ABSTRACT:
In order to address some of the pollution problems affecting the aquatic water bodies four sediments streams were analysed in Ibadan for effluents discharge impact. The levels of the levy metal contamination which indicate the actual level of the stream pollution were studies using Atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The result shows that concentration trace metals as Osun stream sediments. Cd (0.1 – 5.1)ppm Fe (1001.2 – 166643) ppm, (11.0 – 65.2) ppm Zn (90.3 – 699.1) ppm Pb (6.2 – 80.0)ppm, Cu (8.3 – 221) ppm Ni (5.3 – 30.0) ppm Ona stream sediments Cd (0.2 – 2.0) ppm Fe (4163.0 – 11423.0)ppm Cr (6.0 – 43.4)ppm Zn (5.0 – 132.3) ppm Pb (3.4 – 88.0) ppm, Cu (1.4 – 17.4) ppm Ni (3.0 – 29.0) ppm Oniyere stream sediment Cd (0.3 – 5.1) ppm, Fe (6503 – 166643) ppm Cr (11.0 – 29.0) zn (90.3 – 699.1) ppm Pb (6.2 – 12360) ppm Cu (8.3 – 109.1) ppm Ni (5.3 – 30.0)ppm Eleyere stream sediment Cd (0.3 – 0.17) ppm, Fe (1127 – 94893) ppm, Cr (14.4 – 82.0) ppm, Zn (11.0 – 440.0) ppm, Pb (11.0 – 73.0) ppm Cu (11.0 – 31.0) ppm, Ni (6.0 – 15.0) ppm. In all the areas sample iron has the highest amount of deposit in the sediment which is far above the World Health Organisation (WHO).
