The objective of the current study is, therefore, to determine chromium deposits on roofing iron as both a factor and indicator for accelerated corrosion of the roofing iron sheets by chromium (VI) transformation in adjacent villages of the Akaki-Kaliti industrial zone of Ethiopia.
Three different groups of the roofing iron materials were collected.
Briefly, 1.00 g of the corrugated roofing iron was cut into small pieces, dissolved in 30 ml of 5 M HCl and 10 ml conc.
Interestingly, the profile of chromium deposits in the corrugated roofing iron samples showed variation with the direction of the effluent discharge.
Strong winds can pick up even large items such as outdoor furniture, trampolines and roofing iron
that could potentially damage windows, roofs and cars.
Sheets of roofing iron
flew around from other houses, and she watched as a coconut palm in her garden was snapped in half.
"The medium terms considered, include the permanent relocation of people in high risk areas, who are willing to be relocated to higher grounds through the provision of incentives such as roofing iron
sheets as well as clean water for areas where water might be needed and targeted temporal suspension of school development fund payments by poor households in flood affected areas," Kaapanda explained.
Driven by a shared imperative, we co-operated to mount roofing iron
in the prickle-bushes over the creek.
