Stresses on ground water, both in terms of quality and quantity, are growing rapidly due to increasing trend of demands, significant changes in land use pattern and a vast increase in the quantities and type of industrial and agricultural and domestic effluent entering the hydrological cycle. Therefore over the last two decades there has been substantial move towards mere complete understanding of groundwater contamination and how the impacts of contaminant can be mitigated by appropriate management actions and technological developments. With the advent of advanced technology, considerable use is now being made of models which allow the prediction of groundwater flow paths and contaminated migration pathways. Development of a model is an exercise in conceptualising the true nature of the groundwater regime from the available data. Present phase of the study deals with preliminary data processing and analysis of groundwater flow and contamination of Upper Palar system and visual conceptualisation before proceeding for much more complex operations of mathematical models in the subsequent phase.
