In the recent years, the use of groundwater in agricultural areas for irrigation is being increased rapidly. Unconscious usage
of water for irrigation threatens groundwater reserves. There is no need of discussing the importance of the groundwater
resources. Economic activities at Bismil, a district of the Diyarbakir province, depend mainly on agriculture and animal
husbandry in the Upper Tigris Basin. Tigris River lies through the middle part of the Bismil plain. Bismil plain agricultural
irrigation is obtained especially from groundwater by wells. And at coasts of Tigris River, irrigation is provided by pumping the
water directly from the river during the irrigation session. However, the consumption more than feeding of the groundwater
resources poses a serious threat for the groundwater resources. For this reason, the changes in the groundwater levels have
been studied using the data relevant to the water wells during the last 15 years. Three hundred and sixteen wells drilled for
watering purposes between the years, 1996-2011 have been examined. The drilling data was ranked with the aid of Microsoft
Excel software, and the coordinates have been arranged accordingly. These data were run on the ARC Map software. The data
that have been converted to shape (shp) format have been modelled through Spatial analyze.
