Résumé
Water is life’ is an ancient saying in India. This has remained true till to-day and would remain so as long as life exists on the earth. The early day use of water was confined to drinking, bathing, cattle-rearing, irrigating small fields and navigation. With the rapid development of human civilization, particularly after the industrial revolution, the demand on water has been increasing .for multifarious utilities. Large-scale irrigation and industrialisation in the present century have made water a scarce and priceless commodity. This could be perceived in the launching by United Nations of International Drinking Water and Sanitation Decade during 1980-90. In India toe, the Government had a crash programme in 1986 on Technology Mission on drinking water in villages and related water management. Surface water commonly finds extensive use. However, in arid and semi-arid regions where rainfall is confined to a few months of the year and in regions where there is no network of canals for irrigation chere is a likelihood of insufficient surface water. There is,therefore, a need for the exploration of groundwater. This Thesis is a contribution on groundwater studies of Adila basin in the Deccan Volcanics around Solapur, Maharashtra. It has focussed on the assessment of groundwater potential and its exploration. Geological, geomorphological, geohydrological and groundwater modeling studies have been carried out to evaluate groundwater potential, whereas geophysical method, namely electrical resistivity sounding, has been used to recommend the location of borewells in different villages in Adila basin. The Adila basin consists of two lava flow units with frequent occurences of red boles as a marker bed between them. This forms a potential groundwater zone.
