Physico-Chemical Studies of Yantinka Wastewater in Jos North Local Government Area, Plateau State
      Henry, M. U.
Abstract: Wastewater before and after the spot of discharge of effluents at Yantinka was analysed for the physico-chemical parameters like temperature, pH, specific conductivity, total hardness, magnesium hardness, chloride, sulphate and some heavy metals like Mn, Fe, Zn, Cu, Cd, Cr, Ni, Pb using standard method of analysis. Result of the analysis showed temperature range of 21.00°C,-23.50°C, pH range of 7.80-8.18, and conductivity range of 205-610µs/cm with the highest after the spot of discharge, total hardness range of 252 - 260 mg/l, CaCO3, TDS range of 64-135mg/dm3. Wastewater before the spot of discharge had concentrations of 6.432 ppm for Fe which exceeded the WHO permissible limit. Mn, Cd, Ni and Pb were not detected in the wastewater. Water after the spot of discharge had concentrations of 295mg/l for chloride and 20.40ppm for Fe which exceeded the permissible limit of WHO. The waste water after the spot of discharge had higher concentrations of the parameters analyzed.
