Abstract
Dump site leachates, augmented by surface oxidation and solubilization of cations and anions, and are causing widespread distribution of potential pollutants to the Imgi stream. This study examines the surface physical, geochemical and hydrological characteristics to assess the release of various metals and sulfate. The study also examines the surface water transport of selected ions in the stream to assess non-reactive and sedimentation prospects of different ions. Further, The local soil characterization vis-a-vis unaltered soil was also made to determine the pyhsical degradation.
