Stream flow samples were collected with distances downstream along Opomulero Stream in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State. Three sampling points were carefully selected along the stream flow. The examined water parameters were Turbidity, Colour, Dissolved Solid, Hardness, Chloride, Iron, Phosphate, PH, Dissolved Oxygen, Calcium, Nitrate and Magnesium. A comparison of these parameters at the sampling point 1 and 3 shows that all the parameters exhibit trend of decrease in values downstream. Even though most of the parameters are within the WHO standard, this does not make the water from the stream potable unless proper water treatment procedures are applied. The paper calls for further research in the area of monitoring water quality.
