Abstract : The Kulhan .nala basin
Raipur, spreads over in an area
is more or less plain and made of nearly
horizontal sedimentaries of Chhattisgarh supergroup, comprising limestone, shale
and sandstone. In general, the lithounits show
poor primary porosity. However,
have developed secondary porosity and permeability and locally
as good aquifers and
will also offer
artificial recharging.A high degree of decline
in water levels is indicative of poor recharge
and~or a high degree of draft,
is observed in the kulhan nala basin. It is, therfore, necessary to undertake the work of artificial recharging of the groundwater reserves of
the area in order
for drinking, agricultural and
help mitigate the drought
.caused due to
monsoon failure. The paper discusses the augmentation of groundwater potential by Implementing
different techniques of artificial
recharging, keeping in view the topographic and geological aspects of the site.
Keywords: Artificial recharge, Kulhan nala, Raipur district.
