Madagascar Groundwater Projects
Particular groundwater projects in Madagascar include the following:
In 1988, the UN (1988) report stated that the Hydrogeology Division of the Ministry of Trade and Industry held an archive that included the following documents with groundwater information: - A catalogue with over 700 reports on hydrogeological works carried out in Madagascar by the Hydrogeology Division - An inventory of water points and their locations shown on maps at 1:500,000 and 1:100,000 - Unpublished maps of aquifers at a scale of 1:500,000, of the Majunga, Tulear, Far-South and Morondava regions
In 1968 a UN hydrogeological study project was carried out in the Western Basin between Tulear and Morondava, with electrical resistivity geophysical prospecting and borehole drilling and test pumping. The results of this study are presented in BRGM 1968.
A number of groundwater exploration projects were carried out in the 1950s, with electrical resistivity geophysical prospecting and borehole drilling and testing.
The first summary reports on the geology of Madagascar, published in 1929, contained information about groundwater and mineral and thermomineral water.
