Résumé
The construction of small micro-dams has been stopped in Northern Ethiopia because such reservoirs were not holding enough surface water for irrigation purposes. The main problem of such dams is leakage and/or seepage which in turn may be regarded as something beneficial for groundwater abstraction. Thus, the aim of this thesis is to make a groundwater model in order to calculate with the help of zone budget the groundwater recharge due to the reservoir. The low values obtained are due to the rainy season where the observation heads for the calibration proccess were. It is expected to obtain higher values if a new model is calibrated for the longer dry season.
