Abstract

In the present study, a total of 21 surface water samples were collected from Ghaggar River from Haryana and Punjab regions during September (2006). Collected water samples were analyzed for seven heavy metals viz., Fe, Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb and Hg. Concentration of heavy metals in the river water exhibited the following order: Cd > Hg > Fe > Cu > Zn > Pb. High concentrations of heavy metals in the river water may be due to discharge of industrial and agricultural wastes. The obtained results will be useful for policy makers for water quality management purposes.
