Abstract: The area of study covered Orlu and adjoining areas in the Southeastern Nigeria and bounded by latitudes 50 30´ N - 60 00´ N and longitudes 60 45´ E -70 15´ E. The aim of the study bordered majorly on groundwater accessibility in the area using remote sensing technique. The data generated were processed digitally using GIS softwares. The result shows that the lineament density is high around Opor, Osu, Orlu, Ihiala, Ekwulu and Uli which implies high groundwater potentials. This is because groundwater occurs within joints and fractures in rocks. It was also observed that the drainage in the area of study is structurally controlled and mostly influence both the groundwater and surface water flow directions. The major structural trends in the area are in the NE-SW and NNE-SSW directions.
