Abstract

Faisalabad is the 3rd largest city of Pakistan where underlying aquifer mostly
contains saline water. The burgeoning population of the city needs huge quantity of
fresh water. Water requirements for the existing Faisalabad city are being met by
installation of well-fields along Jhang Branch canal, where groundwater is fresh.
The increasing population pressure requires more water and identify more suitable
sites for installation of well-field on sustainable basis. It was deemed imperative to
elevate the existing well field. The MODFLOW, a numerical groundwater model
developed by United States Geological Survey (USGS) for simulation and future
prediction of aquifer behavior in response to pumping by various well fields was
developed, calibrated and validated satisfactorily.
