Abstract
Water quality parameters of two major rivers (River Benue and River Niger) were investigated for two seasons (rainy and dry seasons) using standard methods. The ranges of results in both rivers for the rainy season are as follows: turbidity, 12 - 90NTU; electrical conductivity, 48.4 - 74.0μS/cm; DO, 5.2 - 6.0mg/L; BOD, 59 - 70mg/L; COD, 122 - 144mg/L; alkalinity, 0.8 - 3.8mg/L; pH, 7.2 - 7.7; chloride, 3.5 - 5.8mg/L; phosphate, 4. - 10.4mg/L; total hardness, 40 - 80mg/L; TDS, 19 - 35mg/L; TSS, 130 - 220mg/L. The ranges of results in the two rivers for the dry season are as follows: turbidity, 7 - 59NTU; electrical conductivity, 63.8 - 74.2 μS /cm; DO, 4.9 - 5.8mg/L; BOD, 48 - 66mg/L; COD, 102 - 134mg/L; alkalinity, 1.0 - 1.8mg/L; pH, 7.2 - 7.6; chloride, 2.29 - 5.14mg/L; phosphate, 0.96 - 1.36mg/L; total hardness, 80 - 120mg/L; TDS, 28.4 - 42.8mg/L; TSS, 80 - 160mg/L. The results showed that most of the parameters are within the permissible limits specified by National Guideline and standards for Water Quality while COD, BOD and phosphate, alkalinity and TSS fall outside the specified permissible limits.
