"The initial water resource data provided for the effort to date includes point-specific water resource data on the existing water facilities, surface and ground water resources, the Haiti Water Resources Assessment (WRA), a country scale surface and ground water strategic planning study, and hydrogeologic maps," said Tom Spillman, Hydrologic and Environmental Analysis branch chief.
The AGC's HAT has mapped the existing water facility, surface, and ground water resources of Haiti in response to previous requirements.
Numerous water well sites have been analyzed and military well logs have been collected and posted within the WRDB in support of previous DoD support missions.
