Jha3 ABSTRACT A watershed is a geohydrological unit draining at a common point.
Such natural unit has evolved through rain water interaction with land mass, typically comprising arable land, non-arable land and natural drainage lines in rain-fed areas.
Sustainable production depends on the health, vitality and purity of a particular environment in which land and water are important constituents.
A pilot study was thus undertaken to study the geomorphology, land-use systems and their impact on water resource management on the Meghalaya Umbaniun micro-watershed.
In this Micro-watershed (3951.18 ha), water body covers an area of 5.69ha (0.14%).
The paper highlights the linkage between geomorphology, land use systems and its impact on quality of water resources on the Umbaniun Micro-Watershed, Meghalaya.
Topographical and physical-chemical characteristics, such as pH, con...
