Abstract


Eighty eight (88) water samples were collected from twenty two (22) locations across four periods to highlight the micro-climatic conditions between January to September 2005 in three Formations intrusive, Asu River group and Eze-Aku. In this study, the relationship between various elements has been studied using correlation analysis, cluster analysis and factor analysis. The data also show that the aquifer in the study area are vulnerable to faecal coliform due to water from runoff that infiltrate into the aquifer from the vodose zone during precipitation in the area. This is evidence that the vulnerability of the study area is control by infiltration and runoff.
