Geoelectrical Evaluation of Waste Dump Sites at Warri and its Environ, Delta State, Nigeria|
Egwebe, Otobo; Aigbogun, C.O. & Ifedili, S.O.
The existing waste dump sites in Delta State were investigated without soil disturbance by using
the vertical electrical sounding (VES).The soil overlying the aquifer at Ovwian-Aladja dump site has resistively
values, 11.84-85.50 Ohm-m, thicknesses,21.10-31.83m and at depths less than 1m, while at Warri it has resistively
values, 160-1074 Ohm-m, thicknesses, 1.53-7.87m, and at depths less than 1m. The soil overlying the aquifers in
the dump sites have been identified and the implication to the quality of the sites discussed.
