant impact on a whole rural community.

NLMET has dug 51 Bore wells since 2003. Clean potable water is a basic human need, but the reality in a vast, mainly rural country like India this basic need is unmet for a large number of communities. Drilling bore wells in remote places where there is no water supply from the government ensures that communities receive potable water for their daily needs.

The Need

It is scientifically proved that 80% of diseases in developing countries like India are caused due to consumption of contaminated water.

The people living in Mumbai and in Maharashtra face a huge problem with receiving clean drinking water due to in sufficient rains in the last few years. The rivers and the dams are not full and therefore unable to supply water to the huge population.

There are villages in Maharashtra that currently have no supply of clean drinking municipal water. Villages like these are being prioritised by NLMET, as we seek to drill bore wells to meet their most basic unmet need.

The drilling of bore wells for the provision of water has been a blessing to the underprivileged in the following areas:
