Latest NWRC publication entitled "Drainage Water Reuse in the Nile Delta of Egypt: Fitting Density Functions and Assessing Temporal Trends"

In the light of the continuous acknowledgment by the President of the National Water Research Center (NWRC) to its researchers working at the NWRC and its affiliate institutions. Dr. Mohamed Shaban (Assistant Professor at the Drainage Research Institute (DRI) of the NWRC) has recently published a research paper entitled: " Drainage Water Reuse in the Nile Delta of Egypt: Fitting Density Functions and Assessing Temporal Trends " at the reputable scientific journal "Irrigation and Drainage by Wiley publisher". This study attempts to investigate the variability in the current drainage water reuse (DWR) pattern in terms of discharges in Million Cubic Meters (MCM) and their corresponding salinities (DWR (TDS)) recorded since 1984 in the Nile Delta regions (Case I). In addition, the expected future DWR (DWR_E) patterns were simulated, taking into account the expected future reuse expansion projects (Case II). The results indicate that DWR discharge and salinity series had increasing trends except the DWR salinity measured in the Western Nile Delta region that showed an insignificant decreasing trend. The results also show that there is a potential for increasing the mean DWR discharges up to 101, 32.6 and 282% for the Eastern, Middle and Western Delta regions, respectively. This will be accompanied with DWR salinity increases up to 39.5, 11.4 and 46.1%, respectively. The paper can be downloaded from the journal’s website from this link:
