Abstract

A strategy is proposed to use the groundwater which is likely to be flowing along lineaments connecting the western water-surplus areas to the water-deficit areas of the east. To test this hypothesis a number of sites for bore wells were selected along lineaments; the average yield of these was 4-5 times higher than that of wells outside the lineaments. Since some of these lineaments cross the water divide and extend up to the water-surplus west, it is inferred that there is a flow of water across the divide. By proper management of the supply of water from these wells situated on the lineament, a permanent solution can be worked out for drought mitigation. -from Authors
