Determination of Water Quality Index of Some Selected Water Bodies in High Level Town in Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria.

This study was carried out to determine water quality index of some selected water bodies in High – Level of Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria. Pipe borne, Borehole water and Well water samples were collected from High – Level and analyzed for Hydrogen Ion Concentration (pH) Total Alkalinity, (TA) Chloride (Cl), Electrical conductivity (EC), Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen(DO), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Sulphate, Nitrate, Total Dissolved Solid (TDS), Total Suspended Solid(TSS), Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg) using standard techniques.in this study, water quality index was determined on the basis of various physicochemical parameters mentioned above. The results obtained for the Water Quality Index(WQI) from the distribution outlets of pipe borne, borehole and well waters in High Level, Makurdi were found to varies from 33.90 to 60.16 indicating that pipe borne water analyzed is safe for human consumption and other purposes while borehole and well waters are not safe based on Water Quality Index Standard.
