Integrated groundwater potentials and aquifer vulnerability study in parts of Anambra State, Nigeria

This project aims towards improving potable water access and supply for the benefit and socio-economic wellbeing of inhabitants based on scientific data and recommendation on sustainable exploitation, development, and management of groundwater resources in the Awka Capital Territory by using Vertical electrical sounding (VES), Electromagnetic (EM) and Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) techniques to interpret geo-electric sections and model to give the subsurface lithology distribution, and provide scientific data that will inform groundwater management policy decision making and improve access to potable water resources by the communities of study area.
