The state minor irrigation department is making efforts for conservation of
water in the parched Bundelkhand area.
The water level of Bundelkhand is dropping each year. As many as
109 of the 124 hydrograph stations set up by the central groundwater board have
registered a decline in the levels of ground water in the region.
As a part of the efforts initiated by the minor irrigation department, 196 check
dams would be built in the area. This will be done as a part of ongoing project
in which a total of 822 dams are to be raised. In 2010-11, 265 have been built
while work for 149 is underway.
