Groundwater system in Camau Peninsula has 6 main aquifers (not including very poorly productive qh aquifer), of which 4 aquifers are predominantly exploited, namely qp2-3, qp1, n22 and n21; 2 minor aquifers are qp3 and n13. Although the aquifers are located over the area, due to complicated fresh/saline interfaces in sections, exploitation and protection of groundwater sources is dealing with many problems. In the paper, information of aquifers is systematized into a map of groundwater exploitation zoning on scale 1:200,000 for the purpose of supplying essential information of water sources management in each socio-economical zone.

Keywords: Camau peninsula, potential exploitable groundwater reserve.
