The study has express the rate of permeability influences on the Cryptococcus in the study location. These were to monitor the behaviour under the pressure of low deposited permeability in lateritic and silty formation. Variation of Cryptococcus were expressed in various condition through the theoretical values from the simulation, the concentration from various phase of the simulation express variation influences from permeability mostly in lateritic formation, such condition were observed from the level of concentration in various phase in the simulation values, application of mathematical modelling were to ensure that the behaviour of the microbes are thoroughly captured in the study location, experimental values were compared with the theoretical values to validate the model, the study is imperative because experts will definitely examined the influences from low permeability on the deposition and Cryptococcus concentration in the study area.
