Groundwater from the communities adjoining Abule Egba (ABE), Epe (EPE), Ikorodu (IKR), Olushosun (OSH) and Solous (SOL) dumpsites in Lagos State, Nigeria were collected and analyzed for Polybrominated diphenyl ethers. Water samples were extracted using liquid-liquid extraction followed by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectroscopy analysis using already validated standard method. PBDEs concentrations ranged from 7.1 ± 10.1 (IKR) to 78 ± 109 µgL-1 (ABE) for BDE 28; 5.4 ± 0.3 (OSH) to 31.5 ± 27.3 µgL-1 (ABE) for BDE 47; 17 ± 24 (ABE) to 183 ± 226 µgL-1 for BDE 100; 11.7 ± 16.5 (ABE) to 174 ± 217 µgL-1(EPE) for BDE 99; 117 ± 166 (ABE) to 2034 ± 2819 µg L-1 (EPE) for BDE 183; 296 ± 392 (IKR) to 4283 ± 1278 µg L-1 (EPE) for BDE 209. BDE 153 and BDE 154 were not detected in all the water samples while BDE 28 was only detected in ABE and IKR water samples. The BDE 209 was the most dominant congener in all the water samples. The cumulative HI values for children through ingestion route ranged from 4.95 E+00 (SOL) to 4.53 E+01 (EPE) while in adult, it ranged from 4.25 E+00 (SOL) to 3.88 E+01 (EPE). This study confirmed the presence of PBDEs at elevated concentration in groundwater. Since there is no regular supply of pipe-borne water in the study area, residents consume the contaminated groundwater and may therefore be exposed to endocrine disrupting chemicals. Government should provide pie-borne water for the populace and discourage people from living close to the dumpsites.
