ACTIVITIES GROUND WATER DEPARTMENT AT DISTRICT PORTAL :
|1. Ground Water Monitoring||
Monitoring of groundwater levels and quality through a network of observation wells, stream flow check points and improved network of Piezometers and water quality are regularly monitored to know the changes in groundwater regime.
A network of dug wells established to monitor shallow depth to water level with a network of 28 wells in RDS Command area.
2. Ground Water Assessment
|Estimation of groundwater resource at village level bi-annually with available data from concern Department.|
1. Selection of Wells sites:
The department takes up integrated hydro geological and Geophysical investigations for selection of well sites referred by various government organizations viz Scheduled castes Co-operative society, Scheduled Tribes Society and Non-Government organizations and individuals.
Department also taken up investigations as and when referred by Mandal Administration as per WALTA Act.
2. Artificial Recharge Structures:
In order to augment the depleting ground water resources, it is essential that the surplus monsoon runoff is conserved and recharged to augment ground water resources. The basic purpose of artificial recharge of ground water is to restore supplies from aquifers depleted due to excessive ground water development.
The groundwater Department is carrying out feasibility studies of various artificial recharge structure like Percolation tanks Check dams etc. referred by concerned executing agencies like Irrigation department, Panchayat Raj department etc
|4. Drilling of exploratory||Drilling of exploratory-cum production bore wells in Scheduled caste and Scheduled Tribes lands to create irrigation potential under Special Component Sub Plan programme and Tribal Sub Plan programme.|
|5. Environmental Clearances||Environmental clearance (a) Industries (Groundwater) (b) Impact of Sand mining on groundwater regime.|
|6||Research and Development studies with area specific- Non Pilot studies under Mission kakatiya programme (at present studies are being taken up in Jogulamba Gadwal District).|
