  Water Logging and Salinity in Pakistan • Water logging represents the situation whereby the underground water comes on the surface of the land and in certain cases it gathers on the ground level of the lands and it may assume the shape of streams. 4. Water Logging and Salinity in Pakistan • As a result, the lands become uncultivable. "Salinity management alternatives for the Rechna Doab, Punjab, Pakistan. Volume 1 - Principal findings and implications for sustainable irrigated agriculture," IWMI Research Reports H, International Water Management Institute. 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. In Pakistan, salinity is one of the country’s most serious environmental problems, caused by human-induced soil erosion and long-term mismanagement of various agricultural practices (World Bank, ). Not only the soils but also the irrigation water itself is one of the major source of salinity in the arid region (Rus et al., ). Among.

Skogerboe Saeed-ur-Rehman Muhammad Aslam Albert P. Reichert June Pakistan Program International Water Management Institute Lahore. The irrigation system in Pakistan has brought great benefits to many people. Dependence on the natural hydrological system has been minimized and new settlements in canal irrigated areas have been established. However, the canal system has been accompanied by problems, which are increasingly difficult to overcome. Water logging and salinity are two of.

As a result, the production potential of the Indus Basin has been reduced by 25%. Over the last 40 years, the Government of Pakistan has adopted engineering, reclamation, and biological measures to address these problems. Part of the engineering solution involved large-scale Salinity Control and Reclamation Projects (SCARPs) in all four by: 1.

Lahore, Pakistan: IIMI Pakistan National Program. vii, 91p. (IIMI Pakistan report no.R). 5. Management of salinity and waterlogging through engineering strategies. The threat of waterlogging and soil salinity in the Indus Basin was recognized soon after the introduction of large scale irrigation systems. The first observation wells to monitor the effect of irrigation on the groundwater table depth were installed as early as in Cited by: Soil salinity control relates to controlling the problem of soil salinity and reclaiming salinized agricultural land.. The aim of soil salinity control is to prevent soil degradation by salination and reclaim already salty (saline) soils. Soil reclamation is also called soil improvement, rehabilitation, remediation, recuperation, or .
