ABSTRACT

This study assessed water quality of MDG's boreholes in Kuje Area Council Abuja with a view to determine its suitability for human consumption, to achieve this, the study embarked on (i) identification of MDGs Boreholes, (ii)physic-biological characteristics and heavy metal concentration of water samples, determination of the quality of the boreholes water samples, (iii) comparison of result obtained in (2) above with WHO Drinking Water Standard, in the study area and value obtained , were compared with who 2011 drinking water guidelines, GPS was employed for reference purpose, Ten, borehole were sampled and analyzed in laborat01y using standard method or guidelines procedures suggested by American Public Health Association APHA (1995); Result obtained were computed using statistical analysis of mean, STDE, range, variables and %cv; values were compared with WHO 2011 drinking water guidelines; Result reveal that Pb, Zn, Fe, are the contaminants of borehole water in the study area and this can be accounted to geological formation and pathogenic activities, which has health implication that include hypertension, heart and kidney diseases, lungs, PH and alkalinity were also high in some sampled boreholes, while Temp, Ee, Thb, Turbidity, Tds, N0 3, Cl, Na, Tc, Fe, Th are free for drinking Borehole water in the study area.

Further and trial laboratory test can be conducted in the study area at wet and d1y season; geophysics survey report is required in any subsequence drilling, water treatment is required before human consumption in the study area.
