Abstract

The main objective of the present research was to explore the concentration of heavy metals in River Harrow at Saral site Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. For this purpose a brief study was designed to for the evaluation of six selected heavy metals in River Harrow at Saral sampling station.  The concentration of heavy metals obtained in the current study was in the range of Zn 1.18-1.73 ppm; Cu 1.04-1.23 ppm; Cd 0.06-1.35 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.24 ppm; Cr 0.04-0.18 ppm and Mn 0.06-0.09 ppm respectively. The current research summarized that Cu,Cd, Pb and Cr were above the standard levels while Zn and Mn were within range. The current research reviled that this site of the river was contaminated by the heavy metals.
