Transit Monitoring of Residual Chlorine in Awe-Oyo Area of Nigeria Water Township Supply

*Owolabi, R.U &  Azeez, L.A

Abstract—This research work is a study of transit dechlorination of public water supply through underground lead pipe to different destinations taking samples at an interval of 0.5km and the microbial analysis of the transported water. The amount of residual chlorine was determined using DPD lovibond method which is effective, accurate and less cumbersome. The pour plate method was used to detect the growth of Salmonellae Shigellae, total coliforms and other microbes that could be present in the water. With time, the transported water dechlorinates. After some covered distance, the residual chlorine of the water had completely diminished thereby supporting massive microbial growth. The study proposes the likely causes of the transit dechlorination of water and prescribes measures to make the source safe to the end users.

Index Terms—Dechlorination, DPD Lovibond method, Pour plate method, Salmonellae shigellae, Total coliforms.
