The present paper deals with  hydrogeological setting of the Bagh study area Dhar District of Madhya Pradesh. Systematic hydrogeological survey has been carried out covering an area of 163.56 Sq. km. The well inventory involves examination of 30 dug wells in existence of study area. The data were recorded in respect of location of well, diameter, depth of well, and measurements of static water level during pos t-- and pre - monsoon periods to observe fluctuations in ground water levels. Static water levels during the post - monsoon period reveals a fluctuation range from 1.9 to 6.1 m b. g. l, and during pre - monsoon period the range of static water level varies from 3.8 to 10.7 m bgl. The fluctuations of ground water level from post - to pre - monsoon season have been observed as 1 to 7 m b.g.l. Based on static water level data, the ground water level contour maps have been prepared. The ground water level contour maps have helped in computing direction of ground water movement. The post - monsoon water level contour trend contributes in demarcations of ground water potential zones in study area. The changes in direction of ground water movement can be assigned to the lithology and structural characters. The ground water level fluctuation trends have been described as a result of excessive withdrawal of ground water
