Groundwater is one of the most important natural resources of the region which is the principal source of drinking water for most of the villages in the study district. Ground water systems are very dynamic and adjusting continuously to short term and long-term changes in rainfall, temperature, ground water extraction, land use etc.
In 2017-18 “Bajaj Water Conservation Project” (BWCP) has been launched in Gangapur and Paithan taluka of Aurangabad district in Maharashtra. Since then, the various water conservation activities are being implemented by the JBGVS and with the help of other partner organizations (AFARM, DSC, BIAF, AFPRO, and BISLD) in the villages of Gangapur and Paithan taluka of the district. To evaluate the impact in the ground water level due to the various water conservation activities over the time of project implementation (2017-2020) the GIS based study has been carried out.
