Abstract:

The ground water recharge of Nadia and Murshidabad districts of the state of West Bengal were estimated and compared to withdrawal of it for the purpose of different sectarian use viz. agriculture, industrial and domestic. It was evaluated that the utilizable annual ground water resources of Nadia and Murshidabad district were 590.75 MCM and 769.25 MCM respectively and also found that the net annual ground water draft of Nadia and Murshidabad were 1157.1 MCM and 1405.6 MCM respectively. So it has been clearly found that the district of Nadia and Murshidabad were affected of over exploitation of ground water to the extent of 566.35 MCM and 636.35 MCM respectively. The stage of groundwater development of Nadia and Murshidabad were found 195.87% and 182.72% respectively, i.e. more than 100% which also indicated the area as an overexploited zone. The districts are also noted for cultivation of high water requiring boro rice. Either the boro cultivation area needs to be reduced or artificial ground water recharge need to be encouraged. Immediate measures are required to reduce the ground water use or to increase the ground water recharge to have a balance between use and availability and to protect the areas against the possible environmental disaster.
