Abstract: Physicochemical parameters and metals concentrations of water used for irrigation at Babani Quarters in Bauchi metropolis, Nigeria were determined in October 2013 to find its suitability for irrigation purpose. In this study, it was found out that most of the parameters were within WHO/FAO maximum limit set for irrigation water. But, among all the five sampling locations, Pb, Cd and NO3− levels exceeded WHO/FAO limit and hence pose a threat to receiving soil and vegetation.
