Session 5.02: Groundwater and global change

CHARACTERIZATION OF AQUIFER SYSTEM OF THE HIGH BASIN OF CHAMBO RIVER THROUGH GEOHYDRODYNAMICS AND GEOCHEMISTRY- CHARGING PROCESSES AND SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT.
The water resources management is crucial and implies the knowledge of dynamics, hydrochemistry and the interaction between the surface water and groundwater, as well as the relations among the urbanization, weather changes and environment impacts in cities where the main drinkable water supply comes from the subsoil. This is the case of Riobamba and Guano (Ecuador), cities whose surface and underground water resources have been monitored for decades, but without planning. Such planning is essential for a better exploitation of the hydrological cycle, taking into account the influence of the recharge and water quality on the aquifers that underlay the populations. The aim of this project is to evaluate the water resource interrelations, their complementarity, hydrodynamics, hydrochemistry and the benefits in order to create strategies for exploitation of water in these cities.
