The karst area in Panggang Subsystem, Gunungsewu has specific hydrogeological properties, including predominant epikarst springs with minimal discharge in dry seasons. Since this situation inevitably leads to drought, the installation of deep wells to extract water from deep aquifers is proposed as an alternative solution to water provision. This study determined the location of these wells using general geological and geomorphological surveys, followed by analyzing the results of geophysical measurements. The results showed potential aquifers in the sand layer of tertiary volcanic aquifers under the limestone formation that makes the karst region. Although three borewells were constructed at three different points, only two of them succeeded and are ready for use to meet the clean water needs of the population at the research site.
Key words: Panggang Subsystem / Deep Groundwater Wells / Alternative Water Resources
