Akpan, W. A; Offiong, A; Ebene, U

This paper is the study of the impact of Aluminium smelting on Ikot Abasi environment arising from the operational activities of Rusal-Alscon plant. The research was conducted by the collection and analysis of water samples at the plant site and host community. A control sample 100km from the plant sit a was also analyzed. These were compared with the Nigerian standard for drilling water quality .The analyzed sample results from the plant/host community contained pollutants in water that markedly exceeded the benchmarks standards. It is recommended that the Nigerian government should conduct a detailed assessment of the Aluminium smelting operations at Ikot Abasi to prevent serious environmental problems.
