ABSTRACT
In tropical Colombia, where 75% of groundwater exploitation is concentrated in two limited areas, successful agricultural ventures proved its economic value. It is therefore imperative to assess the development possibilities of this almost untouched resource to complement surface water in irrigation and water supply projects, and in some cases to replace contaminated sources. The present paper introduces the major aquifer units of the country and discusses the state of exploitation and approximate recharge values.

RESUME
Dans la Colombie tropicale ou 75% de l'exploitation des eaux souterraines est concentrée dans deux zones limitées, le succès des entreprises agricoles a prouvé
leur valeur économique. Aussi, l'évaluation des possibilités de développer l'exploitation de ce genre de ressources en eau a peine utilise est indispensable pour completer ou remplacer les eaux de surface polluées, dans les projets d'irrigation et d'alimentation en eau. Cet article présente les aquiféres principaux du pays et discute du stade de leur exploitation et des valeurs du taux de recharge approximatif.
