Abstract:

In this short paper a study of LUKAYA River pollution has been undertaken by means of the determination of biochemical demand in oxygen kinetic constant (BDO). The values of this constant have shown that the water of LUKAYA River is unsuitable to drink without treatment. The electrical conductivity values variations testify a great contamination and a strong mineral kingdom of the milieu. Turbidity values evince the pollution confirmed by the above mentioned parameters (BDO kinetic constant and conductivity).


Keywords: LUKAYA River, Kinetic Constant, Pollution, Velocity of pollution, Streeter and Phelps models.
