Abstract:
The Punjab State is facing continues problem of declining groundwater table for last 2-3 decades and as a consequence, most of the wells which were used for withdrawal of water earlier have dried up and become abandoned. With water harvesting gaining momentum in the state, the abandoned wells can be put to best use and boost the water table. During rainy season and winter season irrigation water requirement through canal water reduced sharply. So farmer can use surplus canal water for recharging groundwater. In the present study recharge rate and its impact under different conditions were studied for recharging abandoned well. The recharge rate through abandoned well varies from 0.2l/s to 7.67 l/s for different heads. The recharging of surplus canal water will improve overall quality of groundwater. Recharging abandoned well with gravel pack will improved overall capacity and life of abandoned well. There was negligible effect on rise in water table as limited volume of water for limited time was recharged.
