MSc Thesis: Improving the design of road hydraulic structures for water harvesting: The case of Freweyni – Hawzien – Abraha – We – Atsbeha road, Tigray, Ethiopia

This study explores effect of design improvements of road hydraulic structures for water harvesting. The study was conducted with a case study in the Freweyni-Hawzien-Abraha-We-Atsibha road network. Road design improvement scenarios were also developed for different channel characteristics depending on the location of the road drainage structures. Culvert site with the highest water harvesting potential was culvert site 8 with 263,650.6 m3 and culvert site 4 has the smallest water harvesting potential with 13,630.46 m3 annually, showing applying new ideology like roads for water and artificial ground water recharge are nowadays food warranty to enhance sustainable development.
