Abstract

The main resources of water toxicity are Heavy metals which cause serious health problems. Ultimately aquatic life is badly affected. For the assessment of heavy metals a brief study was carried out in River Indus at Dasu Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Overall six heavy metals (Pb, Cr, Zn, Mn, Cd, and Cu were detected. The Heavy metals recorded in the current study were Zn 1.15-1.87 ppm; Cu 1.07-1.21 ppm; Cd 0.04-1.33 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.27 ppm; Cr 0.02-0.18 ppm and Mn 0.05-0.09 ppm respectively. From the current research it can be summarized that that Cr, Cu, Cd and Pb were found above the standard values. So this point of the study area was found contaminated and not recommended for use of both aquatic life and land organism. It might be adversely affected on the inhabited peoples near to this point.
