Author Name Kamal Misra
Abstract Due to serve erosion problems, the Soil Conservation Department of Damodar. Valley Corporation build check dams for runoff harvesting and its recycling in irrigation, in four villages, namely, Phuphund, Marpa, Telaiya and Thapai, of the catchment of the Damodar Valley. From the studies conducted it can be concluded that rainwater harvesting/recycling by check dams is the key to the development in the High Land Eastern Red Soils Region of the country. Check dam acted as a nucleus of all round development by assuring crop stand, due to the availability of water, changed new cropped area into double cropped area, changed subsistence agriculture to market oriented cash crop production, generated new employment opportunities, catalysed land reclamation and development, gave impetus to pisiculture, fodder and milk production. This phenomena can be replicated in the regions of similar topography and rainfall pattern all over the country.
