Abstract

Ground water assessment has been made quantitatively by hydraulic budget method in the study area. It is a quantitative measure of the balance between the total water gains and losses of the basin for a particular period of time. The hydrograph analysis clearly reveals the fluctuations in the water levels have direct relationship with the intensity and amount of rainfall in the catchment area. Groundwater balance studies are carried out by taking into consideration aspects such as rainfall, runoff, percolation, evapotranspiration, groundwater recharge, discharge, change in soil moisture, and changes in groundwater storage and by following the norms recommended by the Groundwater Estimation Committee (GEC) of Central Ground Water Board, India and groundwater estimation methodology
