Results obtained exhibited that As, Cd, Cr, Fe, Mn & Pb were not found in any studied groundwater samples whilst Cu (0.00 – 0.25 mg/L) found only in sample G2 & Ni (0.00 – 0.02 mg/L) were below recommended values. Only Zn (0.54 – 18.07 mg/L) was exceeded the ISI permissible limit for potable water in samples G2 & G3.
