Seasonal variation of elemental, physicochemical and microbiological characteristics of the stream water around hospital waste dumpsite in Ilesa, South-western Nigeria

This study assessed the seasonal variation of microbiological, physicochemical and heavy metal analysis of water samples from Ayao Stream around a hospital waste dumpsite. Four samples were collected downstream and analyzed for microbial count, coliforms, pH, electrical conductivity, BOD5, alkalinity, total dissolved solids, water hardness, sulphate, nitrate, chloride and phosphate using standard method. Heavy metals...
