The physico-chemical properties of underground waters in Abia State, Nigeria were determined with a view to ascertaining the effect of population density and level of industrialization on the water quality parameters using Aba (a relatively industrialized city) and Umuahia (a city with very few industries) as a case study. Underground waters of Aba had mean pH value of 4.43 ± 0.13 which was significantly lower (P < 0.05) than a mean value of 5.17 ± 0.09 obtained for Umuahia. Underground waters… CONTINUE READING
