Groundwater Monitoring System



For many years, we have been conducting groundwater monitoring in 29 provinces of Afghanistan through the construction of 363 Ground Water Monitoring Wells covering approximately 85 percent of the river basins of the country. Our network has been a unique source of information regarding the qualitative and quantitative status of groundwater in the country. If the in-country security situation permits, our Groundwater Monitoring Teams visit these wells on a monthly basis to measure water levels and test water samples on a semi-annual basis.

The collected data is then analysed, interpreted and mapped with the help of a specialised Integrated Water Resources Data Management System.

As the only nation-wide data source on the subject in Afghanistan, the system provides crucial long-term scientific information regarding groundwater quality and quantity and the sustainability and functionality of water points in support of planning of water supply projects by DACAAR and other WASH actors.
