ABSTRACT

 

The present study is mainly covered with alluvium, dolerite, shale and sandstone of kaimur formation. Groundwater occurs at shallow depth under water table conditions within the alluvium, weathered and fractured sandstone. The depth to water table below ground level in the district during pre- monsoon ranges from 2.90-12.80m. but the same shows a range of 2.0-11.30 m during the post monsoon. High fluctuation of water table is observed in mostly sanstone and alluvium lithology. The various thematic maps integrated and overlapping technique were proved to be very efficient in assessing the groundwater potential for exploration and development purposes of any area.

 

Keywords : Groundwater movement, Water table, Well inventory, Static water level (SWL), Pre and Post monsoon data.
