Resumen : Guinea coast. It is a shallow expanse of water with restricted circulation in a micro-tidal environment. This aquatic resource of multiple usages receives inputs of domestic The Lagos Lagoon is the largest of the four lagoon systems of the Gulf of hydrocarbon cooling water from a thermal power station and emissions from automobile exhaust. Micro-pollutants examined in the water, sediment and biota have included organic waste, trace heavy metals and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Concentrations detected have identified â hot spotsâ and relatively unpolluted areas for the different contaminants in the lagoon. The results show marked variations and non-uniform distribution from one season to another. It has been difficult to differentiate pollution effects from natural variations in the general milieu of contaminated water. A monitoring program is recommended as a measure to restore the water quality following compliance with management policies and regulatory framework introduced for the protection of the coastal water.
