Abstract

The Ground water is a most valued universal wealth supporting the human well-being, along with ecosystem. It has become a significant and reliable cause of water supplies in both urban and rural areas under varying climatic conditions across the countries (Todd and Mays, 2005), due to its intrinsic qualities. Out of 37 M km3 of freshwater anticipated to be available on the earth, the ground water is about 22%, which represents around 97% of freshwater that is accessible for domestic use (Foster, 1998). In India, over 91% and 30% of population of rural, and urban respectively, depending on the ground water for the drinking and domestic purpose (1996, Reddy). The ground water is becoming critical economic tool in progressing Nations & can supply to the poor people at lower rates more efficiently (IWMI, 2001).
