Water Resources Investigation & Development Department of Government of West Bengal has taken a lead role under the programme to re-excavate all kinds of water bodies viz, tanks, ponds, reservoirs, canals where water holding capacities have lower down at present in convergence with P&RD Department, Govt of West Bengal and other different programmes and also emphasised on underground artificial recharge through rooftop rainwater harvesting. Check Dams, Water harvesting Tanks and Surface Flow Minor Irrigation Schemes which are being constructed by WRI&DD would help in arresting surface runoff water and at the same time irrigation potential of the state are being increased by utilisation of the same. Increased holding capacities in the water bodies will immensely support protective irrigation during the dry spell. Apart from agriculture, pisciculture activities would develop in such water bodies which in turn open a further avenue of income to the poor farmers. Availability of water throughout the year will also help the local villagers in their domestic activities and animal husbandry activities.
