Seasonal Assessment of Underground Water Quality

  title={Seasonal Assessment of Underground Water Quality},
  author={Bitrus Wokhe Tukura and Taofeek Abdulrafiu},
Levels of physiochemical parameters and heavy metals in water collected in dry and wet seasons from some boreholes in Wamba Area of Nasarawa state, Nigeria were assessed. Physicochemical parameters were determined using standard methods. Metal concentrations were quantified using atomic absorption spectrometer (AAS). Physicochemical quality index (WQI) and metal pollution index (HQI) were also determined. Water pH was slightly alkaline for both seasons.Highest levels of total solids (405.33±1.0…
