People spend huge amounts for mineral water; Flood impact on wells still exists
Thrissur: The scientific study jointly conducted by Mathrubhumi and Geologic Innovations headquartered in Thrissur on the impact of flood in water wells in Thrissur has been completed. The survey and other data collection processes were completed with the help of 10 colleges in the district.
The college students conducted studies at various places in the district and presented their findings in front of the jury in a one-day long programme at Mathrubhumi Thrissur Office on Tuesday.
There are many wells in the district which are unfit to use even after cleaning multiple times. About 90 percent of the population are still unaware of how to perform chlorination and super chlorination.
It was shocking to know that numerous wells are remaining uncleaned after flood in the district. Also people have no idea of how to use water in the well after the deluge. There are households which spends huge amount of money for mineral water as their wells have turned unusable.
The study reveals the unheard information about the condition of water in the well after the floods. The summary of the detailed report will be handed over to the state government on Friday. Minister for agriculture V. S. Sunil Kumar will receive the report at the programme ‘Jalamithram’ to be held Paramekkavu Agrasala on March at 10 am.
Geologic Innovations MD and CEO Ranjith P. Dinesh will give a lecture on the topic ‘how to scientifically clean and use water in wells’. The programme is open to public also. Eleven teams from ten colleges had participated in the survey.
Thrissur St. Mary’s College, Kodungallur Pulloott KKTM College, Thrissur Government Engineering College, Thrissur PG Centre College, Elthuruthu St. Aloysius College, Chalakudy Sacred Hearts College, Karukutti SCMS Engineering College, Wadakkancherry Vyasa College, Kunnamkulam Vivekananda College and Kodakara Sahridaya College presented their study reports before the jury.
