Hydrogeology

Geologically, the state is underlain by sedimentary rocks of Tertiary age, which have been tightly folded in a series of anticlines and synclines. Ground water occurs under confined and unconfined conditions in sandstones, sandy shales etc. In the northern and north western part of the State, the relief is much subdued. Mizoram is an abode of springs. These springs are widely utilized by people for domestic needs. Recent study suggests that there is good scope of tapping ground water in the riverbeds with sumps connected to infiltration galleries.
