Simulated changes in water level in the Minjur aquifer, Riyadh area, Saudi Arabia (Water studies series). A two-dimensional finite-difference computer model of the Minjur aquifer in the Riyadh area of Saudi Arabia was developed to simulate and predict drawdown in an aquifer which, insupplied more than 80 percent of all water used in this capital area.

The Minjur was modeled as a confined aquifer recharged by leakage through underlying confining beds. Get this from a library. Simulated changes in water level in the Minjur aquifer, Riyadh area, Saudi Arabia. [James Frank Williams; Ibrahim Al-Sagaby; United States-Saudi Arabia. J.F. Williams, I.A.

Water samples Nos.1 and 4 belong to Minjur aquifer and the other two water samples (2 and 3) belong to Jubaila aquifer. For example, according to the Saudi Arabian Water Atlas (MAW, ), the water level in the Wasia aquifer declined at well MW from + m above the land surface in to + m above land surface ina net decline of 6 m in water level during a period of merely four years.

Another shallow aquifer in Riyadh is Jubaylah, which is about – m thick, and many of the wells that tapped it, including city wells, were suspended due to falling water levels.

In most shallow aquifers, water was being used at a much faster rate than these could be replenished. The UER aquifer has a thickness of m to more than m (Baciewicz et al., ; GDC, ). The basis is formed by the impervious Aruma formation.

In the outcropping area, the As Summan Plateau with elevations of to m a.s.l., the unconfined water level lies down to m below the surface.

Saudi Arabia is of a limited water resources due to its sporadic and limited rainfall. During the last two decades, the rapid development of the country, together with increased population and living standards, resulted in drastic changes in water needs with irrigated agriculture consuming the highest amount of water (about 88%).
