Résumé partiel
Jaipur also known as Pink City is a popular tourist place. It lies between north latitudes 26°46’30":27"02" and longitudes 75°35’:75°55’ covering a geographical area of 646 sq. kms. in the east central part of Rajashtan. The area experiences rainy season during the months of June and September with an average of 65.63mm. During summers highest temperature goes upto 45°C and during winters lowest temperature is S^C. During major part of the year the aii :’ isv generally dry. The relative humidity is generally over 60%. Climate here is semiarid with high evapo-transpiration rate. It comprises almost flat plain land with clusters of sand dunes in the south-western part and a long rocky ridge. There is no major river or canal in the area. It is mainly drained by a Nalla known as Amanishah Nalla which joins Mendha River in the south at Sanganer block outside the urban limits. There are two surface water bodies Jalmahal and Tal Katora which are small water reservoirs only. Jaipur is an industrial area hence most of its part is covered by commercial buildings which have reduced the land area for agriculture. Soils are alluvium sand, silt, clay with some kankar. Total infiltration rate in soils is 17-18 cm/hour. The area suffering from depletion of water levels and quality deterioration needs the water resources to be managed properly. Although recharge to groundwater is being done in the area by ponds and tanks and water harvesting schemes but there is still need of some other recharge schemes.
