Résumé partiel
Sinai peninsula occupies the far northeastern corner of Egypt with an area of 61,000 sq. km, which is about 6% of the total area of the country. It is situated between the two major continents Africa and Asia, and is bounded on the north by the Mediterranean sea, on the south by the Red sea, on the west by the canal and gulf of Suez and on the east by the gulf of Aqaba and the frontier border between Egypt and Palestine. Within the framework of the governmental plan to develop the deserted areas, great efforts are being paid to convert portions of these desert areas to productive land, especially with a distinct increase in population, agricultural and industrial developments. In the last few decades, Sinai has received huge investments in the form of agricultural and industrial projects in addition to the mining and tourism activities. Water is the basic need for any life to exist in this world. Prehistoric man was leading a nomadic life on the banks of rivers. With natural calamities such as floods, earthquakes etc. he was disturbed and up rooted from his dwelling place. With the advent of civilization, the human life became more stable. Accordingly, the use of water has increased, first for the drinking needs, then for supplementing agriculture, irrigation, municipal requirements and later for industrial growth. Naturally, when surface water is in short supply, one has to depend partly or wholly on groundwater
