Abstract: "In the Indus basin of Pakistan, farmers use skimming wells to extract the upper freshwater layer to supplement their canal irrigation supplies. These farmers and drillers evolved skimming well technologies without any expert technical guidance. This has resulted in economical, technical, operational and environmental problems and in the low performance of these tube wells. This paper presents the results of a case study conducted in a Salinity Control and Reclamation Project area of the Indus basin, to identify these problems and solve them with the participation of farmers."
