OROZCO OROZCO, Eugenio; HERRERA IBANEZ, Isaac Rodolfo  and  MUJICA CERVANTES, Albi. Intrinsic vulnerability of the aquiferous belonging to Chimaltenango’s valley, central high plateau of Guatemala. Rev Cie Téc Agr [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.4, pp.42-47. ISSN 2071-0054.

This study is about the hydrogeological conditions to aquifer in the Chimaltenango, valley, Guatemala. This is unconfined aquifer in pyroclastic deposits and the coefficients of storage go from 0,1 to 0,2. The tansmisivity to the aquifer go from 250 to 350 m2/day. A potential recharge by precipitation of 13 million m3/year is considered. The potential of groundwater is positive and an integrated groundwater resources management is necessary to guarantee the rational use and future sostenability in the valley.

Keywords : Hydrology; integrated management; groundwater potential.
