  • Seepage from rivers and irrigation canals has contributed to waterlogging and soil salinization problems in much of the Indus Plains of W. Pakistan. These problems are being overcome in part by tube-well dewatering and deep leaching of salinized soils. The ground waters described are anaerobic and some are supersaturated with troublesome minerals such as calcium carbonate (calcite) and iron carbonate (siderite). These waters are moderately corrosive to steel. Some wells contain sulfate-reducing… CONTINUE READING
