Abstract

This paper aims to evaluate the hydraulic characteristics of the aquifer between Al-khassa dam and Kirkuk structure, Kirkuk/ NE Iraq. Pumping tests applied for selected wells in the area to evaluate the hydraulic characteristics of the aquifer, special distribution of the water table and groundwater movement direction of the groundwater, the hydraulic properties results of five single pumping test in the study area showed that the transmissivity (T) is ranged between (2.01 to 7. 5 m2/day ), storage coefficient (Sc) ranged (6.4 * 10-3 to 7.3 * 10-2) and the hydraulic conductivity (K) is ranged between (0.025 to 0.35 m/day) that calculated by Winlog software, groundwater discharge of the area is equal to 0.163*106MCM, and the optimum distance between the wells should be about 18.8 m. The results0indicated that the aquifer type is semi-unconfined to semi-confined in Bai-Hassan Formation as shown in the geological map. Groundwater movement of the study area
showed that the direction of the groundwater is from the East side toward West around (Al- Khassa dam area).
