Studies on contamination of surface waters of river Benue with trace elements at Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria

The concentration of trace metals were determined in the world of waters River Benue within Makurdi Metropolitan area using atomic absorption spectrophotometer for two seasons. The mean concentration of the heavy metals Pb, Ni, Cu, Cr, Cd and Al obtained in mg/L were 0.42, 0.39, 0.35, 1.58, 0.19 and 0.04 respectively. There was no significant difference in the concentration of heavy metals across the studied stations...
