Abstract:

The theme of this paper focused on the water resource availability and demand coupled with projection for future in various sector economy of Central Narmada Valley (CNV) in Madhya Pradesh. The study provides the information about water balance. National Commission on Agriculture (NCA) has given a procedure to compute water budget of a state based on rainfall and water demand by various sectors like crop water management, domestic livestock demand and water demand towards industries. As per NCA guidelines the major input for the water balance of an area is its normal rainfall and when it multiplied by the geographical area it gives quantum of water generated. The annual normal rainfall is 1200 to 1600 mm. The Water available for utilization and demand at zonal level is 728644 ha m and 565313 ha m respectively. As for as the excess water concerns the zone has 163331 ha m of surplus water and this is 29 % of total utilization At block level the per unit hectare water availability in Hoshangabad district is 32 cm while it is 27.5 cm in Narsingpur district. About 40% and 60% Utilizable water resources availability in Narsinghpur and Hoshangabad District respectively. Seoni malwa block of Hoshangabad district in zone level has maximum demand of water has a value 86979.74 ha m. The industrial demand is computed as 6% of available water thus total zonal demand comes out as 565313 ha m. The relationship between water resource demand and supply is discussed and water balance in the various provinces determined.
