The present study aims at the assessment of groundwater potential and an attempt was made to assess the groundwater balance using the water table fluctuation method in which all the components of the water balance equation are know and the only component which is considered unknown is the rainfall recharge. Most of the inputs were derived from the satellite remote sensing data. Twenty eight rain gauge stations and fifty observation wells falling within and outside the periphery of the sub-basin were considered for groundwater assessment. The total annual recharge includes recharge form (i) Monsoon rainfall, (ii) Non-monsoon rainfall, (iii) Hilly areas (iv) Surface water-bodies (v) groundwater irrigation, (vi) Seepage from canals and (vii) Canal irrigation. The total annual draft consists of water applied to the crops and water consumed for domestic and industrial use. Difference in the annual draft and the net annual results compared to the other methods. © 2011 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY. All rights reserved.
