Abstract

A two dimensional finite- difference computer code has been developed to model the groundwater flow of Tamraparni river basin (Lat. 80 251 to 90131 N & Long. 770 101 to 780 101 E). Tamilnadu and used as a predictive tool for forecasting the distribution of groundwater potentials under (i) normal, existing conditions and (ii) with a limited stress of 1% increase in the amount of extraction per year, upto 1991. The zones of depletion due to the proposed stress into this crystalline aquifer system, its ultimate effects on the ground water exploitation schemes have been inferred. Unwarranted mining of groundwater changes the entire effluent river system into an influent one by 1991. It has been concluded from the results of this model that over exploitation of any groundwater resource should be stopped in order to “save ourselves” in future.
