Water Supply Source Evaluation

Anse-à-Galets, Haïti

The Direction Nationale de l’Eau Potable et de l’Assainissement (DINEPA) contacted V3 to perform a study to evaluate the feasibility of expanding the use of a small aquifer near Anse-à-Galets. The investigation included a survey of the aquifer boundaries, a seismic geophysical survey to define thickness of alluvium, site excavation to characterize the alluvium and determine depth to water, and testing to determine aquifer properties.  A report provided aquifer recharge, yield estimates and provided conceptual design to increase water yield by 50%.
