Geophysical and Hydrochemical Evaluation of Groundwater Potential and Character of Abeokuta Area, Southwestern Nigeria

Moroof, O. Oloruntola, Gabriel O. Adeyemi

Abstract


Hydrogeological assessment of groundwater resources of part of Abeokuta area was carried out with a view to highlighting the potential of the aquifers to provide portable water supply, chemical character and provenance of the groundwater resources of the area. Seventy-five Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) were distributed across areas underlain by different rock types. This was complemented with fifty groundwater samples collected from wells and analyzed for the major ions and seventy two minor constituents. Three to five sub-surface geo-electric layers were delineated from the VES...
