The decline of groundwater levels during the dry season was evaluated in a study area in northwestern Bangladesh. The feasibility of using recharge basins and recharge wells as a means for charging the groundwater during the dry season was analyzed.
A two-dimensional finite-difference computer model of groundwater flow (MODFLOW) was used in conjunction with a field scale computer model of runoff from agricultural management systems (CREAMS) to evaluate the natural or artificial recharge to the groundwater from precipitation. Effects of artificial recharge from six recharge wells and four recharge basins were analyzed. Irrigation during the dry season utilizing the artificially recharged groundwater proved to be technically feasible.
