Water quality is very important in the environment, because life depends on this, it's very good to check the quality of water time to time to check the rate at which it is been degraded. The objective of this work is to determine the physiochemical and heavy metal parameter of abattoir effluent to surface water and compare the standard to WHO. Two empty bottles were used to collect sample from the surface water, GPS was used to get the geographical coordinate and samples were taken to the laboratory for Analysis. Most of the heavy metals and physiochemical parameters falls above and below the range of WHO, while some were not detected. This work provide support for the water quality and help us to know the effect and abattoir effluent in our environment.
