Abstract

Detailed study of the physical and chemical quality analyses of several groundwater samples was carried out in an attempt to assess the potability of groundwater in Igwuruta area. A total of 15 number of boreholes were involved in the water sampling for quality analysis. The waters did not have objectionable colour, odour or taste and were not turbid. The pH values ranges from 4.27-5.30,this shows acidic and aggressive groundwater in the area. The dominant cations include Ca2+ with mean values of 18.65.The carbonate, Nitrate and Sulphate dominate the anion. CO3-, NO3-. SO42-.have mean values of 13.31, 1.40, 2.16mg/l respectively.The groundwater in the area is generally soft, and free from saltwater intrusion, with low iron constituents. Therefore, the groundwater of the area is generally of acceptable quality for household, industrial and agricultural purpose
