Assessment of Heavy metal concentration in storm runoff generated at Alabata mechanic village, Camp, Abeokuta, Ogun state, Nigeria.

Water is a vital source of life essential for survival of all living organisms. Surface runoff and soil may become contaminated by the accumulation of heavy metals deposited by the activities of auto mechanic village. Runoff samples were obtained during rainfall from Alabata Mechanic Village located at Camp, Abeokuta, Ogun state; during the establishment of peak rainfall (May and June) and cessation of rainfall (November and February). This study examined runoff samples to quantify the concen...

Parasite Diversity and Health of Oreochromis Mossambicus and Labeo Rosae From Loskop Dam, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa

Land-use activities occurring in the upper catchment of the Olifants River System affect the water quality of Loskop Dam. Such activities lead to water pollution and that affect the health of fish and other aquatic organisms. The aim of the study was to determine the health status of Loskop Dam by assessing the health and parasites of Oreochromis mossambicus and Labeo rosae as biological indicators. The selected fish species were examined during summer (March) and winter (June) 2018. The...

ECOGENOTOXICOGICAL ASSESSMENTS OF SOME SELECTED FISH SPECIES FROM APODU RESERVOIR, MALETE, NORTH CENTRAL, NIGERIA

Increased agricultural and domestic activities around and within aquatic ecosystem could poseserious threats to the habitat quality and ichthyofauna diversity. Nigeria is a country notablefor the alarming rate of water pollution. On the other hand, increased human populace aroundthe Apodu Reservoir has led to an intensifying rate of pollutants’ influx into the water body.To date, there is limited information on the habitat quality and associated genotoxic effectsof pollutants on physiology...

Hydrochemical Evolution of Ground and Surface Water within the Amansie and Adansi Districts

Source–rock deductions of major ions and saturation states of minerals in groundwater were employed to determine the origin of dissolved ions and the thermodynamic controls on the groundwater composition respectively in groundwater within the Amansie and Adansi Districts. The main objective of this study is to characterize groundwater and delineate soil-water-rock interactions responsible for the chemical evolution of groundwater within the districts. Fifty-nine boreholes, twelve wells and ...

A comparative study of the pollution status of Sakumo II and Muni Lagoons in Ghana

The pollution status of Sakumo II and Muni Lagoons and Mamahuma and Gbagbla Ankonufeeder streams, which feed Sakumo II along the coast of Ghana, were assessed and compared.As expected of saline waters, pH values of both lagoons fell within a slightly neutral to salinerange whilst, the feeder streams were moderately saline. Conductivity distribution also showedsaline (.5.0mScm21) characteristics of the lagoons, while, the feeder streams are brackish(1.5–5.0mScm21). DO concentrations in both ...
