2D and 3D Subsurface Geo-electrical Resistivity Imaging of Contaminant Plume from Cassava Processing Mill in Uzebba Area of Edo North, Edo State, Nigeria|
EHILENBOADIAYE, JI; AIGBOGUN, CO & OSAMUDIAMEN, G
Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) was used to map and detect the subsurface contaminant
plumes from the cassava effluents in the various cassavas processing mill in the study area. The result from the 3D
resistivity images showed clearly the distribution of the plumes from all the profile lines in the surveyed area. From the
results it is evident that at a depth of 2.5m-21.9m with resistivity values between 6.2Ωm-13.1Ωm the plumes were
observed. The results thus point out the need for environmental Education and proper management/location of cassava
processing mill by the relevant agencies of Government.
