Abstract
This project is aimed to assess the impact of municipal solid waste (MSW) dumpsite on the quality of groundwater in the vicinity of an MSW dump site. Groundwater samples were collected from specified locations near the dump site and analyzed for physico-chemical and microbial contaminants. The objective was to evaluate the extent of contamination and its implications for the surrounding environment.This study observed that, the groundwater quality around the dump site is not satisfactory for drinking purposes in few samples out of 8 locations. In sample number 1, 4 and 6 high EC, hardness and microbial contaminations were observed as the sampling points were very much close to the dump site and also sample 6 failed to have a good WQI indicating significant pollution in water, emphasizing the urgent need for effective MSW management practices to mitigate negative impacts in the future days and protect human health. This study provides valuable insights for future research and underscores the importance of regular assessments of environmental attributes to determine the saturation capacity of the surrounding environment. By implementing scientific MSW management strategies,it is possible to minimize pollution load on the environment and promote a healthier and sustainable environment for future generation.
