Abstract

This study provides information about the phosphate and nitrate concentration in water at Kota Kinabalu City Bird Sanctuary (KKCBS). The levels of nutrients at KKCBS were compared with the Interim Malaysian Water Quality Standards 1987. The findings will act has a guideline for future recreational developments at KKCBS. Ultraviolet Screening method was used to obtain the nitrate concentration and the Stannous Chloride method was used to obtain the phosphate concentration. The phosphate levels were found to be in the range of 0.01 - 0.07 mgl-¹ and nitrate levels were 0.003 - 0.012 mgl-¹. The main drain flowing through the sanctuary was found to be the main contributor of phosphate in the water bodies and soil sediments are the main source of nitrate. KKCBS has a low concentration of nutrients in the water compared to the Interim Malaysian Water Quality Standards 1987 and Likas Lagoon. Future development at the area is considered feasible.
