British Petroleum, CBM Block, Birbhum…….contd. Approach & Findings • Detailed hydrogeological and hydrological investigation has been carried out using tools such as remote sensing, GIS and advanced analytical techniques at various levels for run off computations, • Suitable areas for ground water development, rain water harvesting and artificial recharge structures have been identified. • Surface water availability and surface runoff being generated is assessed in entire study area which is divided into number of watersheds using the drainage network. • Area of interest lies in the watershed of KurdhabhaliNala , covers major part of the project area offering good prospect of water harvesting .
British Petroleum, CBM Block, Birbhum…….contd. Approach & Findings • Watershed has been divided and demarcated into 11 micro watersheds considering the lowest order of drainage network. • The monthly surface water run off computed for each micro watershed and about 10 Million Cubic Meter (MCM) ) of water is assessed as run off from the entire watershed in the four monsoon months. • Water harvesting structures designed to harness only 20 to 25% of the flow to the tune of 2 to 2.5 MCM so as to keep minimum flow in the downstream as well as to maintain the ecological balance of the area.
