The immediate need of water is very vital to every organism therefore its availability and provision becomes very essential to life. As a result this study focused on the provision of quality ground water for sustainability of staff and students of Auchi polytechnic and its environs. It carried out conduction of resistivity sounding at the site and interpretation of the field Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES) data to obtain geo-electric parameters. Determination of the hydrogeological characteristics of the subsurface at the site based on geo-electric and available geologic information reveal the possible of water availability. It recommended that a suitable drilling rig that can effectively drill to the required specifications and depth should be mobilized to site for subsequent projects.
