Oldest form of Water Wells widely used in India, i was fascinated by the greens, the weeds and strings that wrap the well and the green leaves layer which seals the fresh water inside. Although this well is not used for drinking water we use them regularly for irrigation purposes. The tiny holes which we make on the side walls of this well below surface area would channel the water underground to fill in each time we take from it.
A water well is an structure created in the ground by excavation, digging, driving, boring, or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers. The well water is drawn by a paddle/motor pump, or using containers, such as buckets, that are raised mechanically or by hand. Wells can vary greatly in depth, water volume, and water quality. Well water typically contains more minerals in solution than surface water and may require treatment to soften the water.
