SARIEGO, Pedro; OLGUIN, Claudio; PIZARRO, Félix  y  MUNOZ, Marcelo. Methodology satellite lito dynamics and scanning of soils for verification or identification of new sources of water underground for the use of rural drinking water systems. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.Especial, pp.66-71. ISSN 0718-3305.

The conventional detection methods of new water sources are the named "hidrologycal studies", which display low indicators of certainty, below 50%, and in times of shortage like the one we currently experiencing, are below 25%. Therefore it's necessary to resort towards a new technological generation for new groundwater sources detection methodologies. This project proposes basically to recognize a territory inside the region, display a satelital search which signals for trails of traces of ancient tectonic movements that enable to identify ideal areas for runoffs or groundwater reservoirs, which should be scanned later. A satellite scanning intended to specific areas of the region, develop the lithodynamic analysis which will have as result the "runoff lines" definition, on these lines we will proceed to scan the grounds, for each line we'll develop a profile, in some cases up to 200 meters deep, where it will be posible to identify potential water sources, each of these points will be geo-referenced on the surface. A drilling plan properly documented through the information generated across the venture, will enable to access these detected water sources. A parallel analysis to legal elements of the problem will may allow the public investment by corresponding bodies at a national level, accordingly, the project success will have a huge impact both social and economic, not only in the region but throughout the country, it must be remember that more 15% of the national population is supplied with drinking water through APRs systems.
