Water demand is progressively increasing due to its use for agriculture, industries and domestic requirements. Wherever surface water storage or canal irrigation is absent or limited, there is a greater activity of groundwater extraction. In recent years the utilization of groundwater by digging wells has increased manifold due to availability of financial assistance from NABARD and other banking institutions. The density of irrigation wells has grown very critically in same watershed causing serious problems of water scarcity and other environmental conditions. The groundwater related problems of overexploitation have assumed an alarming position so as to require immediate remedial measures to address the situation.
