Résumé partiel
Inspite of Orissa having vast water resources with respect to both surface water and groundwater, mismanagement, injudicious use and vagaries of nature have led to water scarcity at times in many parts of the state. The present level ofgroundwater development in Orissa is only 10%. Hence there is scope of utilization of this vast resource. The present work has been undertaken to understand the role played by geomorphological, lithological and climatological factors leading to hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical set up that govern the occurrence, distribution, recharge-discharge and quality of groundwater in the Rairakhol Subdivision ofSambalpur district, Orissa. The study area i,e, the Rairakhol sub-division lies at the south eastern part of Sambalpur district of Orissa which is bounded by the north latitudes 20° 56’ 0" to 21° 25’ 30" and east longitudes 83° 59’ 30" to 84° 45’ 30" and falls in the Survey of India Toposheet Nos. 730/4,0/7, C/8, C/11, C/12, D/1 & D/5. The total geographical area of the study area is around 1166.89 sq.km. The Rairakhol sub-division is divided into 2 administrative blocks namely Rairakhol and Naktideol. The area under study i,e, Rairakhol sub-division has a good network of roads and is well connected to other parts of the state. Statistical analysis of rainfall data suggests that mild to normal drought is common in this area. The total population of the study area as per 2001 census is 1,21,666. The area enjoys a sub-tropical climate having three distinct seasons such as winter, summer and rainy. The area is characterized by extreme climate with very hot summer with temperature reaching as high as 47° C and very clod winter with temperature as low as 5° C. The average annual rainfall in the area is 1543.5 mm with average of 72 rainy days (as per the Indian Meteorological Department).
