[HGG02-P05] Hydrogeomorphological and environmental geographical land condition of groundwater use areas along the coast of Lake Victoria, west Kenya
Keywords:groundwater use, hydrogeomorphology, environmental geography, Lake Victoria, Kenya
The lowlands consist mainly of fluvio-colluvial deposits corresponding to principal aquifer, which has high permeability coefficient (1.0E-5 to 1.0E-6 m/s). In the vicinity of the groundwater observation points, water table depth exists 10 to 15 m below the current river bed (dissected valley bottom), approximately 25 m below the surface.
Environmental geographical conditions which are able to maintain the groundwater environment and use as described above will be shown in the presentation.
