Ground Water Year Book of Himachal Pradesh (2019-2020)

Most of the area in Himachal Pradesh is hilly, mountainous with few intermontane valley in between them. The traditional ground water structures, which are under observation at present, are open wells mostly located in the valley area. Therefore, the ground water regime monitoring programme is concentrated mostly in valley area of the state and at some places in hard rock area. Efforts are however going on to increase the number of observation wells and include the piezometers of state government under the groundwater regime monitoring. This ground water year book contains useful data for water year 2019-2020 for all the planners and user agencies dealing with the development of ground water resources and it is hoped that it would be utilized fully for the real time management of ground water resources in the State.
