Mogambo Irrigation Project, Additional study for and alternative development

The terms of reference for this Additional Study called for two alternatives (A and B) to be investigated. The development for alternative A has been based on the proposals of the Supplementary Study and allows for future expansion to the full area. The development for alternative B has been chosen as the beat area to be implemented independently of any future expansion. Alternative A identifies 2 052 ha net of surface irrigation and 163 ha net of overhead irrigation, and alternative B Identifies 1,809 ha net of surface irrigation end 122 ha net of overhead irrigation.

Present and future irrigated agriculture in the Shabelle and Juba rivers

In this report, written after a visit to Somalia to evaluate irrigation potential, the hydrometric data base is questioned as regards both its validity and its representativity. Steps to improve the basic data are proposed which include technical assistance to check and re-establish station ratings over a period of one year. The design plan of the juba high dam is discussed and attention drawn to the necessity of seeking the best professional advice to determine this parameter which has a direct bearing upon the safety and the cost of the dam. Present and proposed irrigation in the Shebelle and Juba valleys are examined.

Homboy irrigated settlement project, Ground water

(Extract from the introduction)brThe main objective of the hydrogeological appraisal was to determine whether the potable water demand of the proposed settlements could be supplied from groundwater sources. Further objectives were to determine the best methods of groundwater abstraction and evaluate the costs of any necessary installations. The main problem with attaining these objectives has been the weakness of the existing data base. Thus, though some work relevant to the hydrogeology of the region had been done in the past, much of the data appears to have been lost. Particular examples of this are the boreholes drilled by the Russians, for which all records seem untraceable. Further, even such scant data as exists has never been systematically analysed and compiled. The approach of this study has been to collect all the published informationparticularly the various development reports, to interview the personnel of various agencies concerned with groundwater work in Somalia and to conduct a field survey to collect geological and hydrogeological data. All this information has been carefully processed and compiled to obtain a regional picture of the groundwater systems. The Project Area itself, for which basically no subsurface data exists, was then viewed within that regional context. The results obtained are not fully conclusive but they are strongly indicative.
