Hydrogeological study of the Manikgarh and Naokari limestone mining areas, located in the Chandrapur region of central India, indicate that the mining operations should not cause environmental problems. Conversion of hill mining to pit mining at the Manikgarh Limestone Mine should be feasible and safe. At the Naokari Limestone Mine, a partial diversion of a seasonal stream, the Bop Nala, has been proposed to simplify mining and maximize production; this can be done without significantly altering the natural drainage pattern of the area and is not expected to have any adverse effects on the hydrological regime of area.
