Abstract: ABSTRACT: The presence of chemicals in surface water and drinking water is an important factor in determining the risk posed by landfills sites. This study assessed the concentrations of physio-chemical, bacteriological parameters and heavy metals in surface water quality from the dumpsite at Ugwuaji, Enugu South Local Government Area in Enugu state. Specifically, the study assessed the concentrations of physical parameters, chemical parameters, bacteriological parameters, and heavy metals in the surface water at the dumpsite and compared their level of compliance with WHO and NSDWQ standards. The study used eight (8) surface water samples collected at varying distances: 0m, 10m, 20m, 30m, 40m, 50m, and 60m respectively away from the dumpsite, and one control sample collected at 15m upstream from the dumpsite. Nine (9) physical parameters including temperature, turbidity, taste, colour, odour, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, and total solids; eleven (11) chemical parameters: pH, acidity, alkalinity, calcium hardness, magnesium hardness, total hardness, chloride, nitrate, phosphate, sulphate and dissolved oxygen; ten (10) heavy metals: Mn, Zn, Cu, Mg, Pb, Fe, Cr, As, Cd and Al; and three (3) bacteriological parameters: E. Coli, total coliform and total plate count e35i after 24hours. Statistical tools employed in the data analyses were descriptive statistics: mean and standard deviations, and inferential student’s t-test. The data analysis was aided by Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 25.0. All examined parameters in each sample in relation to distance from the landfill and varying levels of concentration were presented in graphical format. Result shows that many constituents in the water exceeded the control limit thereby making the water not drinkable by the people within the vicinity. Based on these findings, the study suggested that the water should be treated properly before consumption. Also, since there are high concentrations of heavy metals in the water samples, it was recommended that human consumption of the water is very dangerous to human health.
