Geohydrological Investigation at Pullampet, Cuddapah District, Andhra Pradesh, India

S. Siddiraju

Abstract


The area of investigation located at Pullampet mandal, Cuddapah district, Andhra Pradesh, India. Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) were carried out at 30 locations using schlumberger configuration for the investigation of ground water resources in the drought prone area. The data were interpreted by partial curve matching and more sophisticated techniques based on inversion schemes. The curves are prominently at A, K&H type. Interpretations reveal the number of sub-surface layers, their thickness and their water bearing capacity within the study area. This will greatly help to understand the sub-surface geology and in identifying bore wells and digging of wells in negative areas will be avoided.
