Abstract

Over the years, number of people, industries and agricultural practices are on the rise and so is the demand of water supply. With monsoon being the primary source of water for agriculture, its conservation and proper utilization has become the paramount need of time. For conservation, rainwater harvesting technique may be used whereby rainwater is captured at the time of downpour, stored above the ground and/or used to charge underground water that may be utilized later for various purposes. As groundwater resources are depleting day by day, rainwater harvesting is the only way to fulfill the increasing demand of water. It will also improve water quality. This study aims at providing better and cost effective water conservation system by the use of artificial recharge. L.D. college of engineering is spread over 52 acres and rainwater harvesting, one of the methods of artificial recharge, will be carried out in this area as there are 11 blocks with large roof are suitable for this application. It was concluded that groundwater level and quality had increased while cost of water was reduced.
