The Water Resources Information System (WRIS), India, is empowering the improvement of watershed (basin) assessments so as to expand the swiftness and proficiency producing data to guide preservation usage, and additionally the rate and effectiveness of placing it into the hands of local decision makers. Therefore the current study uses the WRIS India portal for assessing the resources and provides a comprehensive overview of the ecological health of Krishna upper basin. In the study assess the spatio-temporal variation of rainfall and temperature, soil erosion potentiality and ground water fluctuation (draft) for the Krishna upper basin. These appraisals help land-proprietors and neighborhood pioneers set needs and focus the best activities to accomplish their objectives.
