Study Of Soil Infiltrations Rate Due To Migration Of Leachate At College Road Dumpsite Kaduna North Using INAA Technique
Depth wise variation of heavy metal concentration and distribution in solid waste disposal site was examined to
investigate the rate of soil infiltration due to continuous disposal of solid waste in an open dumpsite. Six soil samples were
collected from a hole at an interval of 0, 25, 50, 100, 120 and 150cm depth profile respectively and analyzed using
instrumental neutron activation analysis technique. The results showed a varying concentration of the contaminants with
depth from top soil to depth of 150cm. It is recommended that further research beyond the scope of this depth be
investigated in other to elucidate the effect of ground water pollution around the dumpsite.
