The high, intergranular permeability of the coastal Quaternary and Continental Terminal aquifers, combined with shallow groundwater tables, makes them highly vulnerable to contamination, both by seawater intrusion and by pollution from urban industry and domestic waste. Many studies have been done of the risks to and effects on groundwater, particularly in the Abidjan area (e.g. Douagui et al. 2012, Kouamé et al. 2013 and Issiaka et al. 2006).

Seawater intrusion may be caused by falling groundwater levels, which themselves may be linked to intensive groundwater pumping and/or to rainfall variability (Oga et al. 2006).
