Abstract

Groundwater is a vital resource of freshwater, and necessary for all aspects of life. It is estimated that over one billion people on earth do not have access to clean water supply. This research will study the future groundwater situations in the well field area of Great Man-Made River Project in Libya (GRMMP), which is located in the south west of Libya. The research will introduce the real situation after the arrival of water from the Great Man-Made River (GMMRP), phase-II, to the coastal area; groundwater was the main source of water to both agricultural and municipal consumptions for the country. Three scenarios will be carried using Groundwater Vistas software (GV), which runs of the MODFLOW and MODOFIC packages to make simulation and optimization respectively of that area. Three case studies will be carrying out of the area, East Jabel Hasauna well field (EJH). With the huge rate of pumping which planning to reach 2 million cubic meters per day, the results expected to be different and has some effect on groundwater budget. This paper is introducing the first scenario is simulated the East EJH which have 153 abstraction wells, the scenario have five stage related to long-term changing of groundwater table. The first three have shown clear changing of water table 8 m, 11.93 m, 14.43 m respectively, with constant abstraction rate of 5184 cubic meter per day. While the results of the last two stages were too close to third stage which 14.44 m.
