Groundwater Exploration Geophysical Study near Gonaives, Haiti
Northwater just returned from Haiti where we performed a groundwater exploration geophysical study using CSAMT/MT electromagnetic geophysical equipment. The logistics of performing the study were challenging and arduous; nonetheless, challenges were overcome and the project was completed successfully. The purpose of the study is to help solve a severe water supply challenge for a low-income housing development for earthquake and hurricane victims. Three wells had already been drilled prior to the study with no luck finding potable water. The study is focused on characterizing a deeper Eocene aquifer and delineating subsurface cracks and fractures where shallower water is most likely to exist in shallower Miocene units.
