Eritrea National Groundwater Assessment

Umvoto Africa are currently appointed to undertake groundwater assessment, aquifer mapping and wellfield development for the State of Eritrea. In partnership with WSP, IGS (Botswana) and GREDCO (Eritrea) the project aims to identify regional groundwater targets on Zoba (provincial) scale though GIS and remote sensing techniques. Further phases are geared to support these findings through relevant and targeted field mapping, hydrocensus, geophysical surveying, exploratory drilling, hydrochemical analysis and hydraulic test-pumping of boreholes. The project aims to develop up to thirteen wellfields, while offering capacity building to relevant stake holders in Eritrea.
