A number of technical alternatives for improving the water supply to Gedaref, Sudan, are investigated. Of the short term improvements proposed, none is likely to improve upon the present system of continual digging of a channel to convey river water to the silted intakes. In the long term, construction of a radial collector well infiltration gallery system appears to offer advantages over a new surface intake and improvements to the existing treatment plant.
