  • The use of rivers for various purposes has resulted in their deterioration. Water quality involves integrating chemical and biological monitoring methods to evaluate the negative potential human health impact. Water samples from river Pompom in the vicinity of the Nigerian iron ore deposit at Itakpe, Nigeria, were analyzed for pH, turbidity, odour, conductivity, total suspended matter, total dissolved solid, biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn to determine… CONTINUE READING
