Regression Models to Examine Water Quality Index of Akabuta Stream

Chinedu Ukpaka


Research carried out in this article is aimed at establishing mathematical tools, models that be used to monitor and predict water quality index concentration of Akabuta stream. The models developed seemed to be useful in monitoring and predicting water quality index as coefficient of determination of station A.

Keywords: akabuta, Akabuta community, regression model, stream, water quality index
