This study presents analysis of the water table position, their decline rate due to the urbanization and management through rain water harvesting. The study was performed at 17 piezometers installed by Central Ground Water Board (C.G.W.B). The water table in Lucknow shows the declining behavior where on an average the water table decline is at 1 meter per year. The Lucknow urban centre shows a continuous escalation since 1931. The population of Lucknow in 1901 was 2,56,239 which became 22,45,509 in 2001. In order to recognize the economic value of water, it is desirable to undertake policy and institutional changes in the process of water management in the country.
