Title

FARM POND - THE BEST SOLUTION FOR WATER CONSERVATION IN RURAL AREA

Abstract

India is the country of villages with large population living in the rural areas. In the hilly areas due to high velocity of water, soil conservation is a tedious job. If rainwater harvesting is done in these areas, soil will get conserved as well as the ground water storage will be increased. The study is undertaken to develop an appropriate technology for soil conservation and to verify the increase in the ground water storage in such area. This gives dual benefit of soil conservation as well as ground water recharge for the area thus saving the area from severe soil loss as well as increasing the water availability below the ground surface, thus fulfilling the water demand of the village and protecting the top fertile soil from getting washed away due to rainfall. Considering the topographical features of a small plot of area 2 hectares of Kaneri watershed situated in Kolhapur District, Maharashtra, the structures for water conservation had been implemented in it in June 2011. The structures included gulley plugs on existing water stream followed by the farm pond at its end along with farm terraces and continuous contour trenches surrounding the water stream. These practical evidences proved the positive impact of watershed development structures on water conservation and ground water recharge. Similar measures were taken in KIT campus in Gokul Shirgaon as per its topographical and hydrological situations and the results were evaluated.
