The aquifer of the Savannah of Bogotá is an important factor of socio-economic development, being the source of drinking water for the population of some municipalities in the metropolitan area of Bogotá. Due to the increased use of underground water in last years led by major productive sectors, the ground water table has lowered of several tens of meters over a period of 20-30 years of exploitation, causing lesser productivity, higher pumping costs, and possible problems of land subsidence in some areas. For these reasons, the Colombian Government deemed necessary to prepare an united-planning tool of underground water resources of this area in order to know their potentiality, identify problems or risks, and define the programs to deal with the needs of the community.
