Application of Groundwater Prospecting Maps

The Groundwater Prospecting Maps (GWP) were developed under the Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Project by the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) in Hyderabad with the support from the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation (MoDWS) and the Central Groundwater Board (CGWB) and have been used in the preparation of Drinking Water Security Plans.

Groundwater Prospecting maps provide users with information on the spatial extent of different hydro-geological formations, their specific yields and the depth of groundwater levels. This information has been used in estimating the total availability of water in the Gram Panchayat, potential sites for development of groundwater and sites for effective groundwater recharge and rainwater harvesting (soil and water conservation measures).
