|Abstract:||One River Basin is a major river basin producing water for domestic and material purposes for communities and industries within the catchment The seasonal variation in water quality of Orle River was examined based on sampling carried our between 1987 and 1997 Several physical quality parameters were analyzed. Results show that while parameters such as solids, colour, taste and air temperature were higher in the dry season between 1987 and 1997, pH and water temperature were higher in the wet season between 1987 and 1997 for water temperature only and a lower pH was recorded only in 1997 The dry season is the period when the local populace depends heavily on the water in the rivers compared with the wet season when they could gather rainwater using the various methods Levels of pollution in the basin are mild, it however requires that the water be treated to make it safe for consumption|
