Abstract

The study focuses on the public awareness of the effect of conveyance pipeline from Gurara reservoir to lower Usman Dam on Ecological degradation in Abuja, using data from questionnaire survey of about 150 households as well as field observation. The data from the survey reveals that over 30% ecological degradations are associated with the pipe-line conveyance. Loses due to land, habitats, biodiversity and degradation of the riparian vegetation were also assessed. Inspite of the high degree of disadvantages notices by the respondents, some beneficial aspects of the project was also evaluated and discussed.
