A distance of at least 6 metres from the septic tank and approximately 10 metres from the soak pit should be maintained. The bore well should have a cement or rubber sealing, where the overburdened casing ends and the bore hole starts in the hard rock. For tube wells, sealing with cement should be up to the first clay zone around the casing pipe. The casing pipe should also be at least a feet above the flood level so that it doesn’t create any problems during the rainy season. This can be applied in the case of both tube and bore well casing.
