Ground Water Cell
 

  

            Activities of the scheme:

                     The main activities of the scheme are:

     Monitoring of water level

     Ground Water Assessment

     Estimates for tubewell loaning

     Free service to farmers.

        Location of tubewell sites

        Optimum tubewell depth

        Design of tubewell assembly

        Development of tubewell

     Micro level survey to identify potential pockets

     Selection and evaluation of watershed.

     Monitoring of rainguage stations.

     Training of farmers for Minor Irrigation schemes.

     Conducting free geophysical surveys to identify and demarcate the aquifer zones for installation of tubewells.

     Pump efficiency tests to improve the efficiency pump sets.

     Providing Ground water availability certificate to Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) for formulation of tubewells loaning schemes.

     Besides above activities, various thematic maps and technical reports connected with micro level, Hydro geological, Geophysical survey and ground water assessments are prepared.

Accelerated Groundwater Recharge scheme

183, 52, 22, 88, 73, 31, 119, 24, 12 and 44 numbers of rainwater harvesting structures were constructed during the year 2005-06, 2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11,2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 respectively. A total no. of 648** structures has been constructed upto 2014-15. A target for construction of 50 rain water harvesting structures has been fixed for the year 2015-16.

Future strategies

 

      Propagation for change in cropping pattern from more water intensive to less water intensive crops.

      Propagation for conjunctive use of surface and ground water in highly saline areas.

      Artificial recharge in water declining areas

      Educating drillers/farmers for installation of tubewells on scientific lines.
