Groundwater Relief has been working in Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh for over 8 months since November 2017. Three hydrogeologists have been embedded with Medecins Sans Frontieres Holland (MSF-OCA), on 2 month rotations supporting the drilling of multiple wells in the Kutupalong/Balukhali refugee camp. Many improvements in well installation and groundwater development have been implemented over this time in collaboration with MSF-OCA engineers.
Groundwater Relief has also investigated groundwater resources availability at Leda refugee camp in the southern part of the Cox's Bazaar peninsular on behalf of the International Organisation for Migration. Findings from a Pilot Drilling Programme, carried out in Leda, can be viewed here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2
As part of the work an online GIS map was developed to bring together field based information collected: https://arcg.is/1y850P
