PRECIPITATION AND ALTITUDE EFFECTS ON GROUNDWATER IRON AND MANGANESE DISTRIBUTION IN CHANDRAPUR DISTRICT, CENTRAL INDIA

Abstract To ascertain the precipitation and altitude effects on groundwater iron and manganese distribution in Chandrapur district, central India 36 groundwater sampling locations by stratified sampling methodology were identified. Water sampling was carried out by grab sampling methodology and heavy metals concentrations were analyzed by acid digestion method with the help of ICP-OES. The results […]

EVALUATION OF HYDRO-GEOCHEMISTRY OF LAGOS LAGOON BESIDE FESTIVAL (FESTAC) TOWN, LAGOS NIGERIA

Abstract Water quality deterioration in lagoons comes from excessive nutrient inputs, eutrophication, acidification, heavy metal contamination, organic pollution and obnoxious fishing practices. The water quality data obtained were analysed using a host of statistical tools such as descriptive statistics [mean, standard error of the mean, variance, standard deviation etc.]. The rotated component matrix helps one […]

CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON WATER AVAILABILITY IN UPPER BERNAM RIVER BASIN USING DOWNSCALED GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE MODEL DATA WITH SWAT MODEL

Abstract Many studies indicate that climate change impacts on water availability and extreme events will be on both global and local scales. The humid tropical basin of Upper Bernam River, Malaysia is taken as case study to evaluate the impact of climate change on water availability on local scale by using Downscaled Global Climate Change […]

IRON AND MANGANESE OCCURRENCE AND DISTRIBUTION IN GROUNDWATER SOURCE DEPTHS IN CHANDRAPUR DISTRICT, CENTRAL INDIA

Abstract To assess groundwater iron and manganese occurrence and distribution from the study area 36 sampling locations were identified from the Chandrapur district, central India. The grab sampling method was adopted for groundwater sampling. Heavy metals concentration for iron and manganese were estimated by ICP-OES. Groundwater sources are divided into six levels and heavy metals […]

SEASONAL VARIATION IN PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF DRINKING WATER QUALITY AROUND SLUM SETTLEMENTS IN LAGOS METROPOLIS, NIGERIA

Abstract This study examined the effect of seasonal variation on the physio-chemical and microbial properties of drinking water around slum settlement within Lagos Metropolis. Water samples were collected from different boreholes at different slums around the settlement comprising Group A (Majidun), Group B (Oworoshoki), Group C (Bariga), Group D (Iwaya) and Group E (Ijora Badia) […]

WATER QUALITY ASSESSMENT AND POLLUTION STUDIES OF RIVER ROMI KADUNA, NIGERIA

Abstract The World Health Organization emphasized that an assessment of the adequacy of the chemical quality of drinking-water relies on comparison of the results of water quality analysis with guideline values. During the early development of the standards, the importance of feacal contamination of water was recognized and the role of filtration and later, disinfection […]

HEADWATER STREAMS AND VALUES OF BIO-ASSESSMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE RIVER MANAGEMENT IN HIGHLANDS OF ETHIOPIA

Abstract Headwater streams are important component of riverine ecosystem comprising the majority of the catchment area. These streams are densely networked in the highlands of Ethiopian river basins. Organic and inorganic materials and invertebrates are transported from the headwater streams and they have potential effect on downstream river habitat, water quality and living organisms. In […]

PHYSICOCHEMICAL AND MICROBIAL EVALUATIONS OF DIFFERENT FISH PONDS’ WASTEWATERS AND THE ANTIBIOTICS PROFILES OF ISOLATED BACTERIA

Abstract Aquaculture is a global practice that entails the breeding of different fish species. It is incessant in the Nigerian community as wastewater released from pond farms into surrounding drainages and water bodies cause pollution. In this study, a comparative analysis of the physico-chemical parameters (temperature, pH, salinity, conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen (DO) and Biological Oxygen […]

ASSESSMENT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS AND THEIR IMPACT ON THE SURFACE WATER QUALITY OF AWASH RIVER, ETHIOPIA

Abstract The Awash River, (AR) is used for different purposes such as drinking, industrial supply, hydropower, and agriculture. These uses of the water have resulted in the rapid deterioration of water quality. The performance of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) situated with the river catchment area have been assessed together with the impact on the surface […]
