Abstract: Physico-chemical analysis were carried out on samples collected from four sampling stations located along a stream that receives effluent discharge from an Abattoir in Ibadan, Nigeria using standard methods. The data revealed that the effluent discharge had high temperature (33.48±0.354°C); H{7.70±0.86); TDS(2363±166.46mg/1); TSS(11032±424.95mg/1); BOD(3898±150.78mg/1); COD(6738.5±204.43mg/1); total hardness v(448.25±33.51mg/1); SO42(15.303±0.389mg/1); NO3(24.13±0.593mg/1); PO42(5.283±0.221mg/1); b NH3(76.14±0.938mg/1); Ca(63.33±2.4041 mg/1); (375±33±5.175mg/1);Na(975±27.54mg/1); Fc(5.52±0.44mg/1); Mn(0.433±0.092mg/1)and Zn(0.307±0.020mg/1). DO was not detected in the effluents. Comparison of the water physico-chemical status and the abattoir effluent load indicates that, there seem to be pollutional stress of the stream.
