IMPACTS OF INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER DISCHARGE ON THE WATER QUALITY OF STREAMS IN THE URBAN REGION OF PORTHARCUT, RIVER STATE, NIGERIA

Abstract

This research project explores the Impacts of industrial wastewater discharge on the water quality of streams in the urban region of Portharcut, River State, Nigeria. It examines the contamination levels, ecological impacts, and potential health risks associated with the discharge of industrial wastewater into local streams. The study employs a combination of empirical data analysis and theoretical frameworks, including the Expectation Disconfirmation Theory, to understand the perceptions and experiences of affected communities. Data collection methods encompass surveys and measurements of water quality parameters, and the research aims to provide valuable insights for policymakers, industries, and the general public to address and mitigate the adverse effects of industrial pollution in this region.
