Description

Groundwater is important natural resources and vital for many people. In area of Patiw district, Chumphon province has a lot of palm forests. Local people use groundwater for grow their plant. The sedimentary rock in study area consists of mostly mud-gravel sediment rock, siltstone in the west and mostly hill is limestone. The aim of this project is to find and locate the location of groundwater in Patiw district, Chumphon province by geophysical survey methods. The method use to find and locate groundwater is Electrical survey method. Vertical electrical sounding (VES) surveys were carried out at three locations using Schlumberger array and Imaging electrical surveys (2-D Survey) were carried out at four locations. The field data has been primarily interpreted using inversion. Geophysical model have been prepared based on resistivity profile, geology data and well data. The result shows that there are two groundwater areas, the first area is locate on 160-320 m on Line 1(2-D) with depth 60-120 m and the second area is locate on 700-1000 m on Line 1(2-D) with depth 50-120 m. The groundwater is water from limestone aquifer. There are two possible drilling locations, the first position is locate on 240 m on Line 1(2-D) with depth 90 m and the second position is locate on 900 m on Line 1(2-D) with depth 120 m.
