DEPARTMENT OF SOIL SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT,
FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE &NATURAL RESOURCES.
Soil erosion is a grave environmental hazard that has both natural and human causes. This study is a review of the effects of soil erosion on the water sources in the Northeastern Enugu State, Nigeria. Since, water is viewed as an indispensable natural resource for all facets of human development and well being. Its utilities are gradually being destroyed by soil erosion, induced siltation, eutrophication, pollution, water related diseases transmission and channel abrasion. Stringent application of the proffered soil erosion control strategies, outright ban on land use activities at the fringes of the surface water bodies especially in the rainy season, correct water shade management, government subsidization of soil erosion control as well as regular monitoring of these measured by environmental protection extension personnel will stem in the deterioration of water sources in the study area.
