Abstract

Aquatic environment are badly affected by contamination via Heavy metals through various sources. These sources may be naturally weathering process or anthropogenic activities. Worldwide, heavy metals contamination is a serious problems facing to the current era. For evaluation of heavy metals, a research work was conducted in River Dor at Mankarai Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Water samples were collected from the selected three sites of River Dor at Sarai Saleh point for the analysis of heavy metals. In this assessment, the concentration of heavy metals obtained was Zn 1.13-1.86 ppm; Cu 1.03-1.25 ppm; Cd 0.04-1.35 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.28 ppm; Cr 0.05-0.17 ppm and Mn 0.03-0.07 ppm respectively. The present study reviled that four heavy metals Cu, Cd, Cr and Pb were found exceeded from the permissible limits. From the present survey, it can be reviled that water chemistry of this site is affected by the toxic effect of heavy metals contamination.
