Abstract: A hydrogeological study of Afikpo-North L.G.A, south-eastern Nigeria was carried out to determine the aquifer thickness and transmisisivity values of the area. A total of twenty (20) Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) and pumping tests respectively were conducted to determine these aquifer parameters. The area is underlain by Ezeaku and Nkporo formations. Aquifer thickness and transmissivity values range from 11.6m to 36.1m and 0.05m2/day to 16.59m2/day respectively. From the results obtained generally, aquifer thickness and transmissivity values were observed to be low. Regional maps of the various hydrogeological parameters have been produced and transmissivity values obtained were compared with Krásný transmissivity classifications and the results delineated the area into four potential groundwater zones; imperceptible, very low, low and intermediate zones for future exploration, development and choosing for drilling sites.
