The development of ground water resources in many parts of the semi-arid and arid areas where ‘hard rocks’ occur has become an increasingly important means, particularly in southern Africa, to maintain potable water supplies.
Water Resources of Hard Rock Aquifers in Arid and Semi-Arid Zones is an informative guide containing procedures for recognizing the presence of groundwater in ‘hard rocks’. It includes the new methodologies for exploiting such resources; locating and building wells; designs for boreholes and dug-wells; and methods for analysing the data on pumping tests. Selected case studies are also included.
