Abstract

In the current examination conducted to explore the quantity of health hazard toxic metals in River Dor at Jama site Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. In the present investigation a detail research work was carried out for the detection of heavy metals in the three selected site of the River Dor at Jama sampling station. The toxic heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb, Cr and Mn) were under study in the present survey. The main objective of the present study was to find out toxic heavy metals in the selected sampling point. In the current analysis the concentration of the toxic heavy metals obtained was Zn 1.12-1.86 ppm; Cu 1.03-1.24 ppm; Cd 0.04-1.35 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.28 ppm; Cr 0.02-0.17 ppm and Mn 0.01-0.03 ppm respectively. In the current examination Cu, Cd, Pb and Cr found above the standard levels while the remaining toxic metals such as Zn 1.12-1.86 and Mn 0.01-0.03 were found within the standard levels.
