Status: Ongoing

This project is concentrated in the district of Lobitos, Talara, Piura, Peru, where chronic water scarcity has been a long-lasting challenge. The team aims to apply low-cost geophysical techniques to map the site hydrogeology at local quebrada watersheds, establish a groundwater monitoring scheme, and build local capacity by training rural community members to replicate these processes. Long-term vision of this project is the sustainable use of local groundwater resources for ecosystem restoration. This project’s ultimate objective is to provide local population of Lobitos with the ability to replicate geophysical campaigns in other quebradas around Northwestern Peru.
