The study includes the application of photogeologic, geophysical and auger test-drilling methods in the flood plain of the Alabama River to locate and define deposits that would be good shallow aquifers having definite potential for hydraulic connection to the river. Aerial photographs were studies to assist in locating abandoned river channels and other areas in which shallow aquifers might exist. Prospective areas were then delineated, and geophysical studies and an auger test drilling program were implemented. Refraction seismic and electrical resistivity methods were used to attempt to locate sand and/or gravel deposits. Electrical resistivity became the primary geophysical method used when experience indicated that sand and gravel deposits were more resistive than the associated clay and silt deposits.
