Abstract

The study area comprises of Hebbal and Rachenahalli valley. The present condition of storm water drains, surface water bodies and the quality of the ground water has been studied in Yale mallappa Shetty Kere (YMSK) watershed. 1st order streams are encroached in developing of layouts and surface water bodies vanished due to urbanization. The study of toposheets (1:50,000) reveals YMSK consists of 86 Water bodies (WB) in 286 km2. The study of toposheets in 1:25,000 and Remote Sensing data reveals that YMSK consists of 195 WB (including tiny water bodies). The urbanized area covers the town places like satellite town Yalahanka in the North; Hebbal in the south-east and Krishna Rajapuram in the west. The effect of urbanization has created the havoc in managing and maintaining the storm water drains, surface water and quality of ground water. RS & GIS has effectively used in findings for streams encroachment & LU-LC process.
