ground water movement is slow. Both the rivers i.e. Ravi and Beas are effluent in nature. Ground water, in general, follows the surface topography and is flowing towards west and south-west towards the Ravi that forms the border with Pakistan. The major withdrawal of ground water in this area is through the phreatic aquifer that is being recharged. of the Hab Dam in the north-west of Karachi in the year WATER-SUPPLY SCENARIO FOR COASTAL BELT OF KARACHI arachi has a complex water-supply system, which developed over a period of more than years.

An extensive program of test drilling and water sampling, undertaken by the Water and Soils Investigation Division (WASID) of the West Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to evaluate hydrologic problems related to waterlogging and soil salinity, has furnished data for the delineation of fresh and saline ground-water zones in the Punjab region of West Pakistan.

delineation of fresh and saline ground-water zones in the Punjab region of West Pakistan. Fresh ground water containing generally less than ppm (parts per million) of total dissolved solids is found in wide belts paralleling the major rivers and in other areas of ground-water recharge.

In the other one-third of the Punjab, total dissolved solids range from 1, to ab ppm.

In about one-half of this area (one-sixth of the area of the Punjab) some ground water can be utilized by diluting with surface water from canals. The ground-water reservoir underlying the Punjab is an unexploited resource of enormous economic value. Groundwater is the major source of drinking water in Southwestern semi-arid region of Punjab, India which is now facing severe salinity and fluoride (F-) problems.A study was carried out in the Bathinda district of southwest semi-arid region of Punjab to assess the salinity and F-concentrations.

Groundwater samples from 21 locations were analyzed, and 59% were found to exceed the permissible Cited by: 4. The main purpose of this investigation was to delineate the fresh/saline aquifer zones for exploitation and management of fresh water resources in the Upper Bari Doab, northeast Punjab, Pakistan.
