2. The Chronicle of a Groundwater Expert

What is the difference between groundwater basin management and groundwater management?

Groundwater Basin Management includes technological know-how such as how to control technically your basin, how to manage to reduce the remediation, deviation and how to manage to increase the storage capacity, i.e. groundwater budget like a banking account. It also involves groundwater hydraulics principles to determine the life expectancy of groundwater well, its discharge rate, discharge period and so on.

Giving guidelines for how many lifetimes of the tube well is allowed, how much water is allowed to discharge per hour, how much the cost of water meter per hour, etc. These all activities by dwellers and contractors, drillers recorded in the database (data bank) of state and division and finally Nationwide will be perfect.

4. Clarify Your Water with Drumstick Seeds

In Myanmar, people who live near these sources generally use surface water for domestic and even drinking purposes. Instead of using the turbid water directly, clarifying it with some kind of coagulants makes the water more clear and removes the impurities in it. The powdered seed of drumstick has coagulating properties that have been used for various aspects of water and wastewater treatment. Read more...
