Aquifer mapping is a process which includes the analysis of geological, geophysical, hydrological and chemical fields so as to characterize the quantity, quality and sustainability of the groundwater in the aquifers. You must have noticed that there has been a slight shift from groundwater development to groundwater management. With the help of aquifer mapping, an accurate and comprehensive picture of groundwater in India can be acquired as it will help in developing the plans for groundwater management. This will also help in achieving drinking water security, improvement in the irrigation facilities and in the sustainability of the water resources in the rural and urban areas of India. We can definitely say that aquifer mapping is one of the most important aspects that are looked for planning great adaptation strategies so as to meet the climate change in the area.
Therefore, the main objective of Amay Environmental Consultancies is not only to reach that defined goal, but also to participate in the groundwater management decision making.
The most important objective of aquifer mapping is to know and manage your aquifer. This will help in designing an aquifer mapping program so as to provide a simple and clear cut purpose of the ground water management. In addition to this, the aquifer mapping will not only remain an academic exercise but will also flow into the groundwater management program. This approach can help in integrating the ground water availability with the groundwater accessibility.
Some of the ends results of aquifer mapping are being described by Amay Environmental Consultancies services are as follows:
- Formation of the aquifer management unit would become much simpler
- Preparation of the aquifer management plans for the sustainability of the groundwater would be effective
- It would enable the involvement of the community and stakeholders who will help in management all the resources in an effective and efficient manner and will thereby contribute to the overall development.
- The participation of the stakeholders and communities will ensure sustainable cropping pattern which will contribute towards effective food security. It will help in understanding the aquifers at the community level.
- Scientific inputs and traditional methods would ensure sustainable groundwater Resource Management.
- The precise assessment of the functional Wells for agriculture, industries, drinking water purposes and more would become much simpler
- It would ensure that the loss or damage incurred because of the failure would be resilience.
- It will help in setting some of the norms, criteria and training module which will help in addressing local needs and subsequent up skilling of the groundwater management.
