Hydrogeological Desk Study, PoC3 IDP Camp

Juba 2014

On behalf of the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) Groundwater Relief carried out a rapid assessment of groundwater availability at an IDP camp in Juba. The assessment was completed within 8 days of receiving the request.

The study, supported by remote sensing information, found that groundwater availability below the site itself was limited, but a large regional fracture zone was identified to the north of the camp.
