This report examines the current water management strategies implemented within the agrarian village of Adghagh, Morocco. As drought continues to undermine Morocco's agricultural sector, the village's water sources are being depleted and villagers are forced to redrill wells in search of more water. Because drilling to great depths is expensive, and because ultimately the water resources of the region are limited, the goal of our project was to evaluate water use and consumption within the village and propose a series of short-term and long-term solutions that could both in terms of water conservation and economic efficiency potentially alleviate the situation both resourcefully and economically.
