WE ARE THE TREND SETTER

In the current era of the water crisis, groundwater resource is proven to be the most reliable and sustainable resource for to match all the water demands. Groundwater resource became more reliable resource in arid areas like Kachchh district where drinking and domestic water as well livelihood water requirements are fulfilled by groundwater. The proportion of surface water source is much lesser than the total water requirement. Groundwater is accessible at decentralized level. These all make the resource more fragile and under pressure of exploitation and has led to issues like water table depletion, quality deterioration and salinity intrusion. Despite many programmatic interventions at different levels, some gaps have been felt such as lack of aquifer science in management decision making, active engagement of community, inefficient techniques and technological alternatives specific to location/aquifer and integrated planning and collaboration.

WHAT WE DO…

The project is being implemented in two different scaled areas; (01) Kankavati sandstone aquifer spread area along the coastal track and (02) Intensive program demonstration in Cluster of villages of Munda-Mandvi block. Kankavati sandstone is a coastal aquifer speaded over 4000 km2 area covering 04 coastal blocks. The aquifer fulfills water requirements of drinking, domestic and agriculture for 350 villages. The region has large scale industrial development. Due to regional level common resource, the aquifer is under stress of water table depletion. As the aquifer located on coast, groundwater has been deteriorated due to sea water salinity. Therefore, on regional scale, awareness, advocacy and groundwater monitoring is being carried out. While entire PGWM concept has been implemented in cluster of 19 villages of Mandvi block. The project is named as K-MARC (Kankavati Managed Aquifer Recharge through Community).[…]
