Hydrochemical Assessment Of Surface Water In Part Of Southeastern Nigeria

ABSTRACTThe area of study occurs mainly within the Calabar Flank and part of the adjacent basement terrain of the Oban Massif. The latter is composed of mainly migmatitic gneisses, phyllites, amphibolites, granites, schists and granodiorites, while the major lithologies of the Calabar Flank include carbonates, shales, claystones and sandstones. This study aims at determining the quality and usability of the water, in addition to ascertaining the possible pollutants and ways to ameliorate thei...

Hydrogeological Characteristics Of Aquifers In The Greater Accra Region

The economic importance of groundwater in the Greater Accra Region cannot be overemphasized, since supply from boreholes and wells continues to be the most dependable alternative sources of water for most rural and urban communities in the region. Three different consolidated hard rocks underlie the region making it difficult to produce volumes of groundwater for supplies. Demand for portable water has led to the drilling of large numbers of boreholes. This study stat...
