Objectifs
Geohydrological studies in South-East part of Buldhana district aim at finding out the reasons of poor groundwater occurrence in this region, determining geological conditions favorable and unfavorable for percolation, making suggestions for increasing the groundwater potential of the study area and evaluating favorable effects of the watershed management programmes undertaken. Recent techniques like remote sensing and geographical information system (GIS) have not been used so far by any researcher in this region. Remote sensing and GIS has been used extensively in the research area for the first time for the geohydrological characterization of basalt rocks. With this hypothesis, the geohydrological characters of the rocks present in the study area were studied and groundwater potential map has been prepared to find out the optimal solution to the problem of water scarcity. South-East part of Buldhana district receives adequate rainfall. But even after the adequate precipitation water scarcity does persist in some areas (Table 1.3 : Rainfall data). The topography of the study area is rugged, hilly and undulated therefore the amount of the rainfall received by this area goes away in the form of runoff and almost all precipitation is drained along the slopes of the hills and meets in to the Penganga river. There is very less scope for the rain water to percolate in to the ground because of the rapid runoff and irrigation through groundwater is hampered. Hence the people of these areas face scarcity of water in summer as well as in winter for irrigation and in some villages for drinking also.
