Abstract

The current study was conducted to explore the quantity of toxic metals such as Pb, Cd, Zn, Cr, Cu and Mn in River Dor at Sarai Saleh Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Three sampling sites were selected for detection of heavy metals. Results obtained from the present study comprise Cu 1.05-1.27, Cd 0.06-1.39, Pd 0.06-1.29 and Cr 0.03-0.16. These heavy metals were beyond the permissible range. The remaining two heavy metals Zn 1.15-1.81 and Mn 0.04-0.07 were found within the permissible limits. The concentration of exceeded heavy metals might be a risk factor for many diseases. This site of the River Indus is not suitable for agricultural activities and cattle’s use because of high concentration of toxic metals availability. To avoid this health hazard pollution, both Government and public support is necessary.
