Abstract


The reservoir is silted with the clay, silt and sand particles derived from the basalts in the adjoining area of the catchment. The 105 acre of the area of the reservoir became the grazing land for cattle. The siltation is about 15 to 20 ft in the reservoir. The patches of water bodies in the form of depressions are the sources of drinking water for cattle only. The capacity of the reservoir is totally reduced because of the siltation. The percolating conditions of reservoir reduced due excessive silting. The water table level in the wells in the vicinity started declining. All the dug wells and bore wells became dry. The villages earlier having sufficient water supply are now requiring the tankers of water during summer of 2004 and 2005. After the desilting and removal of weeds in the year 2006 the situation is totally different, the reservoir is filled with water and groundwater level in the wells is raised.
