Abstract

A survey was carried out to find out the concentration of health hazard heavy metals in River Siran at Shinkiari Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. In the present research health hazard heavy metals such as Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb, Cr and Mn were analyzed from the selected sampling station in river Siran at Shinkiari. The heavy metals obtained in the current research were in the range of Zn 1.14-1.85 ppm; Cu 1.04-1.25 ppm; Cd 0.02-1.35 ppm; Pb 0.05-1.27 ppm; Cr 0.03-0.16 ppm and Mn 0.03-0.08 ppm respectively. Cu, Cd, Pb and Cr were found exceeded the permissible ranges while Zn, and Mn were found within the permissible limits.
