Abstract

Wastewater characteristics provide basic information for their possible reuse for agricultural production as irrigation water and for fish culture. Pre-treated wastewater effluents from five industrial establishments were investigated to determine their potential of being used for irrigation and aquaculture. The physico – chemical analysis of the effluents indicates that most conform to recommended FAO (1992) and FEPA (1991) indicating potentials of being utilized for agricultural purpose. Exception occur in the total dissolved solids (TDS) and Nitrate (NO3-) contents which is found to be very high in most of the effluents sampled. pH analysis shows that effluent from food and beverage industries tend to be very acidic. The data so obtained in this study shows that the utilization of the pre-treated effluent from these industries for agricultural purpose could be encouraged with minor modification by further treatment
