Introduction

1.1 Background to the Study

According to Traven (2000) water is defined as a liquid substance that is clear, colourless and odourless, capable of existing in a liquid, solid and gaseous phase. It is a basic necessity of life, second to air, because it serves as a source of nourishment to man, animals, micro organisms and even plants.
