Authors: SAMUEL, PELEG DUZA

Abstract: The physico-chemical parameters of Bosso Dam were analyzed weekly for a period of six (6) weeks from 29th October to 3rd December 2009. In all, six (6) stations were identified within the dam.The physico-chemical parameters assessed were: temperature, dissolved oxygen, ,pH, alkalinity, hardness, conductivity and transparency. Results for ~,~ some of the parameters such as temperature and transparency were recorded on the field, while others were taken to the laboratory for experiment. For dissolved oxygen, reagent 1 and reagent 2 were fixed on the field before samples were taken to the laboratory for further experiment. The results obtained from the analysis revealed slight variations in most parameters. There was no significant difference p>0.05 in pH regardless of stations and weeks. But significant difference p<0.05 were observed in dissolved oxygen, nitrate, temperature, conductivity, hardness, alkalinity, biological oxygen demand, transparency, in regards to stations. These variation could be due to influx of organic waste from surface run offs and inorganic waste deposited by man. The physico-chemical parameters 4' observed, indicated that most of them fall with the recommended range or standard by the Federal Ministry of Environment (FMENV, 2000)
