Abstract

Natural replenishment of the vast supply of underground water occurs very slowly; therefore, excessive continued exploitation of groundwater at a rate greater than this replenishment causes declining groundwater levels in the long term and if not corrected, leads to eventual mining of groundwater. To increase the natural supply of groundwater, artificial recharge of groundwater basins is becoming increasingly important in groundwater management and particularly in situations where the conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater resources is being considered.
