Assessment Of Groundwater Quality And Its Suitability For Domestic And Agricultural Purposes In The North-Western Part Of The Central Region, Ghana.

ABSTRACT Groundwater samples collected from 40 institutions and public boreholes within the Twifo Hemang Lower Denkyira (T), Assin North (AN) and Assin South (AS) districts of the Central Region of Ghana were assessed to determine their suitability for domestic and agricultural purposes, based primarily on recommended permissible limits for parameters stated by World Health Organisation. The area covers an area of about 4,199 km2 . The quality assessment was made through the estimation...

Hydro-Geochemical Studies Of Groundwater In The Southwestern Coastal Districts Of The Central Region, Ghana.

ABSTRACT The hydrogeochemical data of groundwater of southwestern coastal Districts of the Central Region of Ghana were examined to determine the main factors controlling the groundwater chemistry and study the resultant water type formed in order to determine the suitability of the water for different uses. Different geochemical interpretation methods were used to identify the geochemical characteristics. The pH values of groundwater samples showed that 36 samples had pH values b...

Hydrogeochemical Analysis Of Groundwater In The Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District Of The Northern Region Of Ghana

ABSTRACT The climate of the Sawla Tuna Kalba District is the tropical continental type where only one rainy season in a year, occurs between early May and late October this makes surface water resources insufficient in the area. Groundwater is the main water supply in this region the utilization of groundwater for various purposes is common. In this part of northern Ghana, groundwater serves as a major source of freshwater for domestic and agricultural purposes. This study investigated ...
