An aquifer to be able to transmit water in a high level is base on the permeability and hydraulic conductivity of the rock, in Rivers State geological formation, the permeability of the rocks are very high which allow for easy transmission of water at a very high volumes, because the formation is very porous, therefore this storage coefficient are very high and these conditions allowed the possibility of transmitting and storing of large volume of water at the aquiferous zone, therefore the ability of an aquifer to transmit volume of groundwater are calculated by multiplying the hydraulic conductivity by the aquifer thickness.
