Abstract

Mahesana district is facing presently acute ground water problem. Day-by-day ground water level is going down requiring systematic study for the delineation of aquifers in the area. It has been observed that ground water level of unconfined aquifer has gone below 400m depth at most of the places. Ground water table is going down by 2 to 4 meters per year. Mahesana area is almost flat and it is occupied by mainly alluvial soil consisting of sand, silt and clay. Sub surface geohydrological conditions have been evaluated with the help of drilling data in GIS environment using Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics technology. Various thematic layers like Landuse, Geology, Soil, Drainage etc. have been prepared and integrated with the subsurface groundwater data for the assessment and evaluation of ground water conditions of the area.
