The Central Ground Water Board has released an atlas marking priority areas for water conservation and ground water replenishment.
The atlas provides detailed data on 14 principal and 42 major aquifiers across the country as well as providing in depth analysis about the state of aquifiers in six states including Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Meghalaya and Tamil Nadu.
Using these maps as a visual indicator, the Central Ground Water Board has outlined where and how it plans to manage aquifiers across the country, both at the national level as well as the state level. The visual data displayed in this atlas also pinpoints crucial areas earmarked for water conservation and development efforts.
