Abstract

Spring discharge is controlled by rainfall, land use, vegetation, grazing incidence and geomorphology of the recharge zone in a mountain watershed in Garhwal Himalaya. In the middle and greater Himalaya, natural springs are the main source of domestic water consumption, but their discharge does not remain constant with time. Erratic rainfall directly affects the recharging of the spring catchment. In this communication, the behavior of a perennial spring with rainfall variation is analyzed from two years data recorded seasonally i.e. winter, rainy, summer. The present work provides spring discharge pattern in a mountain watershed, explores interaction of spring behaviour with rainfall, landuse and other morphological characteristics of the springs, emphasizes water resource management.

Keywords: Springs, Rain fall
