The total agriculture land of Egypt is about 7.8 million feddans (acre) which is almost entirely dependent on irrigation. 60% of the cultivated lands of northern Delta region are salt affected, while 20% of the South Delta and Middle region and 25% of the soils of Upper Egypt region are salt affected. The natural drainage could not cope with the excess water of perennial irrigation regime, drainage was given high priority.  Since the establishment of the Egyptian Public Authority for Drainage Projects (EPADP) in 1973, more than 5.8 million feddans (acre) have been provided by field subsurface drainage.
