Evaluation Of The Abidjan Lagoon Pollution|
Briton Bi, G.H.; Yao, B. & Ado, G.
The Abidjan lagoon pollution evaluation via the physicochemical and biochemical
characteristics of effluents pouring in it, in order to take decision concerning the installation of a treatment station
was reported. All samples of effluents studied contain high quantity of organic and mineral pollutants except for
samples from a hospital (effluent II). However, the analysis of the ratios COD/BOD of the different effluents
showed that the corresponding wastewaters have a domestic character and are therefore easily biodegradable.
