There are 8 wells that supply water to the community through a concrete aqueduct that is about 2m diameter .
The main subject of the field test was to determine the geotechnical site characterization of the area to correlate the results obtained through the 2D resistivity imaging and the information of the concrete aqueduct.
The determination of site characterization was performed by AGI SuperSting™ Wi-Fi R8/IP/SP instrument with 42 electrodes and 3 meters electrode spacing with a mixed array of Dipole-Dipole and Schlumberger The data Processing with EarthImager™ 2D software.
The most outstanding result was the location of the old concrete aqueduct that supplies water to the Santa Ana community in San José, Costa Rica.
