6 % of the total supply. 7 % for domestic and industrial uses (WARPO 2001). It should be noted that these estimates do not take into account the effects of possible changes in climate. The following paragraphs discuss the possible influence of climate change in the estimation of the water requirements for the various sectors. Changes in climate may affect irrigation requirements for all the three cropping seasons: Rabi, Kharif-I, and Kharif-II. Increase in temperature will lead to escalating irrigation demands by 200 M m3 for March only (Brammer et al.

Groundwater in areas with lower topographic relief (central delta) is far more vulnerable to vertical and lateral intrusion pathways. Other than this, as many ground waters both change into and are recharged from surface water, impacts of surface water flow regimes are expected to affect groundwater. Increased precipitation variability may decrease groundwater recharge in humid areas because more frequent heavy precipitation events may result in the infiltration capacity of the soil being exceeded more often.
