 Hi!
 
 My  friend  has  a  farm,  and  a  water  diviner  was  taken  to  the  place.  He  identified  3  spots.  In  the  spot  where  the  most  water  was  to  be  found,  the  borewell  guys  drilled  down  upto  750  ft...  and  still  no  water!  Water  was  supposed  to  be  found  between  350-450  ft.
 
 Now,  another  diviner  went  to  my  friend's  farm,  and  located  yet  another  spot  where  there  was  supposed  to  be  water.  He  says,  that  all  the  other  3  spots  had  only  a  small  stream  flowing  below...  but  the  new  point  that  he  identified  had  a  junction  where  3  streams  meet.    Rolling Eyes  
 
 I  would  like  to  know  if  there  is  any  POSITIVE  and  scientific  method  to  locate  spots  where  there  is  water.  What  I've  observed  is  that  these  diviners  use  twigs  and  twirl  it  in  their  hands,  or  some  such  thing.  I  know  how  this  works,  and  am  not  scoffing  at  it,  but  I  am  looking  for  a  more  concrete  method.  
 
 Also...  the  new  diviner  told  my  friend  that  if  he  doesn't  drill  in  the  new  spot  immediately,  the  source  of  water  may  shift.  I  am  unable  to  comprehend  how  this  would  happen.  
 
 Please  help  me  to  understand  how  all  this  works,  and  also  if  any  of  you  know  of  any  good  geologist  in  Bangalore,  please  put  him  across  to  me.  Sorry  if  I  used  the  wrong  terminologies...  I  am  still  trying  to  figure  all  this  out.  Smile  
 
 Regards,
 Jenny

 assuming  that  you  dont  have  any  hills  with  uncommon  layering  of  porous  water-trapping  rocks  with  non  porous  rocks  around,  the  water  table  should  be  at  a  uniform  depth  for  a  given  region.  water  diviner  is  another  word  for  con  artist.

 LOL.  The  adjacent  land  is  rocky  and  hilly.  It's  more  of  a  quarry.

 Dolphy,
 When  I  was  studying  in  Belgaum,  my  room  mate  was  from  Shimoga,  (these  days  he  is  in  Bangalore),  this  fellow  used  to  tell  me  of  people  who  locate  water  using  sticks  and  stuff  like  that.  
 He  told  me  that  these  people  are  blessed  and  the  reputed  ones  pay  for  the  drilling  if  no  water  is  found  at  the  depth  they  claimed  water  would  be.
 Also,  that  they  charge  huge  fee.
 We  tried  figuring  out  scientific  explanation  to  this,  but  failed.
 Only  way  to  determine  water  body  under  ground  is  by  use  of  sound  waves,  sonar  technology.  But  then  how  they  do  it  remains  a  mystery.  I  had  actually  forgotten  about  it,  but  now  that  you  mentioned  it,  I  am  curious  all  over  again.
 We  up  here  in  norther  part  of  the  country  don't  have  such  people.  Nor  here  it  is  required  to  used  such  heavy  duty  drill  machines.  The  land  is  soft  here.  
     I  haven't  seen  people  not  finding  water  when  they  drill  here.  Water  will  be  found,  only  thing  what  matters  here  is  the  depth.  If  the  water  table  is  high(if  not  many  people  in  your  locality  have  dug  borewells,  then  good  chances  are  that  water  will  be  found  close  to  the  surface,  else  not
 
 lets  hope  we  get  an  answer  to  the  what  we  seek
