Abstract

The microbiological studies and water demand population forecast in Idanre community from Arun stream were analyses and the following results were obtained. Total coliform was present with value of 2.00±0.01 while others (E coli, Faecal Streptococci, Yeast / Mould) were absent. The results from the evaluation of Arun stream from the stipulated forecasting revealed that if quantity supply (Qs) is greater than Water demand (Qp) then the water can supply the population but if the Qs is not greater than Qp then the water cannot supply the population. The quantity supply (Qs) is 47,439,648 l/day while water demand is 36,704,443 l/day. This revealed that Qs is greater than Qp  in the calculation of the Arun stream in Idanre Hill, then the stream can supply the population in  Idanre Township without scarcity in the raining season at the stipulated period.
