This paper provides a numerical modeling output in Manukan Island aquifer using numerical model, . The modeling output showed that the low lying area of Manukan Island has been affected by seawater intrusion. The upcoming process is taking place beneath the pumping well and is attributed to seawater intrusion occurring in the low lying area of Manukan Island. There was about 14.5% of fresh-water and seawater mixing ratio in the low lying area of Manukan Island. Simulation output provided by this work using numerical model (SEAWAT-2000) can be used by local water management authorities in this case (Sabah Parks authorities), to understand the seawater intrusion in Manukan Island. The modeling output of this study is a foundation to formulate the optimal strategies for mitigation of possible future saline groundwater contamination through management and planning.
