The demand and requirement for fresh water in Poonch District, J&K India has swiftly increased as the area experiences constant water stress conditions due to drifting rainfall pattern and shortage of surface water resources. Therefore, management of accessible groundwater resources has become critical to fulfil potable water requirements in the area. The present study was conducted to focus on the potential and possible options available for the harvesting of groundwater which in turn would help in revitalizing of dried out water bodies in this far-flung part of the country and enhance the water desires of the people. Therefore in this study, a GPS approach was used to delineate potential artificial recharge sites in Poonch District, J&K India.
