Huge Underground Water Reserve Found In Kenya Could Spark Development And Solve Water Problems

Scientists have found an underground water reserve in Kenya that could meet the country's entire water needs for the next 70 years. Scientists used satellite, radar and geological technology finding an aquifer - an underground layer of water containing 200 billion cubic meters of fresh water.
The team put together by UNESCO and the Kenyan government discovered the Lotikipi Basin Aquifer, 1000 feet underground measuring 62 miles by 41 miles and it is significantly larger than any other aquifers discovered in the region. It holds 900% more water than Kenya's current reserves.
The whole thing is huge! And it's great news for Kenya since it deals with droughts too often. If Kenya's government is able to create the proper infrastructure to support it, nomadic tribes people can settle down instead of searching for rain. Development can also happen.
Alain Gachet, the CEO of Radar Technologies International and the guy behind the search for water in Kenya, and his team used a mapping system they called WATEX to find the water. Using satellite, radar and geological maps, they combined them to see what's underneath the ground and it was originally meant to find mineral reserves in Africa but is now being used to find water.
Makes you wonder if there are any other aquifers around anywhere else.
There’s a spreadsheet program that comes with the Mac Operational System which is called Apple Numbers. Actually, it’s a part of Apple’s iWork suite.
