Spring Recharge Program/Dhara Vikas at Kitam Manpur GP for ground water recharge, Sikkim

The rural households of Sikkim are mainly dependent on springs for drinking water and irrigation needs throughout the year. Since Kitam Manpur GP lies on the rain shadow area of Darjeeling hills, people here face acute shortage of water from December to May. Spring Recharge Program/Dhara Vikas is only the alternative to artificially enhance the ground water recharge for sustainable Spring flow throughout the year. Spring Recharge Program was undertaken under SAGY activities at Kitam Manpur GP.
