Mathematical Model for Water Management of Confined Aquifer in South-western Part of the Baq’a Quadrangle (Hail Province), Saudi Arabia

Ahmed Bin Abdul Latif Alnaeem

Abstract:
In Saudi Arabia, groundwater resources are not only limited but also non-renewable. As such, the available water resources need intelligent planning for efficient conservation and management to avoid unwarranted losses. The main objective of this study is to present a simple mathematical model for the management of water wells in an aquifer. The required conditions included the interaction of cone of depression between adjacent wells under a critical and specific of water level and the safe velocity of groundwater which depends mainly on the hydraulic conductivity for flow of water in wells. The variables studied for the confined aquifer were maximum permissible flow rate, velocity and water level. Mean Maximum Permissible Flow Velocity (MMPFV) for different locations came to 5.06, 4.65, 3.48, 4.70, 4.56, 3.92, 5.23, 4.38 and 5.06 m day-1 for J, H, G, F, E, D, C, B and A fields, respectively. Mean value of permeability (T, M2/tor) was 1862.5 and 3475.9 for wells located in G5 and G7, respectively . Mean hydraulic conductivity (K, m day-1) was 5.39 and 4.05 for wells in G5 and G7 locations, respectively. Local variables (maximum permissible flow rate, actual flow rate, residual flow rate) presented in the form of contour maps were used to identify areas with poor management and suggested appropriate preventive measures. In conclusion, implementation of simple administrative water management model was proposed based on the actual field data from Saq sand aquifer in the south-western part of the Baq’a quadrangle in Hail province, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
