Detailed study of the physical and chemical quality analyses of several groundwater samples was carried out in an attempt to assess the potability of groundwater in Arochukwu area. A total of 10 numbers of boreholes were involved in the water sampling for quality analysis. The waters did not have objectionable colour, odour or taste and were not turbid. The pH have mean values of 6.72, this shows acidic and aggressive groundwater in the area. The dominant cations include Ca 2+ with mean values… CONTINUE READING
