Invited by the Help for the Massai Foundation and supported by the Department for Water Diplomacy and the Danube Region Strategy (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary), we carried out a second groundwater exploration campaign based on our first campaign in 2018; extending our focus to the broader region of Ngorongoro District in Northern Tanzania this time.
During our field work in October and November 2019, we carried out geological and hydrogeological mapping in 3 sites. We took and analysed water samples where it was possible. We conducted electromagnetic geophysical surveys with AMT (Audiomagnetotellurics) and HLEM (Horizontal Loop Electromagnetics) method, resulting data that we used to mark two potential locations for drinking water wells. We summarized our results in a Study and we presented them in workshops in Malambo and at the Faculty of Sciences of the Eötvös Loránd University.
We acquired relevant data of 85 schools in the region (e.g.: headcount, access to drinking water, available infrastructure and technology) to provide an information package aiming to help future tender applications and the possible future project of planning the drinking water supply infrastructure.
The project was supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary via the Hungarian Water Sector Development Facility.
