Water constitutes one of the most precious natural resources without which no form of livelihood is possible. Good quality water is needed to maintain ecological balance and for economic development activities, but scarcity of water is increasing, hence planning, monitoring and management of these natural resources should be undertaken. Therefore quality and quantity of accessible water must be studied so as to make possible the concept of sustainable development. The water sample from the case study contains average chlorine, manganese, Alkalinity, Irons and low bacteria counts are suitable for drinking, and it is assumed useful for other purposes such as sanitary and domestic works, By purifying it. Chemical contents of the stream sample were within the recommended limit of World Health Organization (WHO) but PH and Alkalinity were slight near the limit but cannot cause diseases to humans as the chemical usually affected water colour and taste. Therefore, surface water in Offa local government area, Kwara State is suitable for its consumption this research paper relied on World Health Organization (WHO) permissible limit as reference. The government should ensure that proper waste disposal mechanisms are incorporated to reduce the effects of surface water contamination from disposal wastes. ...
