A Study on Relation of Groundwater Depletion With Lean Season

Irrigation in West Bengal

Submitted By: Bikram Karmakar(bst0841)

We have data concerning annually replenishable groundwater level and lean season irri-

gation in different blocks of West Bengal. All the blocks from all the 18 districts of West

Bengal are included in the data. Variables on which we have explicit data are

1. Total Area (in Hectors) of the block.

2. Side of the river Bhagirathi on which the block lies (2 for North, 1 for East, 0 for

West).

3. Area of Boro cultivation in the block estimated from Small Area Survey.

4. Area of (Non Boro) Rabi cultivation in the block estimated from Small Area Survey.

5. Average (on the blocks) annually replenishable groundwater level in each of the

districts, i.e. level of groundwater that have declined in the district over the annum.

Standard units for Area, groundwater are square meter (m2 ) and cubic meter (m3 )

respectively (ref. http://www.cgwb.gov.in). These standard units are used through-

out this text and in our analysis.

2 Objective

Our objective is to explain the groundwater depletion or variation in groundwater de-

pletion by lean season irrigation. It is important to notice that the data in our hand

is strictly limited to West Bengal only. Therefore the results and conclusions will be

limited to this particular state of India. There is no reason at all to believe that we will

have same results on different parts of the world, because groundwater depletion is surely

affected by geographic characteristics of the part.

Thus we are actually trying to find out any kind of relationship between lean season

irrigation and groundwater depletion and then explain effects of different independent

factors involved.

3 Method of Study

3.1 Assumptions

We make two necessary and relevant assumptions for our study, these are,

Uniform distribution of groundwater within each of the districts Since we have

only the average annually replenishable groundwater level in the districts(but not

for the blocks), the whole information on blockwise annually replenishable ground-

water levels are not available to us. Thus this assumption helps us to analysis our

data.

Lean season irrigation in some area affects only the groundwater in that area

It says that irrigation in other blocks do not affect groundwater level in a block.

This assumption is quite reasonable since block size is generally much bigger than

the total area of cultivation. This assumption is technically needed for assuring the

independence of the observations from each of the blocks.

3 METHOD OF STUDY 2

Since groundwater depletion is area specific and also there may be many other confounding

variables, a safer way would be to model relative change in groundwater depletion, i.e. we

shall try to find out the relative change in groundwater depletion due to one unit relative

change in area of irrigation. Mathematically, we are interested in,

∂R.G.W/R.G.W ∂ log(R.G.W )

= (1)

∂Area Irri/Area Irri ∂ log(Area Irri)

Where R.G.W denotes annual replenishable ground water in the blocks and AreaIrri

denotes Area of irrigation in the blocks. Thus, we shall try to model log(R.G.W ) as a

linear function of log(Area Irri).

By our first assumption, we can find the amount replenishable groundwater for a block

by multiplying the replenishable groundwater level by total area of the block. Thus the

amount of annually groundwater depletion is available to us for the blocks.

Our initial model of study is,

+βAreaIrri(Rabi) log(AreaIrri(Rabi)) +

with normally distributed with mean zero and equal variance. Relevant sources of

error for the model would be 1) formula error, 2) estimation error for estimating Area of

Boro and Rabi irrigation from SA, 3) Absence of other relevant explanatory variables.

NOTE: Our Goodness of Fit of the model would be based on R¯2 (for nested models)

and AIC(for non nested models). Results are summarized as follows

2

1. R value is only 30.02%

2. There are many observations that gives large estimated errors.

4 INTERPRETATION OF THE MODEL 3

of variance of the errors as the Areas increases.

The last result in the trial model is an evidence of the heteroscedasticity of the model

residuals. We suspect that the groundwater depletion may not be equally affected by a

unit change in amount of irrigation(in Area) for different levels of Irrigation.

Modification 1 We assume V (|T otalIrrigation) = σ 2 (T otalIrri)−2

Modification 2 Two more blocking factors along with their interactions are assumed.

They are 1) Whether proportion of Area of Boro in a block CB or not, 2) Whether

proportion of Area of Rabi in a block CR or not. On the basis of AIC comparison

the choice of CB and CR turns out to be CB = CR = 0.3. These factorial effects

can be graphically seen in Figure 2.

Our Model for explaining groundwater depletion is

The coefficients β(AreaIrri(Boro)) and β(AreaIrri(Rabi)) can be interpreted as follows,

β(AreaIrri(Boro)) measures the relative change in groundwater depletion when relative

change in Area of Boro irrigation is one unit and similarly β(AreaIrri(Rabi)) measures

the relative change in groundwater depletion when Area of Rabi irrigation changes by

one unit in relative sense. Since only the difference of the factors in different levels are

estimable we assume the factor effects at the first level(i.e level = FALSE) to be zero.

Then γ(T RU E) measures the excess effect of more Boro irrigation, than more irrigation, on

the relative changes in groundwater depletion. Interpretation for δ(T RU E) is equivalent

for Rabi irrigation. With the side restriction that all the θ0 s other than θ(T RU E,T RU E)

are zero, θ(T RU E,T RU E) estimates the interaction effect of more irrigation of both kinds,

than any or none, on relative groundwater depletion.

5 RESULTS OF MODEL FITTING 4

The following results are based on the Modified fitted on the data.

Figure 3 shows some outlining points on the data. We exclude those points to do our

analysis.

Figure 4 gives diagrammatical view of the model residuals. Plots support our as-

sumptions on the errors in the model.

6 Conclusion

• The study shows positive effect of relative change in Boro or Rabi irrigation on

relative change in replenishable groundwater. For 1 unit relative change in Boro

irrigation there is a15.52% relative change in replenishable groundwater, while for

Rabi thos value is 27.97%.

• The areas on the east or west of Bhagirathi are more affected in terms of relative

change in replenishable groundwater than that in areas in north of Bhagirathi. This

difference is 24.8% for the east and 28.6% for the west.

water is much less (less by 68.45% for Boro and 62.34% for Rabi). Thus the

groundwater in areas, which are prone to irrigation, are not affected as much as

those which are not by same amount of relative increase in irrigation.

• Blocks with more irrigation of both Boro and Rabi are affected more, in terms of

relative change in groundwater depletion, than others (nearly 68% more).

7 Further

The Model only explains 57.41% of the variation. There are necessarily other factors

or independent variables affecting the relative change in R.G.W. With more information

on irrigation in the blocks and detailed information on falling trend in rainy season

(which has been ignored in our study due to large amount of missing data) more specific

conclusions may be reached.
