HIGH GROUNDWATER IN IRRIGATED REGIONS: MODEL DEVELOPMENT FOR ASSESSING CAUSES, IDENTIFYING SOLUTIONS, AND EXPLORING SYSTEM DYNAMICS
Waterlogging occurs in irrigated areas around the world due to over-irrigation and lack of adequate natural or artificial drainage. This phenomenon can lead to adverse social, physical, economic, and environmental issues, such as: damage to crops and overall land productivity; soil salinization; and damage to homes and building foundations. Solutions to waterlogging include implementation of high-efficient irrigation practices, installation of artificial drainage systems, and increased groundwater pumping to lower the water table. However, in regions governed by strict water law, wherein groundwater ...
