Groundwater risk perception issue of Payradanga: A study


Shrinwantu Raha

Groundwater (or ground water) is the water present beneath Earth's surface in soil pore spaces and in the fractures of rock formations. A unit of rock or an unconsolidated deposit is called an aquifer when it can yield a usable quantity of water. Groundwater is often cheaper, more convenient to collect than the surface waters. Groundwater provides largest storage of usable water resources over the world. Underground reservoirs contain far more waters than the surface water bodies and groundwater are almost free from pollution. Payradanga is god gifted with the aquatic feature. Groundwater is more near to the surface easy to pull up. So, almost every households of Payradanga use pump machine to store the water in the tanks just situated over the roof of the house. The agricultural fields of Payradanga also utilize water heavily with the help of shallow machine. Shallow machine and pumps drag and pull the water continuously over a particular point. In the present circumstances Payradanga is burst out of population. Continuously unplanned use of groundwater deteriorating the advantage of getting water from underground as well as these activities now polluting water by increasing the effect of arsenic in ground water. This paper overviews the groundwater perception issue of Payradanga and a swell as risk of overuse of groundwater which may affect people of Payradanga.
