A geoelectrical study of the Hamdania area, east of Mosul city, indicates presence of four geoelectrical zones represent different geological formations.
Correlation of VES data with boreholes information indicate that Injana Formation and the overlying beds, up to the topsoil surface layer, represent the main aquifer in the area. It is an unconfined aquifer and the movement of water is from north and north east to south and southwest towards Tigris river, following the topography.
