Abstract: This study takes a look at the effect of the refuse dump on the Karu stream in Karu, Nasarawa State of Nigeria used to service fish ponds. There may be atmospheric pollution that is transferred to the water body by setting, by direct absorption or by runoff and other precipitations. The reference point for identifying and assessing pollution is the impact it has on human being is of interest. Samples were taken at points before the domestic waste concentration, Point of Refuse Concentration, Mid-Point and Point of Leaving along the stream. The pH value obtained ranged between 7.78 and 7.97 at the Control Point, Point of Refuse Concentration, Middle Point and Point Leaving respectively. The temperature at these various points ranged between 30 and 320C The quantity of suspended solids ranged between 124-359, the colour ranges between 60 and 137, alkalinity had a range between 192 and 420, The quantity of suspended and dissolved solid of the stream was noticed to increase from CP to PL whose values ranged from 124-359
