Abstract:
Groundwater is one of the most natural resources that supports human well-being and ecological diversity. Thematic maps were prepared from digital elevation model (DEM) of shuttle radar topographic mission (SRTM) with 30 m resolution. Various thematic layers such as geomorphology, geology, slope, land use land cover, lithology, drainage density and soil etc were used for generation of groundwater potential zone. The groundwater potential zone map of the Sakharpa watershed was divided into five categories such as ‘Very Poor’, ‘Poor’, ‘Moderate’, ‘Good’, and ‘Very Good’ groundwater potential. About 24.61% area falls under the very poor groundwater potential zones category. Poor groundwater potential is available in 42.28%. About 20.32% area falls under the moderate groundwater potential zones category. Good groundwater potential is available in 12.53% and only 0.26% area falls under very good groundwater potential.
