Welcome to Lower Bari Doab Canal Improvement Project (LBDCIP)

Lower Bari Doab Canal Improvement Project

2. Project Components

2.3 Groundwater Management

  1. Spatial and temporal behavior of recharge discharge dynamics.
  2. Saltwater/Salt upward and horizontal movements across the seasons.
  3. Technological, institutional and policy options and regulatory framework for groundwater usemanagement in different project area zones.

Detailed activities include the following:

  1. Restructuring of GIS and Groundwater Database to expand its utility and facilitate meaningful data transfer to central groundwater data repositories.

  2. Provision of additional monitoring well and wells for pumping test to further define and quantify
    aquifer hydraulic parameters and water quality sampling from various depths to better define
    vertical distribution of water quality within the aquifer system.

  3. Delineate areas where saline intrusion is taking place and/or possibility of the same is expected in
    near future.

  4. Recommend and evaluate possible solutions for reversal of groundwater deterioration (depth and
    quality) in critical areas of the project.

  5. Develop calibrate and operate a finite difference groundwater model of the aquifer underlying the
    LBDC command to serve as a tool in formulating and evaluating groundwater management
    strategies along with impacts of surface water change scenarios.

  6. Evaluate local well drilling and construction practices with a view to development of a training
    and certification program for local drillers and a training program for farmers regarding water
    well technology for the well owner (consumer).

  7. Introduce as appropriate improved and alternative well technologies, improved well logging
    techniques and review the practicalities of real time data transfer of groundwater monitoring to
    central data collection points.
