Abstract: Freshwater availability is being threatened in arid and semi arid areas. As a result of this and the over exploitation of surface freshwater sources, groundwater resources are increasingly receiving more attention as an alternative source of water. This investigation aims to identify preferential flow paths in fractured rock environments. Time-lapse Electrical Resistivity Tomography (TLERT, Lund Imaging System), is regarded as a suitable method for identifying preferential water flow.
