OKM Detectors: Bridging the Gap in the Crisis of Water Scarcity

Water scarcity is one of the most far-reaching and serious impacts of climate change, and already millions of people around the world lack direct access to fresh drinking water. Humanitarian organizations and geologists are using water detectors to locate underground water reservoirs and aquifers that were previously hidden from view. The innovative OKM technologies effectively assist in water detection, cavity detection and further ground investigations.

In Africa alone, more than 300 million people lack adequate drinking water supplies and rely on human aid organizations for assistance. Droughts, intensified by climate change, are fostering increasingly rapid desertification, reduced soil fertility, lower groundwater levels and drying up water resources. According to an estimate by the U.N. Development Assistance Program, as many as 1.8 billion people worldwide will suffer from direct water shortages by 2080. Technological water detection is becoming an increasingly important tool for finding and accessing new sources.

Facilitating Water Detection with Water Detectors

Scientists emphasize that - in addition to effective and comprehensive measures against climate change - water scarcity can be effectively reduced primarily with new technological and innovative tools for water detection. These include water detectors such as those from OKM, which can effectively facilitate water search, cavity detection and ground investigation using a Schlumberger-based geoelectrical measurement method.

OKM Water Detectors are able to find ground water and cavities up to 250 m (820 ft) deep.
Developed, designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany.
Trust in certified and world-leading 3D ground scan technology since 1998.
Geoelectrical detectors can locate underground water resources as well as cavities.
Detected structures are visualized as simplified pictograms or in 2D or 3D diagrams.

Supporting Water Detection for Human Aid Organizations And Geologists

Today, aid organizations and geologists are already using water detectors in countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia and Mali to locate underground lakes, known as aquifers, and previously hidden ground water resources. Ground investigation for water detection and cavity detection, such as by the OKM GeoSeeker, determines the exact soil resistance and thereby indicates whether water deposits exist in the underground. Aid organizations can then initiate further measures to access the precious sources.

OKM GeoSeeker Supports Aid Organizations in Mali in the Search for Water

Back in December 2017, OKM handed over a GeoSeeker to the aid organization "Aktion Pro Afrika e. V." in Mali, which has since been used successfully to search for water and cavities. The exact execution of the measurements and the simple and flexible handling of the OKM GeoSeeker facilitate the water detection of the aid organizations enormously and save the experts other lengthy and complex processes for soil investigation.

Compact GeoSeeker Mini for fast and flexible Water Detection by Human Aid Organizations

The advantages of the GeoSeeker Mini lie primarily in its effective handiness and very simple operation. By means of precise, step-by-step and pictorial instructions on the color display, employees of relief organizations, workers in the agricultural and construction industries or private persons can be instructed in soil investigation and operate the water detector even without much previous knowledge. The handy, compact device is easy to transport and is ready to work in just a few steps.

This makes the OKM GeoSeeker Mini particularly suitable for field work by aid organizations that want to quickly and flexibly carry out a water and cavity detection in an extensive area, but also for private and commercial use if you are looking for a new water source on your property.

OKM Detectors are trusted by professionals worldwide.

Use OKM GeoSeeker for Comprehensive Water and Cavity Detection

When searching for water, OKM GeoSeeker can detect and visualize soil resistivity up to a depth of 820 ft (250 m) during soil investigation. The measured values are very accurate and are displayed in comprehensive 3D graphics, allowing accurate conclusions to be drawn during water detection, cavity detection and soil investigation.

The advancing climate change and the accompanying increasing water scarcity require better and newer technologies to optimize the finding and development of new water sources. With our water detectors OKM GeoSeeker and GeoSeeker Mini we want to contribute to facilitate the water detection and to equip institutions, private persons and relief organizations with the best possible instruments for water detection, cavity detection, soil investigation or brewing ground investigation.

Find underground water deposits, water-bearing gravel, and cavities down to 250 m (820 ft) depth with OKM Water Detectors.
