English Abstract

A numerical two-dimensional model was used to model groundwater flow in the Umm Er Radhuma confined aquifer. The study area was chosen to be the farm of Al-Sharqiya Agricultural Company where 75 wells were drilled in an area of about 90 square kilometers to irrigate serial crops using central-pivoted irrigation system. A topographic contour map of the area was made using aerial photogrammetry. Chemical and physical water analysis showed that water extracted from the aquifer was in agreement with irrigation water quality standards. The calibrated physical parameters of the UER aquifer indicated that the aquifer is highly productive. The calibrated model was used to predict the aquifer's response for a 7-year planning period where different management alternatives were evaluated. The study showed the best alternative is to conserve water in addition to relocation of continuously irrigated crops to the western part of the study area.
