Arid regions are characterized by scarce rainfall with long dry periods in-between the storms. These regions of the world are under severe and increasing pressure because the water shortage is almost the main obstacle facing their development plans. Assessment of the natural renewable water resources is urgently needed these days. This study appraises the effective groundwater recharge from ephemeral streams in arid regions. The assessment of the effective recharge is through the development of a numerical model coupling the surface model (SWMM) and the subsurface model (HYDRUS-ID).
