Abstract

Salinity ingress is refers to the process of salt water invading areas which previously contained only fresh water. The coastal areas of Gujarat especially the villages lying within 20-25 km from the seashore are suffering from the problem of salinity ingress. Most of the rivulets that drain this region are seasonal at best and their water does not last beyond monsoons. The other aquifers like ponds, which get water from these rivers, also dry up as early as October. The present paper deals with the salinity ingress of Surka mining lease area of Gujarat.
