Water samples from six (6) differimt locations (Lowojerij Man Chohnari Ngaiate, Ngunnuri Awa !sari and Abbari) around Lake Alan were collected and analyzed for physical (temperature. condudivity, tUrbidity. Colour, pH an4 Alkalinity) and chemical (Lead, Cadmium, Manganese, Iron, Cobalt, Mercwy, Nickelj Copper, Chromium, Zinc and Arsenic) respectively .. Phosphate and sulphate levels were ~ determined. Result showed varying values with respect to locations. The pH ranged between 7.6±0.3 to 8.45±0.50mgll); Turbidity 6.0:1:0.80 to 12.3±6.NTIJ and Al~alinity 86.5±1.50 mg/1 to 95.3±1.50 mg/1 re.-pectively. Similarly, results showed varyii~ concentration values \Vith location C (Nga fate) having the highest concentration of lef!d 0.60±0.30ppm, Arsenic 0.30±0.03ppm, Copper 0.54±0.32ppm. as against other locatio~s: Also location B (Man Cllolmari) showed high values 44.7±3.00mgll and 8lJ4 98±1.40mg/l respectively thereby indicating high level of entrophication making the ru;~ not fit for aquatic. The results of other par..nneter examined tends to fall within the W{IO re1.:ommended standard . val~.
