Abstract

The salt-polluted soils in the Koular watershed are estimated at 110 hectares and are located on the right bank of the watershed near the Koular-Keur Saloum Diane lateritic track, which contains a bridge that is the only outlet for the flow of salt water into the watershed. This bridge could be chosen for the construction of the anti-salt dike considering a flood with a ten-year frequency estimated at 28.77 m3/s to anticipate disasters.

Keywords: Watershed; Koular; Population.
