Determination of underground water potential and water supply in some rural villages in Nigeria

This GWB project was selected for two villages in Kaduna State, Nigeria- Angwan Rimi (Basawa) and Angwan Fulani (Palladan), two peri-urban villages. The main goal of this project is to provide clean, safe and accessible water to the above two villages by applying an integrated geophysical, geological and engineering technique such as VES to plot curves, identify layers to determine the aquifer and the aquifer thickness along with the hydraulic properties of conductivity, transmissivity and aquifer thickness using the Dar Zourock fomular.
