Abstract:

The present study was conducted to find status of water resource use and strategies for its future. The study was conducted in the five revenue districts of upper Narmada basin. In order to assess the status of water resource utilization in UNB first of all net ground water availability was computed, using annual recharge values. Methodology supported and recommended by G.E.C. (1997) was followed. Revenue blocks were taken as unit for assessment. To estimate the ground water recharge water level fluctuation method was used. So obtained annual ground water recharge was used to arrive at ground water potential using the existing ground water withdrawal. A strategy is proposed for the development of potential available as, it should be developed up to seventy percent only to keep the block in safe category as per the criteria. Keeping this strategy in view, utilizable ground water potential was assessed. The proposed ground water development for future irrigation was obtained in a phased manner through construction of different types of ground water structures. This number of feasible ground water structures was decided as per the hydro-geological situations. Further the additional area which can be brought under irrigation with these additional wells has also been computed as per the GEC norms. Separate planning for utilizable water resource of each district has been made. Thus, the present status of water resources utilization in UNB has been determined and planning for its future development is made. Suiting to this, crop plan for each district has made. After the assessment of ground water potential and stage of ground water development areas having ground water development more than 65 per cent are considered as stressed areas. These areas need artificial recharge today and in future also.
