Undertake regional mapping, assessment of groundwater potential and characterization of aquifer systems through groundwater research

Identify groundwater recharge areas, sources of recharge waters and Pilot Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) programme

Groundwater Innovations

RCGW is constantly investing to improve its state-of-the-art knowledge not only in the domains of its core expertise but also in advanced technological areas that would potentially enhance its service offering coupled with conventional approaches. For example, use of nuclear science approach i.e. Isotope Hydrology Techniques in the Water Resources Assessment – to determine groundwater flow direction, recharge rate, age and pollution, use of GIS technology for aquifer delineation, Ion Chromatography for water quality analysis. Use of Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter to measure river discharge.

Groundwater Environmental Management

Environmental and Social Impact Assessments/Studies especially Land Use, Land Cover Changes (LULCC) and aquifer pollution vulnerability.
