Mapping subsurface groundwater contamination zones using electrical resistivity methods in Osmania university campus, Hyderabad, Telangana state, India


Dubba Vijay Kumar, G Ramadass

An investigation has been laid of the groundwater potentials and contamination studies of Osmania University campus area, Hyderabad using Hyrogeological and Geoelectrical surveys. Hydrogeological investigations from data of 35 observation wells form the campus, the depth to the water table varies form 4 to 20m and study area, while the direction of groundwater flow is towards the N-S and NW-SE. The average depth water table is 8.5m below the surface. 103 Virtical Electrical Soundings were conducted with maximum electrode spacing of 150m, the results reveals that substantial lowering electrical resistivity signatures, boradly indicating the zones contamination and groundwater.
