Results obtained indicate the absence of soil with sodium adsorption ration SAR values ranging from 3.
As a hydrological result it is found that:• It is hoped that the conclusion of this study will enable Nigeria to put in place and enforce certain minimum environmental standards for solid mineral exploration and exploitation. Keywords:,Downloads 179. The project was started in 1971, and the initial research was conducted in 1976—77 when the scheme was still in its first phase, and restricted to 3000 acres.
The methodology used for this research includes a field survey; direct mapping of mining activities; assessment of the impacts of exploration and exploitation; documentary analysis; and observations. This article takes a closer look at the environmental impact of irrigation. Irrigation can result in the following indirect impacts: Waterlogging Waterlogging occurs when the soil becomes oversaturated with water, promoting anaerobic conditions. the flow is increased These may be called direct effects.
Because less water finds its way into the ocean, coastal erosion may occur, which damages coastal ecosystems such as mangroves and their habitats.
The environmental implications of solid mineral exploration and exploitation were analyzed. Shipping opportunities are also affected as large ships and other water transportation vehicles are left with insufficient water to appropriately navigate, reducing trade and economic activity in certain areas.
These changes to the climate are a direct result of changes to natural moisture levels in the surrounding atmosphere. eds Rural Development in Tropical Africa. A survey, mapping of activities, assessment of impacts, and observations of areas were carried out. Additionally, these effects take a longer time to develop and produce longer-lasting changes.
the in the scheme is increased• Indirect Environmental Impact Of Irrigation Irrigation systems also have an indirect impact on the surrounding environment. 1981 The Kano River Project, Nigeria: the Impact of an Irrigation Scheme on Productivity and Welfare. Less often, irrigation is used to control dust, to get rid of sewage, and to aid in mining projects. The collection and experimental analyses of representation soil and water samples from each scheme were used to assess the current status of each receptor.
Specifically, irrigation may lead to decreased fishing and shipping opportunities. This paper will focus particularly on the stated reasons for introducing irrigation and the specific assumptions which have shaped the design of the project and, in turn, the implications these decisions have for present and future rural development in the area.
Irrigation projects can have large benefits, but the negative side effects are often overlooked.
Irrigation, sometimes referred to as an irrigation scheme, is the act of redirecting water for a specific purpose.
In addition, best management practices for reclaiming surface mines could also be put in place.
