Effluents samples obtained from Oko Oba Municipal abattoir at Agege, Lagos State, Nigeria were analyzed for physicochemical and bacteriological properties. Water samples from the Abesan stream into which the effluents were discharged and groundwater samples around the area were also analyzed. The physicochemical parameters determined were Total Dissolved Solids (TDS); Total Suspended Solids (TSS); Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD); Nitrate Concentration; Turbidity and Total Coliform (TC). Values obtained for abattoir effluent samples from drainages within and outside the abattoir analyzed were significantly high (p<0.05).  The values obtained for groundwater and Abesan stream water were significantly high (p<0.05), though by comparison there were little differences in the values obtained for each parameter determined for the water samples from these sources. However coliform values obtained are significantly higher than that obtained for the abattoir effluents.

Keywords: Abattoir, Effluents, Physicochemical, Bacteriological, Surface water,  Groundwater, Coliform.
