The quality and quantity of groundwater in the Batulicin area decreased since they had a high growth population.  The effort to get good groundwater is to predict the aquifer layers in the study area with their carrying depth and lithology. The geoelectricity method using pole-pole configuration was performed to get the resistivity model of fluids and lithology to obtain an overview of the subsurface sections. Aquifers layer was predicted using 2 section model resistivity along 1200 meter intersect each other—the lithology of the aquifer in the research area dominated by quartz sandstone with minor limestone. The aquifer is predicted in 125-175 meters of depth with 10-30 Ohm.m resistivity value. This result could be technical references for good drilling to get good quality and quantity water for the public.
