Maharashtra Remote Sensing Application Centre


Rajiv gandhi national drinking water mission (rgndwm) phase iii and ground water quality mapping phase iv

    MRSAC, Nagpur in collaboration with Groundwater Survey and Development Agency (GSDA), Pune & National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO / Dept. of Space, Govt. of India, is preparing ground water prospects maps using remote sensing and GIS technology under Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission (RGNDWM) project. The project is sponsored by Department of Drinking Water Supply (DDWS), Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD). The ground water prospects maps have already been prepared for the Maharashtra state. The ground water prospects maps provide information on a) potential zones for the occurrence of ground water and b) site-specific recharge structures.

                General information on the ground water quality in terms of its potability and elements that are making the ground water non-potable, in case if the water is non-potable, are also being provided in the ground water prospects maps. The ground water quality information, as given in ground water prospects map is based on the well observation in the field / data collected through enquiry from the local people, not based on the analysis of ground water samples.
