Effect of anthropogenic activities on the water quality parameters of federal university of agriculture Abeokuta reservoir


Author(s): Adeosun FI, Adams TF, Amrevuawho MO

Abstract: The study aimed to investigate the impacts of land use types on surface water quality and to determine the various anthropogenic activities of the surface water flowing into the reservoir. Four sampling stations were selected around the study location and water samples collected biweekly from February to June 2013. The result showed that the water quality parameter varied during the study with temperature ranged between 26.88-31.440C, pH (6.82-7.98), alkalinity (6.66-14.5mg/l) and dissolved oxygen (DO) (3.94-6.82mg/l). Highest DO was observed at the reservoir. No significant difference (p<0.05) was observed in the values of alkalinity among the water bodies. Temperature was statistically similar (p>0.05) at three of the stations but significantly different (p<0.05) at the reservoir. The study concluded that water quality of the reservoir was adversely affected by human activities such as domestic runoff, agricultural runoff, and refuse dump as well as seasonality in the streams flowing into the FUNAAB reservoir.
