Bank filtration to improve the groundwater resources
Time period: 2019 – 2021
Funding agency: DAAD – DST
Cooperation Partner: Vellore Institute of Technology, India
Description: India is a water-stressed nation, and the demand for water increases constantly. The potential for Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) to augment groundwater resources and riverbank filtration for public water supply is a much-needed method throughout the nation. The impact of riverbank filtration in peri-urban areas with agricultural activities on the groundwater quality is less investigated. The present study aims to assess the impact of bank filtration through MAR structures such as check dams on improving the groundwater resources.
