  1. The cost of recharge to sub-surface reservoir is lower than surface reservoirs.
  2. The aquifer serves as a distribution system also.
  3. No land is wasted for storage purpose and no population displacement is involved.
  4. Ground water is not directly exposed to evaporation and pollution.
  5. Storing water under ground is environment friendly.
  6. It increases the productivity of aquifer.
  7. It reduces flood hazards.
  8. Effects rise in ground water levels.
