A field study on the Ground Water Quality Assessment of Abandoned Quarry Ponds near Lower Benue Trough, Nigeria, was conducted to determine how past quarrying activities affected the ponds. From four abandoned quarry ponds measuring fifty metres (50 m) (165 ft) deep, water samples were obtained. In-situ measurements to determine pH , temperature, total dissolved solids, turbidity , conductivity, and salinity were performed with the HORIBA U-10 Water Quality Checker. Data analysis was conducted using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation (r) … Continue reading “Critical Assessment of Groundwater Quality around Abandoned Quarry Ponds near Lower Benue Trough, Nigeria”
