Abstract: Water is very important for life, it is a useful resource for domestic, industrial and agricultural purposes. Water samples were taken for analysis from Ikogosi warm spring. Cold water (S1), warm water (S2), mixture of warm and cold water (S3) at a definite distance, distilled water (S4) and Gossy water (S5) samples were obtained. All the water samples were tasteless and odorless and they are clear in appearance. Sample 1, 2, 3 and 4 had the temperatures of 370C, 260C, 300C, 250C respectively. S1 value was highest in temperature due to the direct flow of water from the rock, but for the sample 5, Gossy bottled water was already refined to the ambient temperature of 250C. The concentrations of alkalinity, total hardness, sulphate (SO42-), nitrate (NO3-), chloride (Cl-) were all below WHO guidelines value. The turbidity of all the samples is within the tolerable range set by WHO. The results of some of these parameters are however below the quality standard specification for ground water meant to be used for consumption.
