Preliminary investigation of coagulation activity using Moringa oleifera, alum and activated carbon mixture in well water treatment


Author(s): Aminu Ahmad, Dr. Sunusi Yahaya, Umar Dalha and Sunusi Hudu

Abstract: Investigation of coagulant of Moringa oleifera, alum and activated carbon mixture (matrices) in well water treatment were carried out on well water of Kofar Gabas of Jahun. In this work water quality assessment test, jar test were carried out. It was noted that there is general reduction in TDS values, and they are all within WHO recommended range i.e. (˂ 300mg/L). There is decrease in pH values for the whole matrices used below the WHO recommended of 6.5-8.5, since MO is in high percentage in all matrices. Low TDS values and average conductivity as well as closeness of pH values to recommended range given by WHO, made matrix B best of three matrices prepared.
