Groundwater is an invisible natural resource. It is available in different proportions, in various rock types and at various depths, on the surface layer of the earth. In the historical past, when there is no visible flow of water along the rivers, people used to dig small pits, in the river alluvium, wait and collect the groundwater coming through seepage and use it for their drinking purposes and for meeting the domestic needs. Similarly, to the people of mountainous regions, natural springs provided the sources of water supply. Springs are the outcome of seepage from any groundwater system, in hilly terrains or in limestone regions. More than 60 percent of the global population thrives by using only the groundwater resources. The groundwater which was existing at shallow depths in the open wells, has gone deep due to over-exploitation. Exploring these water sources become a challenging task to geo-scientists.
