The Groundwater Resources Assessment aims to provide an assessment of the occurrence and movement of groundwater, characteristic of the present aquifer and to determine the depth of the underlying aquifer. It includes an analysis of the quality of the water sources of the community and generate groundwater/hydrogeological reports which can be used for future development of their domestic water sources plans and programs.
