Title: W ATER QUALITY PARAMETERS OF TAGW AI DAM MINNA. NIGER STATE
Authors: MUSA, GEORGE
Issue Date: 3-Jun-2013
Abstract: The physico- chemical parameters of water quality of Tagwai dam were analyzed weekly within the period of three months (8 weeks) starting for 21 st October, 9th December, 2009. in all, five (5) stations were identified within the d.w. The results obtained from the study show variation in the values on weeks and stations as regards to the parameters such as Temperatures, Dissolved Oxygen, Biological Oxygen Demands(BOD) Transparency, Conductivity, pH, Alkalinity, Hardness, Phosphate, Nitrate and Ammonia. Although some physico- chemical parameters show significant difference on the weeks and stations but Temperature, pH and Nitrate show no significant variation on stations and phosphate and Nitrate value show that can not support primary productivity of that dam and human activities are highly concentrated and which will be detrimental to aquatic orgaflism and the use of such water for domestic purposes will have direct impact on the water quality. The refer physico- chemical parameters analyzed indicated that most or them fall within the permissible limit standard set by WHO (1987) (FMENV, 2000)
