Description To evaluate the long-term sustainable yield of the Kwajalein groundwater body, and also to investigate methods of optimum development of this resource, a total of 23 observation wells was constructed, from which the thickness, areal extent, and quality of the Kwajalein groundwater lens was monitored. During the past year, freshwater storage in the lens has averaged 1.02 x 10^6 m^3 (270 mil gal) and has fluctuated more than 20% in response to recharge and discharge events. Because of the short...
