Reconnaissance[edit]

Reconnaissance is an essential first step in understanding groundwater resources and siting new water boreholes. It is a desk study: gathering any available relevant maps and information (e.g. from existing reports, academic papers etc) on geological and hydrogeological conditions.

An introduction to reconnaissance techniques that are useful for borehole siting can be found in the chapter Reconnaissance in MacDonald et al. (2005), which can be freely downloaded online.
