Anil Katara, Pramendra Dev

The paper is focused on hydrogeological analysis of Trival area of Thandla tehsil, located in Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh, India. The study area is characterized by geological formations of Aravalli super group, Lameta and Bagh beds, Deccan Traps and Alluvium. The major portion of Thandla area is covered by quartzites, phyllites, granite-gneiss, of Aravalli Super group. The rest of Thandla area is occupied by limestone, sandstone of Lametas and Bagh beds overlain by the flows of Deccan traps. Alluvium is well exposed along the course of Padmavati River.

The hydrogeological examination of 35 open dug wells reveals well diameter range from 3.65-7.95 m, static water levels range from 1.10-9.60 m. bgl and depth of wells range from 6.50-12.25 m. bgl. The seasonal monitoring of water level. Indicator a fluctuation range of 2.15-6.38 m. bgl. The ground water level maps of post and pre monsoon periods indicate that in general the ground water movement is towards the Padmavati River The suitable sites for ground water development has been suggested in the villages of Timarwani, Udepuriya, Miyati, Bhimkund, Khokhar khandan, Dhamni and Junwaniya
