Hydrological Evaluation Study For Sugar Factory Area, Hardoi District, U,P
Hardoi district, in Uttar Pradesh, has agriculture as the predominant activity with many people depends on it. The main crops cultivated are paddy, sugarcane, wheat, vegetables, pulses, and oilseeds. The major cash crop of the district and surrounding area is sugarcane.

The area has high availability of surface water with three major rivers flowing through the district viz.,Ganga, Ramganga, and Garha. But over the last five years, it has witnessed a decline in rainfall which has impacted the groundwater levels, resulting in low yield of the various wells. This along with the limited surface water structures available has increased the cost of irrigation for the farmers and also resulted in a low productivity of the crops. Contrary to this there are also areas within the district with surplus water which also reduces the productivity of the crops due to water logging. The prevailing water scenario has notably impacted the livelihoods and businesses.

CII – Triveni Water Institute partnered with DCM Shriram Ltd. to evaluate the water situation in the district at the watershed level to understand the water availability status. The study intends to suggest an action plan to address water stress and water surplus situations in the area. A hydrological evaluation exercise is underway for the area using the WATSCANTM to assess the total water availability, water accessibility, and water losses. Groundwater evaluation for the district is also being undertaken to ascertain the spatial groundwater distribution, groundwater fluctuations over time. The outcomes of the study would be developing a water management plan for improved livelihood of the communities and also long-term business sustainability.
