This study assessed the water quality of the Ulasi river, by examining the physical, chemical and biological nature of water samples drawn from sections of the river (in Ihiala LGA of Anambra State, Nigeria) in relation to WHO quality standards for drinking water. The study enables definition of existing conditions, and provides a basis for trends detection as well as information for determining cause-and-effect relations with respect to, for example, point and non-point sources of pollutants, anthropogenic activities and waste disposal along the river.
