WATER QUALITY EFFECT ON CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH: 

OGUNPA STREAM WATER CASE STUDY

Gbenga Matthew AYININUOLA

Conclusions

            An in-depth study of the effect of water obtained from two sections of Ogunpa stream on concrete compressive strength has been carried out.  The following facts emerged:

       Ogunpa stream water contains high concentration of chemicals that inhibit the development of concrete compressive strength.

       In general, for all construction that involves using concrete, the need to investigate suitability of water proposed for concrete work prior to commencement of work should be strengthened by all structural and civil engineers.

       Potable water is relatively scarced in developing and third world countries, the temptation is always there to use available water. The engineers-in-charge of construction work should ensure that contractors comply strictly with specification of water for concrete work.
