EPA has installed permanent sampling points for long-term groundwater quality monitoring in AA.Thoddoo with the assistance of Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) Integrated water resource management (IWRM) project in the island.
Thoddoo, an island community well-known for agriculture, is highly dependent on scarce fresh water resources for farming, which accounts for a major part of their livelihood.
