REDESIGN OF THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM OF EL-SILAIT AGRICULTURAL PROJECT

Adil M. Elkhidir, Maysaa H. Abdelmajid

Abstract


This study is carried out to revise the existing drainage system of El-Silait Agricultural Project, and redesign inadequate sections. The scheme suffered a serious damage as a result of the devastating floods that engulfed the area following the heavy rains in 2013.
Digital hydrological maps for East Nile Locality are generated using Geographical Information System (GIS), and the catchment area of Suba wadi is determined. The maximum daily rainfall data is analyzed for a period of 100 years (from 1901 to 2000) to determine the maximum design discharges of Suba wadi for different return periods (5, 25, 50, and 100 years). Moreover, the drainage discharges from agricultural areas are calculated using the generated drainage formula for the project. The flood control system has been revised by checking the adequacy of the drainage system within El-Silait Agricultural Project.
