Abstract


The government of Egypt is currently implementing projects that expand the new cultivated area and accordingly the supplies of River Nile to the Nile Delta will be negatively affected. So, enormous interest toward management water of resources has been taken in the Egyptian water sector. Conveyance infrastructure and irrigation technology have been gradually improved to ensure efficient distribution and utilization of scarce water resources. The present study is focused on the optimum utilization of water resources in Sharkia governorate, Egypt. Operational and Planning Distribution Model (OPDM) is applied to the selected case study (Sharkia governorate) to develop appropriate water plan. The gross revenue of all crops is correlated to surface water discharge, ground water discharge, surface water salinity, and ground water salinity. In addition, the effect of varying both of surface and groundwater quantities and qualities on the gross revenue has been investigated. Moreover, the effect of limiting rice production on the gross revenue is allocated
