Abstract: In the area under study and in Madhya Pradesh State too, the rural population greatly depend on tube wells fitted with hand pumps or power pumps to cater to their need of safe drinking water, since surface sources are either not available or too polluted. Indiscrimate exploitation of ground water particularly for irrigation purposes has resulted in nation wide excessive recession of ground water table adversely effecting the yield of drinking water sources and some times leading to total drying of tube wells, more so in summer season. The balance between allowable draft and natural recharge seem to have been disturbed beyond redemption by natural processes. Hence there is pressing need to address this problem immediately.
