Abstract [en]

The levels, speciation of elements and toxicity of selected trace metals as well as other parameters in selected surface water, shallow groundwater sources, landfill leachate and associated surface runoff in the Lake Victoria basin, Uganda were studied. The WHO guidelines, Ugandan standards, Canadian guidelines and Swedish EPA were used for assessment. The shallow groundwater was acidic with pH values below 6.5. The pH, dissolved organic carbon, flouride and suphate levels for all springs were below the guideline values although 52.8% were contaminated with nitrates while 39% were contaminated with chloride ions. The water samples with had levels of major elements; iron, chromium, aluminium and manganese above the guideline values. Speciation studies showed that 74% of the metal ions were bound to dissolved organic matter in surface water whereas in landfill leachates the dorminant ionic species were metal hydroxides or fluvic acid bound. Risk analysis basing on the Swedish EPA showed that varied risks of negative effects in 30% – 76% of the sample sites ranging from high to increased risk in surface water whereas the results from Bio-met tool showed potential risk to toxicity effects of Cu2+, Ni2+, Zn2+and Pb2+ in 15.3% - 30.8% surface water samples and 8.3% - 62.5% groundwater samples.
