Physio-Chemical and Toxicological Study of the Water of the Lubumbashi River, in Democratic Republic of Congo
The absolute necessity ofwater in the life of man remains undeniable to the point that some people thinkthe water is the life. Metals are ubiquitous in surface waters. But theirconcentrations are generally very low which explains their name “trace metals”or “trace metals”. However, when the mining begins operating a metal-richdeposit, a change operates especially in waters in contact with these miningworks. This study aims to determine the pH of the river water Lubumbashi, andthen measure the accumulation of trace elements in the food chain in order toevaluate the risks to human health. The pH of the recorded values are withinnormal limits (6.5-9.5); Site 1 has an average pH of 7.962 (±0.185); the site2 and 3 had a pH of 8.140 (±0.210) and 8.331 (±0.082) respectively. The samplesof water show v,ery low levels of metals which not exceed normal values with theexception of the Cd. This mineral element presents concentrations higher than0.003 mg/l. The pH of the river Lubumbashi water meet......
