Abstract: Groundwater is an important natural resource of the world. Large-scale groundwater utilization in the past world has resulted in adverse economic-cum-environmental problems such as continual decline of piezometric levels, land subsidence and groundwater quality deterioration. Groundwater modelling of the study area has been prepared for the assessment of groundwater resources and to prescribe a long-term development policy. FLOWNET and MODFLOW has been used and calibrated to simulate the groundwater levels in the aquifer system. The model is calibrated against the field hydrographs of the study area. The aquifer system responses to different pumping schemes are then predicted for different periods. The present model could be used for future planning of sustainable groundwater development and management of the area studied.
