Water resources utilization in Yenagoa, Central Niger Delta: Environmental and health implications

  This study examined the groundwater in relation to the surface water quality analysis in Yenagoa Local Government Area (LGA), Bayelsa State, Central Niger Delta. Groundwater samples were collected from the boreholes in the randomly selected communities namely Igbogene, Akenfa, Edepie, Swali, Biogbolo and Amarata and surface water samples from a point in Epie Creek that flows through the selected...

Study on the effects of vegetation density in reducing bed shear stress on the downstream slope of earthen embankment

  River bank, coastal erosion and embankment failures are endemic and recurrent natural hazards, causing loss of lands and livelihoods along major rivers and coastlines. Overflow is the most damaging factor for earthen embankments on the downstream (d/s) slope due to the erosion of surface material which is caused by the high bed shear stress and supercritical flow over the entire d/s slope. Vegetation planted...

Assessment of pollution levels of groundwater in parts of Imo River Basin, South Eastern Nigeria

  Twenty five samples of groundwater were obtained from various boreholes in the study area and subjected to physico-chemical analysis using standard laboratory techniques. The study was aimed at the assessment of the pollution status of the groundwater supply in parts of Imo River Basin and its environs using some pollution indications namely: electrical conductivity, phosphate (PO4), total dissolved solids...

Geo-spatial technology based study on climate change impact and stewardship for rural India: A pragmatic approach for comprehensive groundwater resource mapping and management

  Climate change may influence hydrogeological processes and groundwater resources directly and indirectly in various modes. Therefore, a systematic planning, management and adaption are challenging task. Considering the importance of climate change impact, the study was to identify the sustainable Groundwater (GW) / Drinking Water (DW) resources potential zones, suitable locations for GW harvesting structures,...

Housing typology in the forecast of demand for drinking water in developing country towns and cities: Application to Yaoundé - Cameroon

  The lack of mastery of housing problems in developing countries causes difficulties in the forecasting of the demand for potable water, which in turn causes waste and high cost of water. We modeled the forecasting of the demand for potable water in a city, taking into account the housing typology. The latter depends on parameters such as: household income, size of households, price of water, annual rainfall...
