Introduction
Presently the entire study region is suffering from a lot of problems related to water. The existing water resources in the study region are extremely variable in quantity and quality. With regard to the water, the most acute and major problems of the Mahoba District are viz., water depletion, drought, water scarcity, deforestation, water erosion, declining quality, and quantity.

All the major problems of the whole study region have been explained considering vast deforestation, irregular climate, and sparse with low-density natural vegetation and uneconomic use of land resources followed by mismanagement of water resources both ground and surface. Due to very low and erratic rainfall, non-existence of any perennial system, failure of monsoon, and potential aquifer system the problem related to water are more acute and rather grave than other problems which have occurred in the entire belt of the semi-arid region where there prevails chronologically rising water table, quality and supply of water, shallow water table followed by water pollution. There is no worldwide water shortage in that capacity, however, a great many of regions and areas are incessantly having less quantity of water. Mahoba region in Uttar Pradesh was announced a ‘dark zone’ On 13 October 2014.

The term implies up images of gloom, despair, and perhaps even death and in the study region, the case is accurate as grim because it sounds. The government demarcated some areas as Dark zones where the over-exploitation of groundwater is heightened, and where the withdrawal and usage of groundwater exceed its recharge. Mahoba district is afflicted by one of its worst water deficits in decades, moving over a quarter of its populace, emptying its reservoirs, and making adversity in the livestock population. The Study region is the most water crisis-affected region in the country, accounting for 13 percent of the water scarcity-prone area of India. The problem of water is confined not only in the study area but also covers large tracts of adjoining areas also.
