This study assesses the impact of Abattoir effluent on the physico?chemical parameters of Landzu River.
Water samples were collected from four different sampling point; P1, P2, P3 and P4, it was collected at
both the upstream and downstream of the effluent point of discharge. The parameters tested were pH,
Dissolve Oxygen, Suspended Solids, Electrical Conductivity, Manganese, Chloride, Copper, Iron and
standard method of water and wastewater analysis were used and compared with WHO permissible limit.
The results shows that virtually all the sample were above the WHO standard which make the river water
to be unsafe to both Human and aquatic life. There is need to upgrade the present abattoir to reduce it
level of pollution.
