Topic: Salt water

I am constructing a house in Chennai, pallikaranai.

The ground water in this area is very salty if we go for a borewell beyond 30 feet. So I was advised by nearby neighbors to dig a well. As per that I dug a well up to 21 feet. The water is comparatively less salty.

1.       Apart from rain water harvesting, kindly suggest me what are all the steps I should do to improve the quality of water in the well.

2.       If I plan for a small water treatment plant for the well water, kindly advise what are the steps I should do and what type of treatment method I should adopt. (suggest on cost basis also).

3. Any other

Dear Muthuraj
        You should contact water treatment department, they shall tell you about water treatment after taking the sample of your well water.
