Abstract

The Current research focuses on the groundwater table evaluation for the management of groundwater resources for theutilization of drinking, domestic usage, agricultural activities and amount of subsurface water available. In winter season spatial distribution map shows that the shallow water table level falls less than 10m comprising the area 24.09 sq.km. The spatial distribution map for northeast monsoon season shows the shallow water table covers an area 21.44 sq.km. The annual average groundwater level map shows that shallow water table covers an area of 14.03sq.km and moderate water table level comprises 108.92 sq.km. The moderate groundwater table level extends from south to south east zone. The total study area is 257.07 sq.km, out of this 24.09 sq.km i.e 9.3% have shallow groundwater table level and 117.8 sq.km have moderate water table level i.e 45.82% falls in this area during the winter season. In this analysis the shallow water table level is located in the southern part, so the resource management can be effectively done in region.
