2-The rock composition (litologiy) in this area, is represented mainly by clay, which covered by loamy, clayey soil. The thickness of soil is estimated to reach up to 2m.-3-3- The site is located on a mountain slope. It has a depression- like shape that surrounded by a number of hills(altitudes between 1900-2046m. above sea level).This gives a chance to surface water to accumulate within this depression making a Water catchments.-4-4- The highly clayey content of the top soils as well as of the exposed clays in the presumed site creates obvious criteria of water erosion, notably gulling and sheet erosion. This suggests a condition of instability in most instances.

Locating suitable situation for water reservoir construction. Up on the request of Cooperative Union of Saint Simon Hadeth-El-Joubbeh, to make a site investigation to presume the most suitable site for water reservoir construction in Hadeth-El-Joubbeh area, the following are the recommended points:1-1- With respect to the estates owned by the Cooperative Union of Saint Simon Hadeth-El-Joubbeh, the most favorable site for excavating water reservoir(pond) is cut by the following coordinates:34° 13´ 15" E΄, and 35˚ 56΄ 52˝ N

-8-The major purpose of the reservoir is to restrict water for irrigating a land of about 30ha , the following dimensions are recommended: A-length = 90meter(nearly East to West)-B-Width =60 meter(nearly North to South)-C-Depth=4meter.

-5- A primary drainage system cuts within the studied area. As this system has the capacity of transporting water from the mountain hills to its outlets, it recommended restricting these waters by constructing water pond on the neighborhood of this system.-6-6- The presence of an unstable embankment in the western side of the suggested site makes it necessary to excavate the pond away from this embankment with at least 7 meters.-7-7- A channeling system is preferable to the built on the surrounding of the pond. This system helps in slowing down the water flow energy to the pond as well as to regulate the water discharge.

-9-This means a volume of about 21000m 3 of water will restrict.To protect any development of silting processes or soil and rock accumulation, a trench is recommended to be dug in the front of the accumulation, a trench is recommended to be dug in the front of the pond. (Details of trench shape will be clarified in the attached figure).-10-10- A cross-section (in the attached figure) must be followed to make the pond capable to containing the water bulk, thus mitigate any rifting during the torrential seasons.N/B: Attached is the figure design.Agriculture Engineer Lotf Karam Karam
