B. B, Yusif | A. Anteyi | K. A, Bichi | A. B, Mu’azu | M. Chutiyami "Determination of Physicochemical Parameters and Heavy Metal Levels in Some Well Water of Gwaram Town Jigawa, Northwest Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-2, February 2018, pp.678-682, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd9503.pdf

The study was aimed at determining physicochemical parameters of water including temperature, pH, electrical conductivity (EC) and total dissolved solid (TDS)as well as heavy metals (Cu, Cr, Fe, Mn, Pb, and Zn)collected from well waters in Gwaram town, Jigawa state of Nigeria. Eight different wards (Auyakawa, Bare-Bari, Fada, Gagaryaga, Kawari, Kuka, Kurna and Wurya) were selected and their water samples were collected based on their closeness to pollution sources. Analysis of the physicochemical parameters were determined using universal handheld pH meter and TDS meter, while heavy metals were determined by atomic absorption spectrometry. The results showed that the pH of all the samples were within the WHO limit. On the other hand, the TDS for all the samples are above the WHO upper limit and the EC of Bare-bari, Fada, Kuka and Kurna are below the WHO upper limit. Gagaryaga has the same as WHO upper limit while Auyakawa, Kawari and Wurya have above the WHO upper limit. Heavy metals in the samples are within the permissible limits when compared with WHO upper limit except Cuand Fe that are higher in Auyakawa, Kawari and Wurya. It was thus concluded that the major source of drinking water in Gwaram has the potential to cause a number of preventable public health problems. It is hence recommended that the state government (Jigawa) as well as public health non-governmental organizations should put more effort towards providing a portable drinking water to neglected areas like Gwaram.
