A huge new water source has been discovered in the arid Turkana region of northern Kenya, which could supply the country for 70 years, the government says.

The discovery brings hope to the drought-hit region, tweeted Environment Minister Judi Wakhungu.

Does anyone know how this large aquifer went undetected for so many years by hydrologists?

How deep is it? Do you know where I can find any articles published by hydrologists or the UN regarding this topic?

I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm posting correctly :)
