Studies on the physico-chemical parameters of Omi water body of Ago-Iwoye, Nigeria


Fafioye, O. O.*, Olurin, K. B., and Sowunmi, A. A.

In Omi water body, the physico-chemical parameters such as dissolved oxygen ranged from 1.4 to 4.8 mg/L; pH, 6.7 to 7.2; temperature, 26.5 to 31.5°C; alkalinity, 24.2 to 25.4 ppm; conductivity, 23.0 to 28.3 Ohms/cm; turbidity 0.11 to 0.15 m; and free carbon dioxide from 3.5 to 4.5 mg/L. Dissolved oxygen, pH and water temperature serve as variables since the fluctuation of one affects the values of others. The investigation shows that Omi water is safe for drinking when purified.
