Considerable loss of soil structure leading to loss of agricultural productivity and disruption of socio-economic activities in the area. Various measures proffered to check the menace of soil erosion in the study area include: vegetation establishment through massive aforestation (bamboo tress establishment), digging of catchment pits for flood waters in compounds and public open spaces, provision of adequate drainage channels for flood water control and environmental education through public enlightenment programmes.
