Groundwater is a great source of living things. The result of groundwater can be used by humans to serve as a beverage and not to forget also greatly benefits other creatures such as plants and animals. Some natural waters which, according to speciation calculations, seem to be in or near equilibrium with a given mineral phase may actually be significantly dissolved / precipitated as a result of other irreversible reactions (Glynn & Plummer, 2005). In this study, the potential of the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) as a non-destructive method to correctly and efficiently detect the groundwater has been examined. GPR has proven to be the most effective and acceptable technological solution for evaluating groundwater efficiently. The aim of this study is to explore, collect data, analyse, calculate and produce underground water column using Ground Penetrating Radar. To achieve the aim, the objectives of this study are to: 1) to detect the underground water column using Ground Penetrating Radar, 2) to analyse the underground water column data and 3) to produce the underground water column image. The study is carried out at Naka, 06400 Pokok Sena, Kedah. There are four (4) phase of methodology which is phase 1: preliminary study, phase 2: data acquisition, phase 3: data processing and phase 4: result and analysis. All the phase need to be conduct because of to produce the last result which is underground water column image.
