Overview of the project
The study includes the thorough characterisation of the current state of aquifers that are a major source of water for Guadalajara. The main objectives for this study are as followed:
- To receive and complete all knowledge on underground water sources in the Guadalajara region
- To describe the physical and geological environment in which the research is conducted
- To describe the current demand for drinking water including a census on the exploitation as well as other planned requests on the project in different scenarios
- To define the geometry around the aquifers by exploring the geophysics, the rock cuttings and the superficial and structural geology
- To characterise the chemicals of the underground water and determining its areal distribution by establishing geo-chemical factors that control presence and mobility by identifying the areas where any alteration takes place
- To establish underground water recharge zones
- To assess contamination vulnerability of underground waters.
Carry out and characterisation study on aquifers in the urban region of Guadalajara by obtaining results and inputs that constitute a solid base for directing public policies guaranteeing a long-term access to water thanks to an efficient and appropriate management system.
