Abstract
River bank erosion and flooding are serious problems in the Golaghat district of Assam because of the basin's hydro-meteorological and topographical characteristics. Due to frequent and severe floods and bank erosion, Dhansiri, the major river of Golaghat district, has a troubled reputation throughout Assam's history. Dhansiri basin flooding and erosion are notorious for their extraordinary severity, regularity, and destructive scope. The banks of the Dhansiri River have been the site of substantial empirical research. And statistical approaches were used to examine how much the river affected the population's social and economic life. This research provides insight into the overall socioeconomic effect of river bank erosion and flood on the population in the regions surrounding the river Dhansiri and the techniques that local people have employed at the household level to mitigate and guard against these hazards. The field of water resources management analyzes the relationships between water's occurrences, distribution, transportation, and qualities on Earth. There is a lot of spatial and temporal diversity in hydrological systems, and they are intrinsically complex. Each regional water resources program must begin with a foundational knowledge of hydrology and basin features including soil type, vegetation, land use, geology, etc. The planning and execution of water resources development on a basin scale and watershed management program relies heavily on an understanding of the basin's hydrology.
