    Study was conducted on the physico-chemical water properties of Zobe reservor Dutsinma, Katsina State Nigeria. Water samples were collected from four different sample stations i.e., Makera, Badole, Garhi and Bagaggadi respectively, for the period of one year (May 2015 to April 2016). Samples for Conductivity, pH, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Temperature, Alkalinity, Turbidity, Hardness, Chloride, and Nitrate were collected during the morning hours, between 7:00 am to 9:00 am. The result showed variations in the monthly mean values of all the water quality parameters tested. The water is too turbid most especially during the beginning of raining season, despite this variation some of the values were within the tolerable range of the majority of tropical fresh water fish species. But the water cannot be used for domestic use unless it undergoes intensive treatment. .. Read More»
