Economic evaluation of groundwater development plans in Upper Egypt

Economic evaluation of groundwater development plans in Upper Egypt

International Journal of Water Resources Development 8(2): 135-144

In the Nile Valley floodplain, groundwater schemes are used either to supplement surface water deficits or to solve drainage problems. Previous investigations have indicated that the major economic return from conjunctive use projects is from drainage. Accordingly, the groundwater development plans for the Nile Valley gave first priority to tubewell drainage. This paper discusses the economic evaluation of a groundwater scheme designed essentially for land drainage.
