An index based assessment of the present and future water availability was carried out in this research.
The study area was divided in four irrigation circles and further in to a grid of x m. The present and future water availability from canal diversions, rainfall, groundwater with its quality consideration and stored soil moisture was assessed. The results revealed that water availability is higher in the eastern parts of the study area and following a general trend it reduces towards the west.
The mean index value for the present scenario in the study area was determined as 0. It was further investigated that water availability is varying throughout the year. The current cropping intensities in the four irrigation circles were, and percent respectively. An increase rainfall distribution and canal diversions were observed in all future scenarios.
Moreover the future rainfall was observed to have more fluctuation throughout the year. In comparison with the present situation it was noted that under future scenarios the spring season water availability would increase. This shows that the present trend of water availability across the circles is also observed in the future scenarios.
Moreover the minimum and maximum extremes were observed to be more severe with August being the wettest and November being the driest months. More fluctuation in water availability was observed in Haveli circle, which means that comparatively more arid area are more vulnerable to climate change.
This was evident from the spring water availability in Haveli circle where the range if index was from The extreme water shortages for future scenarios in the months of May and November pose a serious threat to the major crop in the study area.
Based on the results it was found that there was a shortage of water at the critical time of sowing of wheat, cotton and sweet pea therefore suitable climate change adaptation options were forwarded to cope with these shortages.
It was suggested to adapt water conservation technologies during the sowing period of these crops as it saves time and conserve stored soil moisture for the development of crops.
H Akoto-Danso, Edmund Kyei. Assessing pollution and river recovery processes in the middle catchment of the Densu River Basin, Ghana. An assessment of pollution and river recovery was conducted in the middle catchment of the Densu River, Ghana over both rainy and dry seasons to understand the contributory factors that drive pollution in the basin.
For the purposes of water resources management, the primary focus was on the river processes taking place that allow mitigation of these impacts.
Suggestions were then made regarding mitigating interventions to conserve the resources in the river basin. Physico-chemical and microbial parameters were analyzed.
Sample collection and analysis of the physico-chemical and microbiological parameters were conducted using international and national standards and indicators.
Key informant and household interviews as well as field reconnaissance were also carried out.
The study showed that the water quality within the middle catchment of the Densu Basin varies according to sampling site and season. Among the physical parameters analyzed, colour and turbidity exceeded the WHO recommended levels for river water.
The values obtained for the water quality exceeded the Ghanaian Target Water Quality Range for raw water intended for domestic, irrigation and industrial use.This thesis, “Water and Sanitation Accessibility and the Health of Rural Ugandans,” is hereby approved in partial fulﬁllment of the requirements for the degree of MAS-.
