Objectif
The main objective of this study is to investigate the hydrogeology of the ,Salem sub-basin and to assess its geological formation, groundwater potential and quality of groundwater for domestic, industrial and agricultural purposes. The study is based on geohydrological conditions employing various techniques such as geophysical, geochemical, remote sensing and hydrogeological studies. Salem district is known for its scarce water resources in view of low annual rain fall, absence of perennial water, flow in the Thirumanimuthar river. Under these conditions of poor surface water resources the next step is to seek sub-surface water resources for the requirement of the district. The author has taken the study of Salem sub-basin and investigated the hydrogeological conditions using detailed geological, geomorphological, geophysical, geochemical and remote sensing data. An integrated approach has been made to identify the favourable areas for groundwater resources with the available data. Hydrogeochemistry has also been used to study the quality of groundwater in the sub-basin and the same has been classified for drinking and irrigation purposes.
