Remote Sensing (RS) and GIS are effective techniques in timely and efficient generation of database for water resource management. The synoptic view and multi resolution satellite data is helpful in generating information on various scales. The effective planning for water resources conservation and management at district level can be made if the data is generated on 1:50,000 scale or larger. Indian Remote Sensing Satellite data has been used in conjunction with ancillary data available on topography, ground water quality, depth and fluctuations. Hydrogeomorphological maps showing different ground water prospective zones have been prepared for different districts in Haryana State, India. The other maps such as land use/land cover, geomorphology, drainage/canal network and soils etc are consulted for preparing water resources action plan for different areas. The maps thus prepared depict different units for further ground water prospecting. Surface water resources map has been prepared by taking into consideration satellite data, topographic sheets and ground information. GIS based integrated maps have been prepared for both surface and ground water action plans. Various sites have been suggested for site specific water resources conservation measures such check dams/gully plugging, earthen dams etc for recharging the ground water. The information thus developed was supplied to various government departments, district agencies and NGOs involved in the planning and management of natural resources for further implementation of the activities suggested. The present paper gives details about various such activities undertaken and future planning at the state level.
