For sustainable water management in water scarce areas available quantity of water is consumptively used and saved water is conjunctively supplied in addition to insufficient quantity available in water deficit months. Such storages are generated season wise and selecting suitable technique of aquifer storage as against preservation in a surface water body is a vital issue. Conjunctive planning require survival of both surface and subsurface water, however sustainability of an individual storage levy risk on the augmentation of the other. In the present paper, such analyses are discussed for a cultural command of 11.51 sq km in Ozar irrigation command under the Waghad Right Bank canal in Nasik District of Maharashtra.
