Workshop: “Hydrogeological Study of the Eastern Edge of the Recôncavo Basin”

Water Services and Technologies (WST), in conjunction with Embasa, promoted the workshop: “Hydrogeological Study of the Eastern Edge of the Recôncavo Basin”, held in Salvador on 02/14/2019, in which the first results of the availability study water from that region were presented.

More than 30 professionals from the main regional bodies and authorities were present, such as Petrobras, Cetrel, CPRM, CERB and UFBA, who were able to learn about and discuss the three-dimensional geological model developed by WST geologists, Mauro Prado, Jhonata Oliveira and Lucas Salles, with main aquifers of the region represented in detail.

A map of vulnerability intrinsic to the contamination of these aquifers was also presented, using the DRASTIC methodology. Water Services and Technologies would like to thank everyone for participating in this discussion forum for improving hydrogeological knowledge and water potential in this area, which is of great economic and social importance for the State of Bahia. We hope to count on the participation of all in the future workshops of this project.
