Water is key to lifestyles, upkeep of ecological stability, fiscal improvement, and sustenance of civilization. making plans and administration of water assets and its optimum use are a question of urgency for many nations of the realm, or even extra so for India with an enormous inhabitants. starting to be inhabitants and increasing fiscal actions exert expanding calls for on water for various needs--domestic, commercial, agricultural, energy iteration, navigation, sport, and so forth. In India, agriculture is the top consumer of water. The previous 3 a long time have witnessed a number of advances in addition to have awarded fascinating demanding situations and intriguing possibilities in hydrology and water assets. Compounding them has been the growing to be environmental attention. Nowhere are those demanding situations extra obvious than in India. As we technique the twenty­ first century, it really is solely becoming to take inventory of what has been entire and what continues to be finished, and what accomplishments are correct, with specific connection with Indian conditions.

Local heterogeneity and layering often produce saturation areas in the domain and the numerical model of Hills et aI. (1989) is not suitable for those cases. Further, this algorithm cannot handle a positive pressure upper boundary condition, especially associated with ponding after heavy precipitation or irrigation. Celia et al. (1990) proposed a new numerical scheme to solve equation (1) directly. This method was shown by them to be completely mass conservative. To describe the procedure, a discretized form of equation (1) can be written using the finite element or the finite difference approach.
