  • Deepor Beel Wetland: Threats to Ecosystem Services, Their Importance to
           Dependent Communities and Possible Management Measures

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Sep 2019
      Source:Natural Resources and Conservation  Volume  7  Number  2  Jekulin Lipi Saikia   Deepor Beel, only Ramsar site, is located in south-west of Guwahati, Assam. The Deepor Beel is the only storm water storage basin for the entire Guwahati city besides having enormous environmental and biological importance. But wetland is deteriorating due to various anthropogenic factors. The restoration and conservation of the wetland became the need of the hour due to growing frequent flooding in the Guwahati city. The current uses and historical uses of the wetland by the local community are discussed by focusing on the practices of two indigenous communities who have been dependent on wetland for centuries. These communities are Karbi and Koibortra community. It discusses the reasons for the shift of two communities from indigenous practices. From two different community perspectives, ecosystem services to the local community and its linkages to poverty were discussed. The current state legislature for the conservation of the wetland and its implementation and drawbacks were discussed. This is the direct testimony of the members of the respective community who has been suffering due to degrading condition of the wetland. A framework has been developed to understand the current situation of the Deepor Beel, and its implication on ecosystem services and its possible responses were drafted in this paper.

  • Effect of Seasonal Variation on the Physicochemical Characteristics of
           Borehole Water in Ogbaru Communities, Anambra State, Nigeria

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2019
      Source:Natural Resources and Conservation  Volume  7  Number  1  Onuorah Samuel   Igwemadu Nkiruka   and Odibo Frederick   Analysis of water boreholes in Ogbaru Communities, Anambra State was carried out during the dry and wet seasons to determine the effect of seasonal variation on their physicochemical characteristics. Fifteen drinking water boreholes were sampled from different locations in the communities. The pH values were in the range of 3.4-8.3; temperature, 28-29℃; electrical conductivity, 15-238us/cm; total suspended solids, 0.00-0.25mg/l; total alkalinity, 4.0-27.0mg/l; total acidity, 2.5-7.5mg/l; total hardness, 30.0-84.0mg/l; calcium hardness, 0.6-3.4mg/l; magnesium hardness, 6.8-18.0mg/l; total chlorides, 7.3-66.5mg/l; sulphates, 0.00-0.04mg/l; cadmium, 0.01-0.32mg/l; lead, 0.00-0.08mg/l; arsenic, 0.00-0.04mg/l and iron, 0.00-0.05mg/l during the dry season while the pH ranged from 4.8 to 8.5; temperature, 25-28℃; electrical conductivity, 41-910us/cm; total suspended solids, 0.03-2.01mg/l; total alkalinity, 12.0-40.0mg/l; total acidity, 5.0-22.5mg/l; total hardness, 45.0-94.0mg/l; calcium hardness, 1.8-10.4mg/l; magnesium hardness, 10.3-21.7mg/l; total chlorides, 52.8-96.6mg/l; sulphates, 0.00-0.06mg/l, cadmium, 0.03-0.34mg/l; lead, 0.01-0.20mg/l; arsenic, 0.00-0.04mg/l and iron, 0.02-0.08mg/l during the wet season. These results showed that the season had pronounced effect on the physicochemical characteristics of the water from the boreholes sampled. Some of the boreholes studied did not comply with the World Health Organization standards for potable water in terms of pH, total acidity, cadmium, lead and arsenic and require adequate treatment before drinking to safeguard the health of the users.
