To determine the aquifer parameters of the study area 5 pumping tests well in alluvial area and 8 pumping tests well in hard rock area (Basalt) have been conducted in the past on exploratory wells. Based on these tests, it was observed that in Alluvium the transmissivity ranges from 0.89 to 1575.96 m2/day and the storativity ranges from 1.09 x 10-3 to 3.00 x 10-6. The transmissivity in basalt ranges from 8.35 to 395.85 m2/day and the storativity varies between 8 x 10 -8 and 4.2 x 10 to 2.
