The ongoing ResEau program is collecting extensive new hydrogeological information and producing new hydrogeological maps for Chad. Eventually, the whole country will be covered at 1:500,000 scale, and already these scale maps are available for the north and east of the country. More detailed hydrogeological maps at 1:200,000 scale are being produced for specific important areas. Digital versions of these maps can be viewed in the ResEau CDIG (Centre de Documentation et d'Information Géographique). Pdf versions of the maps, with accompanying hydrogeological descriptions, can be freely downloaded from ResEau. These maps and descriptions are the key source for detailed information on the hydrogeology of Chad.
