Abstract

The current study was designed to explore heavy metals in River Siran at Beer Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The amount of heavy metals obtained in the present research was in the range of Zn 1.15-1.75 ppm; Cu 1.03-1.25 ppm; Cd 0.07-1.37 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.26 ppm; Cr 0.03-0.19 ppm and Mn 0.09-0.11 ppm respectively. The present investigation reviled that Cu, Cd, Pb and Cr were above the permissible range while Zn and Mn were within range. The present research summarized that this sampling station of river Siran was impure by the heavy metals.
