Numerical modeling and hydrochemical analysis of the current and future state of seawater intrusion in the Todos Santos aquifer, Mexico
The Todos Santos aquifer, Baja California Sur, Mexico, provides the sole source of freshwater to the town of Todos Santos, and is utilized for domestic and agricultural needs crucial to the town's economy. The region is characterized by an arid climate. Major recharge to the aquifer is supplied from intermittent cyclones. Irregular and unpredictable recharge rates combined with population growth resulting from resort development put the Todos Santos aquifer at risk of overexploitation, causing potentially permanent water quality degradation by salinization as a result of seawater intrusion. ...
