Résumé
Emirate of Abu Dhabi is located in an arid region, where the main source of fresh water is desalination plants. The vulnerability of desalination plants renders planning for an alternative source of freshwater essential. In this study the feasibility of aquifer storage and recovery in the Liwa area, in Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates was investigated. Based on operational data collected from the pilot project, the model was set up and calibrated. The calibrated model was used to study the affect of various operational parameters, namely storage duration, pumping rate, screen location, multiple cycle operation and periodic recharge, as well as some aquifer characteristics factors : dispersion and salinity profile. This study can be utilized to optimize the operation of the Liwa ASR project.
