Studies the layout of system, chemical, and physical characteristics of wastewater flowing in open drains in the city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Shows that some open drains are well constructed and lined, while most of the others are not. Wastewater in these drains, especially in high density areas, are dark in appearance with high levels of turbidity, total solids, BOD, chloride and hardness. The rivers into which these drains discharge are always contaminated with refuse items, with the result that aquatic life is endangered.
