Abstract:

The temporal and spatial physico-chemical parameters of Kubanni dam, Galma dam and Shika Dam was carried out between October, 2016 to July, 2017 for the determination of twelve physico-chemical parameters on monthly basis following standard methods. The results indicates high significant difference (p<0.05) amongst most of parameters tested for the sampling locations except for Hardness, Biochemical Oxygen Demand and color. The conductivity of water samples from the three dams ranged 133.97±30.33 (A.B.U dam) to 148.80±22.64µS/cm (Shika dam) while pH ranged from 7.15±0.20 (Shika dam) to7.39±0.22 (Galma dam), Alkalinity ranged from 35.91±11.51mg/l (Galma dam) to 41.83 mg/l (A.B.U dam). Turbidity ranged from 20.18±26.17 (Shika dam) to 37.39±35.69) NTU (Galma), Total dissolved solid ranged from 63.40±9.01) mg/l (Galma dam), to 70.64±6.99 (Shika dam), Chemical oxygen demand ranged from 238.80±48.95mg/l Galma to 274.25±97.90mg/l A.B.U dam, dissolved oxygen ranges from 1.54±0.56mg/l, (Shika dam) to 1.81±0.42(Galma dam), Chloride ranged from 12.62±2.35(Galma dam) mg/l to 18.03±3.57(Shika dam), and Temperature ranged from 26.05±1.410C (Galma) to 26.33±1.18 (Shika dam). The parameters were within the World Health Organization and Nigerian Standard for Drinking Water Quality limits except for turbidity, COD and hardness. Generally the water samples from Shika dam were observed to be hard while Galma dam was found to be most turbid.
