Abstract
This paper evaluates the behaviour of Ammonia deposition in silty clay formation. The lithology of the formation through detailed investigation shows that the rate of hydraulic conductivity was observed to be very low in silty clay soil. the derived model were to monitor the behaviour of the soil in terms of Ammonia deposition in the study area, such conditions were monitored to have hinder the transport of Ammonia due to low deposition including permeation and void ratio of the soil, these were considered to have generated the accumulation of Ammonia in the study area. The developed model were monitored in industrial area were this substances were observed to predominantly deposited in these locations, such condition were essential to monitor and to predict the concentration rate in silty clay formation, the accumulation of this substance may migrate to porous medium and contaminate the Phreatic bed, more so, the deposited substances are known to be one of the substrate, this implies that it will definitely increase the deposition of any other microbial contaminant in the study area thus generate more contaminant in Phreatic bed. The developed model was simulated to generate theoretical values, these were compared with experimental values and both parameters express best fits validating the developed model for the study.
