Title

Groundwater development in rural Lemoa, Guatemala

Author

Erin Lepper

Abstract

"In rural Lemoa, located in the central highlands of Guatemala, safe, reliable sources of drinking water are often a rare commodity. In these areas of Guatemala, methods of acquiring drinking water include the capture/collection of rainwater, routing spring water to villages, simply utilizing surface water, and high digging shallow groundwater wells...Drilling deep groundwater wells is the most effective method of reaching groundwater in these areas, however there is still a lack of hydrogeologic data limiting the efficiency of this method...In this research, the Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) method of geophysics was used in combination with pre-existing well logs to determine which previously found formations were water-bearing"--Abstract, leaf iv.
