A study of water quality condition of Digil Dam Mubi
North-eastern Nigeria was carried out for the period of July
to September 2008. Five sampling sites were selected for the
research. The stations included the inlet site towards the
eucalyptus trees; station (A), the entrance gate; station
(B), opposite to the second station; station (C), the spill
way channel; station (D), the middle of the Dam; station
(E). Data were collected in triplicate for temperature, pH,
conductivity, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids,
alkalinity, salinity, and phosphate concentration using
standard methods. The result showed variations in the
monthly and station to station values of all the water
quality parameters tested. Despite this variation the values
were tolerable range of the majority of tropical fresh water
pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, alkalinity, salinity.
