Draft:Groundwater in Malawi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The two most important aquifer systems in Malawi are (Chavula 2012):

- unconsolidated alluvium in the major valleys and lake shore plains, which forms a high yielding aquifer in many areas; and
- crystalline basement rocks, which cover much of the country, and form a low yielding aquifer.

There are only small occurences of other rock types. Although these can be important locally, relatively little is known of their hydrogeological properties.
