Abstract

The current exploration was made to find out the concentration of heavy metals in River Dor at Dobandi site Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. In this study three sampling stations (Upstream, Mid Point and Downstream) were selected in River Dor at Dobandi site which were away from one another 100 meter distance. The aim of the present research was to analyze heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb, Cr and Mn in the River Dor at Dobandi sampling site. In the current examination the concentration of hazard heavy metals recorded were Zn 1.15-1.89 ppm; Cu 1.05-1.27 ppm; Cd 0.07-1.39 ppm; pb 0.06-1.27 ppm; Cr 0.03-0.19 ppm and Mn 0.03-0.05 ppm respectively. In the present investigation Cu, Cd, Ob and Cr were above the permissible limits while Mn 0.03-0.05 and Zn 1.15-1.89 were found within the limits.
