Development of Sustainable Water Resourcrs Management Plan for Pothakamuru Watershed using RS and GIS

P. Anila | K. V Ramana [3] | M. Raghu Babu | H. V. Hema Kumar

Abstract: Sustainable water resource management plan aims the suggestion of soil and water conservation measures which includes agronomical and engineering structures for the reduction of soil erosion, safe disposal of runoff as well as drained water and for the increase of groundwater recharge. For the development of management plan, different parameters were considered which includes the slope of area, drainage network, drainage density, runoff from the area and land use land cover map of watershed. Pothakamuru watershed lies on Darsi Mandal in Prakasam District of Andhra Pradesh. The area is facing high water scarcity. Slope map, drainage network map and drainage density map of the area were developed in ArcMap. Runoff from the study area was estimated with SCS Curve Number method and using ArcGis. About 25% of the total rainfall being flow as runoff. Land use land cover map prepared with Sentinel 2 satellite image using ERDAS IMAGINE 2019. Decision rules for the suggestion of conservation measure were made.

Keywords: Soil and water conservation structures, DEM, Geographical Information System (GIS)
