Esquipulas-Ocotepeque-Citalá (Trifinio) Aquifer (GGRETA Project)

The GGRETA project results indicate that the original “Trifinio Aquifer” actually consists of two individual aquifers: the ‘Esquipulas’ in Guatemala and the ‘Ocotepeque-Citalá’ shared by Honduras and El Salvador. The aquifers are connected by the River Lempa, which contributes to the discharge and recharge of the aquifers.
