Pr e face
Piroress Report No. 65-B is a summary of the work performed by the Planning and Reclamation Engineering Divisions, and the progress of that work during the Second Quarter of the Fiscal Year 1965-66, October through December.
These offices are a part of the Projects Preparation Division of thile Wapda Ground
Water and Reclamation Program. Their activities cove! all phases of investigation and project planning for the development of irrigation anid drainage programs in the Upper Indus Basin.
The 20 million acres involved in these programs are vitally important to the future of Pakistan. Thie purpose of Wapda'a Ground Water and Reclamation Projects is to enhance the aoricult:ral economy of Pakistan.
Tne U pier Indus Basin's agricultural lands lie between thie outwash plains of the foothills of the Himalayas and the command of Panjnad Headworks. These lands have becoiie toe agricultural complex of West Pakistan. They are fed by the waters of the Indus River and its tributaries, the Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, Beas, and Pabjnad Rivers. The problems within the doabs are both regional and unique. Whether the solutions to these problems of salinity control and reclamation involve additional water supplies, adequate drainage, or agricultural planning, thi y all require a great deal of investigation and analysis.
In these investigational and analytical phases evolve the project planning and reclamation engineering activities of the Engineers, Tipton and Kalrmbach, Inc., and the Project Prdparation Circle of Wapda. From investigations and analyses come the recommerreidations, reports, and design criteria for tubewells, the engineering of new irrigation and drc : ,-e channels, and the rernodell ing of ex isting syste ms.
From conception to completion, all of these projects require the delicate balance of engineering, economics, an d agricultural planning.

Tihe PLANNING and RECLAMATION ENGINEERING Sections of Projects Preparation function independently and conc rnitanttl/. Each produces vital information for the other, and, t gcthler they formulate project reports, design criteria, and the engineering basis for fortilcoming ground water and reclamation projects. The Sections are composed of indigenous and expatriate personnel whose assignments cover all phases of investigation and planning in the Ground Water and Reclamnation Programs.
The first group, PLANNING, is concerned primarily within the regional planning
activities, ground water and surface water balance, soil and water studies, and the planning .,f new pilojects It is also an agency of investigation; not only for the details concerned with future surface and ground water programs, but also into the operation of present and past reclamation scheiemes. It provides the guidance for feasible and econromical ground water and reclamation projects.
The second group, RECLAMATION ENGINEERING, concerns itself with thie physical aspects of reclamation programs. It is this group which provides the working data for the location of irrigation and drainage tubewells, the survey and design of drainage and irrigation wrks, the production of drawings for construction and planning purposes, and the assembly of information from various sources for all phases of the ground water and reclamation programs.
The following is a brief outline of the offices within each of the groups:

The following Table, "Planning, Preparation and Construction Schedule for Tubewell
Projects", gives the outline of project phasing for the calendar years 1965 and 1966 for WAPDA Projects 2, 3, 4, and 5., More than 7,800 tubewells for irrigation and drainage reclamation are involved to various degrees of completion over this two-year period. This also represents about 75 percent of the tubewell program planned for the Third Five-Year Plan.
The total number of tubewells planned for each Project is given, also the breakdowns
for the subprojects, units, and contracts are shown with their respective tubewell requirements. Planning has been completed for Projects 2,3, and 4. Planning is underway on Project 5, and much of the data for the forthcoming Project Report have been evaluated to formulate the working parameters for project analyses Project 2 is in several stages of Construction and Preparation. Preparation has been completed for most of Project 3, and Construction is in progress. Increased activity in construction phases will be forthcoming throughout 1966 for Project 3 and Project 41
The field silting activity and preparation ,or construction in Project 4, Upper Rechna Doab, has shifted from the /Warala-Ravi Unit to the Mangtonwala Unit. Negotiations werecompleted to transfer the Contract for 300 tubewells to the new area. The Marala-Ravi Unit has been delayed because of the difficulties which arose out of the National Emergency, and the location of the Unit in relationship to the India-Pakistan border. Field siting is in progress for the Mangtanwala Unit which will enable construction to proceed. Contract Documents for the Mangtanwala Unit are essentially completed, and they are scheduled to be published about the middle of January 1966. The preliminary tubewell location map showing office siting and access to the Unit has been revised to reflect the contract limitations in the area between Degh Nallah and the Ravi River where the Mangtanwala Unit is situated.
Regional Planning is culminating a number of subject studies on water use, design
criteria, agricultural studies, and related investigations pertaining to the Ground Water and Reclamation Program into the forthcoming Regional Planning Report, Many of the studies have essentially been completed for correlation with related data, and the culmination of subject reports on a regional basis is scheduled for mid-1966. For details concerning the areas of investigation and concentrated study, see the chart, "Progress of Regional Planning Operations", included as Plate 2 in this progress report. Plate 2 shows the progress of regional planning up to the end of tie Second Quarter of the Fiscal Year 1965-66.

74 Technical personnel positions at the end of the Second Quarter of the Fiscal
Year 1965-66 (October through December).
Note: During the Second Quarter, Dr. E.C. Olsen terminated. He headed the Engineering
group of Regional Planning up to the tine of his leaving in December. Gilbert N.
Haycock was appointed to fill that vacancy as Civil Engineer.
During the Second Quarter of the Fiscal Year 1965-66, October through December, the Planning personnel worked on the processing of data and the preparation of text and illustrations for the forthcoming Project 5 Report. The group worked on many related studies and investigations for the Regional Plan Report which is scheduled for publication during the last months of 1966.
Data and parameters were precipitated from concentrated analytical reviews by the group, and through their coordinated efforts with the World Bank Organization, WAPDA, WASID, and in discussions with various other governmental agencies concerned with the problems of economics and engineering in developing the phases of the ground water and reclamation programs.
In addition to the progress shown on the Project 5 Report and the Regional Plan Report, data were assembled for the primary investigational phases of tie Project 6 area (the Panjnad Canal Command of the Bahawalpur region).
Monitoring work continued on the tubewells of Projects 1 and 2, but this work was at a reduced scale compared to the investigations and data collection of the previous quarters. This reduction was primarily due to the urgency of thie data collection program for regional and pro ject planning.
During the quarter Dr. E.C. Olsen terminated, leaving the Planning staff in December Gilbert N. Haycoc. was appointed to head the engineering group of Regional Planning.
The Planning group worked with tie Water and Soils Investigation Division of WAPDA on the preparation of soils data and maps for the areas of Bari Doab This cooperative work with WASID was also done in areas of study concerning ground water characteristics and the collection of data for water quality and water supply studies.
Throughout the quarter meetings were held to coordinate policy and planning procedures for iie culmination of data for regional and project planning reports. Data were collected from governmental agencies, such as the Irrigation Department, the Bureau of Statistics, field offices of various subdivisions of rural government concerning the economics and welfare of the farmers and industrial development, from cooperative agencies and from exchange of data within other investigational organizations.
Many special studies were made in the fields of economics for planning and for the daily requirements of vital information for the functions of the Projects Manager. Meetings were held to determine the effectiveness of the scope of investigations for regional and project studies, and decisions were made on the methods of developing the saline and non-saline zones of the project
Dr. Milton Fireman and David W. Greenrnan of the Denver Planning Office were in
Lahore to participate in these discussions on saline and non-saline zone development and as a result of a number of studies and analyses and consultations with them, a change was made in the definition of the salinity zones to reflect water salinify and to better define the mixing areas.
Four junior engineers from the Reclamation Engineering Division were on temporary duty with Planning to assist in the data collection program and to work on Project 5, Lower Rechna Doab. Because of the immediate need for the processing and assembly of data for that region, much of the effort put forth by Planning during the Second Quarter was directed toward the definition of the project, its requirements and economics.
Further work was done in the field of linear programming of data for project and regional analysis. Data on water requirements, climate, cropping patterns, etc., were sent to Texas A&M for machine processing and the results have been received. Tnese tabulated data have now been analyzed by the Planning group to project the requirements of the Project 5 area, and to provide the working parameters for project evaluation
The Planning office initiated several project analysis studies and made illustrations that depict the water SU pply allocations for the Indus System showing natural flow and storage disbursenents according to the official water plans. The summary of progress on the following pages is divided into two parts, (1) Regional Planning, and (2) Project Planning for the period of tf~e Second Quarter of the Fiscal Year 1965-66, October through December.
REGION. PLANNING. .R.E G 1 0 IN AA.L P L A t,, N I N. G..."
Th6 activities of the Regional Planning group and the other members of the Planning staff. whose investigations and data collection pertained primarily to the regional aspects of the Ground Water and Reclamation.Pr6grarn are given in detail for the Second Quarfer of the Fiscal Year. 1965-66 in this progress report. The Regional Planning group is headed by SoW. Mao, and the progress reported follows the general trend of the special subject investigations and reports as shown on Plate 2.
The data collection program continued in force, but with some reduced activities reported generally in the field collection of data. Historic canal supplies, surface drainage data, and information from private tubewell surveys were actively being compiled.
Several regional planning papers were completed during the quarter in areas of economic interest, as follows: (1) Population estimates, (2) Land holdings, (3) Fertilizer distribution and consumption, (4) Crop acreages, cropping patterns and intensities, and (5) Industrialization.
Work was done with the World Bank Consultants on the assembly of cropping data and on standards for economic analyses. Union Council cropping data for most of the Punjab were furnished or made available to the World Bank, as well as access to other agricultural data available in the Planning office.
Three Tehsils for Lower Bari Doab were completed during the quarter for private tubewell survey data. Multan District will be completed in the near future and then the data collection activities will move updoab to the Montgomery and Lahore Districts.
Plate 2 shows the definition of background studies for the Regional Plan Report, and the progress of development of datafor compilation and analysis. The Report is scheduled for publication during the last of 1966. The remaining progress reported by Regional Planning is described herein as the work undertaken or completed during the report period by the Planning group in connection with regional planning studies according to the outline of the "Progress of Regional Planning Operations", Plate 2, and the primary topics therein.
1I Collection, Preliminary Analysis, and Compilation of Basic Data:
Progress continued on the collection of data concerning surface water supplies and canal diversions. Data were collected on the monthly withdrawals distributary by distributary for all the canal systems in the Northern Zone for the period 1952 through.1964. In addition to the fied collection of data on historic canal supplies, surface drainage, and the density of private tubewell dovelopmrient, office tabulation of data continued in progress. This tabblation included the determination of total withdrawals, median monthly withdrawals, and special studies. By the end of the quarter, data for the following canal .systems had been collected and summarized on a distributary basis:
Paharpur Central Bari Doab
D.G. Khan Lower Bari Doab
Muzaffargarh Dipa Ipur
Rangpur Eastern Sadiqia
Upper Chenab Fordwah
Lower Chenab Pakpattan
B.RoB.D. Bahawal I
The natural flows of all five rivers of the Indus System were collected from the Discharge Division, and the data were analyzed at multiple points along the river systems, along with the withdrawals by canals at the headworks diversions. These data were collected on a 10-day basis for use in regional and project planning. The data were partially analyzed and summarized during te6 quarter. Several data collection forms were made for recording the data and the special items of interest for planning needs.
Compilation of data was made based on the historic canal command units, and a separation is being made into post IBP canal units. Several meetings were held with the Remodelling Organization.conceirning the operation of the Pakpattan Canal Islam Headworks Link, and the functioning of the irrigation system. Cooperative work was done with the World Bank on the establishment of basic units for future water distribution by canal command; a correlation of distribution concepts and data.
A correlation is being made concerning the Planning climatological zones with the data available from Harza, nit. Progress was reported in the efforts to reduce the fundamental statistics to workable data that would be compatible to project analysis by all investigators concerned. Data were collected frorr the Regional Meteorlogical Center at Lahore for regional planning., And, data were summarized for detailing climatological zones for the Punjab for agricultural planning purposes.
Wasid prepared additional soils maps and data concerning soils samples and analyses. The Planning group assisted in the preparation of data and the production of prints of the soil details and survey sheets. A general review was made of the regional.planning aspects of soil classification and more specifically to the soil characteristics of the Project 5 area. The regional soils data were sent to the Denver Office far further review and analysis,
"Agricultural data for the new command areas by canal to be used as units of physical water distribution were analyzed in respect to their surface water requirements, utility of saline ground water, and future water supplies
2. Preliminary- Studies and Development of Design Criteria:
Studies were made on the use of concentrated leaching to utilize ground water of higher salinity,
Cropping patterns were analyzed to reflect the soil groupings and the climatological zoning for regional and project areas.
Discussions were held with Harza and the World Bank on the. consumptive use water requirement studies and the applications of data to project planning. Proceedings have been initiated to generalize irrigation water requirements for future cropping patterns and intensities.
Work was done with WASID on aquifer characteristics, and the new data are being weighted in regional and local adaptations for representative figures that can be used for different areas o the Punjab.
3. Special Technical Studies:
Canal seepage and conveyance system loss studies were being finalized on the basis of theory and the data available, along with the previously published information, to arrive at a more functional canal seepage loss and irrigation recharge distribution over a canal command area.
Further work was done with the Wasid staff in a critical examination of canal seepage data and studies in the fields of seepage and recharge.
In the field of tubewell design, progress is being, made in the evaluating of optimum tubewell designs for the Punjab, in tubewell hydraulic design criteria, and special studies in tubewell performance. The effects of extremely shallow tubowells on tie recovery of tolerable ground waters in saline areas were also a part of the special technical studies.
River gain and loss studies and the feasibility of ground water mining continued during the quarter. Harza worked with Planning in the formulation of parameters for ground water mining studies The physics of the mining programs have esentially been completed, but.the correlation to specific areas of development still remains to be reduced to a functional concept.,
The Chaj 2-B Analog Model study was revised to reflect new input data, and the data
were sent to United States Geological Survey at Pheonix, Arizona, USA, for further analysis of regional data.
Preliminary water.distribution and allocation studies for tho Punjab on a regional basis were beguie and the program is being' set up in more detail. Sever! 1charts."nd maps were prepared to show the allocations of treaty waters, and the distribution,. of surface and ground water supp Ies.
Feasibility Reports have been prepared for Projects 1, 2, 3, and 4. The project studies for the quarter were centered around the preparation of text and data for the Project 5 area of Lower Rechna Doab. Work was also being done on the background studies for Project 6, the area commanded by Pan jnad Headworks in theBahawalpur region (Panjnad-Abbasia Canals). General review and specific interest studies were made in the other projects, and the following is a brief discussion of the work that was directed by thile Planning group toward the development and operational surveillance of the tubewell projects.
PROJECT ONE Central Rechna Doab.
Minor review work was done on the performance of irrigation tubewells in the Project 1
area for the benefit of tubewell design studies, and the operational data were analyzed to update the tubewell records, Data collection continued on water levels, drawdown, and water quality. Cropping patterns and agricultural productivity were studied for project and regional purposes.
PROJECT TWO Cha Doab.
Work was in progress in the Mona Experimental Scheme. The agriculture group initiated crop cutting experiments and several members of the staff were actively engaged in the activities of the Mona Experimental Scheme and its operational functions. Histories of crops and present cropping patterns were analyzed, along with water requirements and water deliveries. The observations from this experimental tubewell unit will be used to modify and to implement future development.
Data concerning tubewell performance and developing and testing procedures were
obtained from the Khadir Unit and the construction areas of the Upper Jhelum Subproject. Water quality data and stratigraphy were analyzed for the UJC area in c,:njuncti n with the tubewell construction program.
Data were assembled for the modification of the 2-B Analog Model. This information was transmitted to the USGS Data Processing Center at Pheonix, Arizona for further analysis. Thie results of this analysis will be used to shape the policy of development in the Lower Jhelum Canal command area of Chaj Doab.
PROJECT THREE' Lower ThaI Doab,
Tubewell supplies, Canal supplies and historice deliveries were tabulated in conjunction with the regional and project water supplyanalyses. The reld t.dproblems of the development of ground water supplied anid the proximity of the saline zones were studied alongwith drainage and canal recharge investigations.
PROJECT FIVE Lower Rechna Doab
Most of the concentrated effort by the Planning staff centered around the development of the Project 5 Report. The preliminary drafts for five chapters of the' repoqrt'were completed duringnthe'quarter, along with several special illustrations to be included in the report.
Collection of outlet register data was completed up to about 95 percent, and detailed soils study was done from Wasid data and from field investigations.

The activities of the Reclamation Engineering Divison during the Second Quarter of the 1965-66 Fiscal Year included the publication of Contract Documents, preparation of engineering drawings for construction purposes, detailing of design criteria, field and office siting of tubewells, and the survey and inspection of drainage works. Data collection remained a rrajor part of the activities of the field crews, and many special assignments for data were completed from government offices in Lahore and distant-parts of the Punjab.
There were increased activities in field siting of tubewells to facilitate the negotiation of the transfer of the Marala-Ravi Unit contract to the area of the Mangtanwala Unit Many of the field personnel were detailed to this portion of Project 4 to expedite the data collection and tubewell siting program. The Warala-Ravi Unit has been delayed because of its proximity to the Pakistan-India border and the travel restrictions which were enforced during the period of the National Emergency. The construction had just begun in August and field sites were being prepared for the Contractor, Geoistrazivanja of Zagreb, Yugoslavia. Office siting was completed for the Mangtanwala Unit for 300 tubewells; and an adjoining contract area for 500 tubewells, the Sheikhupura Unit, was also completed for nearly half of the preliminary office sites.
Throughout the quarter, meetings were held with the Chief Engineer of the WAPDA Ground Water and Reclamation Divison, Sayyid Hamid; the Deputy Chief Engineer, Sardar Allah Bakhsh; the Project Director, Khan Abdul Hamid Khan; and other members of the general staff of Wapda to coordinate the tubewell and drainage construction programs. Policy and planning meetings were also held with the personnel of the Planning and Construction Divisions, and with the Projects Manager, Robert C. Bolger. Much of the concentrated effort during the report period was directed toward the immediate needs of Wapda and the Consultant in providing data and field information for the flexible tubewell siting and construction program. Data required by Planning were also furnished on priority basis to meet the requirements of the accelerated project and regional planning schedules.
Progress schedules pertaining to "Design Production" were maintained throughout the quarter, and these progress schedules were submitted to Wapda.
Work continued on the production of soils data maps for WASID for the Bari Doab area. A few hundred drawings remain to be completed out of the estimated 600 photo-tracings of detailed field sampling and plotting of soil information. The work is being supervised by the draftsmen of this Division under the direction of Wasid representatives. The tracings are being sent to the drafting office on completed sub-divisional basis, and they are being transmitted as individual units father than by random individual photo-tracings There are approximately 30 to 40 photographs for each subdivision.
Contract Documents were published for "Fall Structure Cum V.R. Bridge Mona Drain R.D. 1 -900", and revisions were made in the Contract Documents for "Chot-Rukan Drain Structures"
Meetings were held withthe Consultants staff, World Bank Survey, and Lower Indus
Project planning personnel for the purpose of gathering units costs for estimating costs of canal remodification and tubewell projects.
Several field trips were made by members of the Surface Drainage Section in search of field information to clarify the design details on drainage works, and the Field Engineering Section was in the field most of the quarter on the problems of tubewell siting, data collection, and survey of distribution works. Four junior engineers were temporarily detailed to the Planning Division to assist in the data collection program for the Project 5 area. This was done to facilitate the demand for data for the project planning phases of Project 5, Lower Rechna Doab.
Field siting of tubewells was active in the Upper Jhelum Subproject of Project 2, Chaj
Doab. In Project 3, Lower Thial Doab, field siding of tubewells and watercourse mapping were in. progress for KotAdu Unit, Rangpur Unit, and Alipur Unit. For Project 4, Upper Rechna Doah, the siting of tubowells shifted from the Marala-Ravi Unit to the Mangtanwala Unit, and upward into the Sheikhupura Unit. For details of the progress in tubewell siting see the progress reportfedby thle Field Engineering Section.
