Artificial Recharge Against Sea Water Intrusion & Secured Ground Water

Tags: check dams saltwater intrusion hydrology recharge ponds rainwater harvesting ground water depletion


The coastal area of Tamil Nadu is suffering of heavy over exploitation of groundwater due to lack of awareness of the population on the limited resources, but also because of a lack of management of the resources. Through time, this has created a heavy depletion of the groundwater and consequently a severe risk of seawater intrusion, which cannot be turned back once occurring during normal human time scale. Aurovillle Water Harvest works on  a series of projects with the objective to recharge ground water through artificial methods and allow for larger irrigation of lands from surface water flow.
