Abstract

Water becomes toxic by addition of pollutants such as heavy metals which altered the water Chemistry. Without water life is not possible in the universe. For the analysis of heavy metals a detailed research was designed in River Harrow at Kharala Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. For this purpose six heavy metals were selected. The selected heavy metals were Pb, Cr, Zn, Mn, Cd, and Cu respectively. The Heavy metals examined in the present research were Zn 1.13-1.78ppm; Cu 1.02-1.23ppm; Cd 0.03-1.39ppm; Pb 0.03-1.24ppm; Cr 0.03-0.15ppm and Mn 0.04-0.09ppm respectively. The present investigation summarized that that Cr, Cu, Cd and Pb were found above the permissible limits while Zn and Mn were above the permissible range.
