Abstract:
Ground water is the water found underground in the cracks and void spaces in soil, sand and rock or geologic strata. It is stored in and moves slowly through geologic formation of soil, sand and rocks called Aquifers that is consisting of permeable material capable to store significant quantities of water. The depth at which soil pore spaces or fractures and voids in rock become completely saturated with ground water is called the ground water table. It is also called subsurface water that is related through the hydrological cycle. The study of ground water is known as hydrogeology. Ground water scarcity is one of the most important concern of present day geographers. Ground water is essential for all socio-economic development and for maintaining a healthy livelihood in the world. At present reduction of ground water scarcity is prime goal of many countries and governments. Ground water scarcity is a regular threat for the people of Egra-II block in Purba Medinipur district which has great negative impacts on development. So it is very crucial to free the people of Egra-II block from this anathema of ground water scarcity. For this purpose this paper has been analyzed for the Ground water scarcity and management in Egra-II block in Purba Medinipur district.
