Abstract

This study provides a water resources management option through formulation of water budget for the main campus of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria using secondary data obtained from various sources. The data revealed that, water consumption in the campus in the year 2005 was 3,101 m3/d and 3,125 m3/d in year 2015. Available total surface water resources (ATSWR) are 24,410 m3/d while utilizable total surface water resources (UTSWR) are 3,214 m3/d. The investigation shows that, at the time of this study ATSWR was more than UTSWR. The Authors prepare water budget: Total surface water resources (TSWR) in the campus are 24,410 m3/d while utilizable surface water resources (USWR) are 3,214 m3/d.
