6 The city of Jeddah is one of the major cities in KSA. Located on east coast of the Red Sea. Population ~ 2.6 million. Area ~ 1200 Km 2 Extends ~ 45Km along the coast Jeddah is an industrial, commercial, educational and touristic city. - Mohorjy, (2001) Alternative Solutions and Mitigation Measures of Sewerage System, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Inter. Journal of Environmental Studies 58:683-700.

7 1.Jeddah is located between two major wadis: Wadi Fatima and Wadi Usfan with some local wadis that make Jeddah basin. 2.Climate is arid, very hot with high rate of humidity. 3.Rainfall is scarce. 4.Rainfall period: from November to April.

14 Most houses in Jeddah have two underground reservoirs, one for water supply and the other for wastewater (septic tank or cesspool). Municipality water is pumped to the water supply reservoir through a water supply network. The water supply reservoir is connected by pumps to deliver the water to several reservoirs on the roof of the house. Reservoirs on the roof, delivers water to the apartments through a system of pipes under gravity.

15 The old city of Jeddah is served by a wastewater network facility. Houses in the new districts use septic tanks. The drainage system in the houses is a network of sewer pipes that leads to the underground wastewater reservoir (septic tank). When the reservoir is full, a sewage truck is called to pump out the sewage and transport it either to the nearest sewage treatment plant or directly to the sewage pond.

16 Reasons for Groundwater Level Rise 1. Leakage from Water Supply Piping System. 2. Leakage form Underground Storage Tanks. 3. Leakage from Cesspools and Transportation. 4. Rainfall Recharge. 5. Subsurface Inflow. 6. Landscape Irrigation. 7. Hydrogeological Influence. Basamed (2002). Hydrochemecal study and bacteriological effect on groundwater in the northern part of Jeddah district, MSc.

17 Consequences of Groundwater Rise: 1. Flooding of house basements. 2. Deterioration of roads and highways. 3. Damage of building foundations. 4. Soil Contamination. 5. Offensive smell. 6. Breeding of mosquitoes. Basamed (2002). Hydrochemecal study and bacteriological effect on groundwater in the northern part of Jeddah district, MSc.

18 Abu Rizaizah et al., (1987, 1990, 1997) they predicted the water consumption will be 465 lit/capita/day and will cause groundwater level rise in the range 36-204 cm/year. The out come of the study by Basamed (2002): the average groundwater level rise is 10 cm/year. Study by Mohorjy and Khan (2006) mentioned that the groundwater level is rising at an alarming rate of 50 cm/year. Basamed (2002).

19 In Jeddah there are three sewage lakes: Al-Arbaeen Lake near downtown. Al-Amanah Lake near downtown. Briman Lake (Musk Lake) in the east of Jeddah highway. Jeddah municipality has taken actions to replenish the water in Al-Arbaeen and Al-Amanah lakes using air pumps and the lakes are undergoing a major rehabilitation projects, and the Briman lake is currently under way (Khalid Aqeel, deputy mayor for services: Arab News, Tuesday 7 August 2007)

20 Location: ~25 Km to the east of Jeddah. ~ 50,000 m 3 /day are discharged to the lake. Volume is more than 10 million m 3 No outflow.

23 Sources of Coastal Pollution: Sewerage Discharge (Treated and Untreated). Chemical Pollution (Industrial Wastes). Thermal Pollution (Desalination Plants). Hyper-Saline Pollution (Desalination Plants). Land-filling (Resorts and buildings). Dredging (Resorts and buildings). Oil Pollution (Refiners, ships, and fishing boats). Refuse: (Plastic, wood, papers, glass, etc.)

24 Mohorjy and Khan (2006) ParameterRange of Values B.O.D51-812 mg/l C.O.D 105-7680 mg/l Phosphorous (P)0.74-3.81 mg/l Nitrate (NO3) 28.3-130 mg/l Sulfate (SO4)270-4800 mg/l Coastal water is receiving considerable amount of pollutants. Highest levels of pollutants have generally been found at locations where there are lakes/creeks that receives direct wastewater inputs.

26 Setting up a reliable data base for scientific research in various fields (continuous data recording, monitoring, satellite images, GIS maps, remote sensing, etc.) Setting up an experimental watershed (monitoring components in the hydrological cycle) for hydrological studies in Saudi Arabia and its region. Reformulation of hydrological models in (semi-) arid zones. How about ecological models?

27 Innovative techniques for water desalination using solar energy. Developing techniques for water conservation. Developing technologies for wastewater treatment plants. Public awareness for environmental protection.
