Water Resource Management and Water Quality Analysis in Udgir: A Semiarid Region Perspective
Narkhede R. K. | Patwari J. M
Abstract: This article focuses on the water resource dynamics and quality assessment in Udgir, a region characterized by a semiarid climate with an annual precipitation of 700 mm. Groundwater and surface water bodies play a vital role in catering to domestic, irrigation, and drinking needs due to the absence of perennial rivers. The study highlights the significance of underground and surface water sources, particularly lake Banshelki, situated 7 km from Udgir. With agriculture as the primary income source in the area, concerns regarding atmospheric runoff leading to sediment deposition and agricultural residue runoff into the lake are explored. The research identifies four sampling sites and conducts a year - long monthly analysis of iron levels using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry, shedding light on water quality trends.
