Determination of Some Heavy Metals in Water Collected From River Chublat (Hassan Abdal) Pakistan

Salma Bilal, Sami ur Rahman

Rivers are contaminated constantly by heavy metals from the atmosphere. Considering this fact, the World Health Organization and Environmental Protection Agency recommended qualitative and quantitative assay of heavy metals in drinking water. Although many studies on heavy metals in water have been conducted in other countries, little has been done in Pakistan in this regard. The perspective of this study was to determine Chromium, Copper, Lead, Cadmium, Zinc, Manganese, Iron, Nickel and some light metals, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium levels in the water of Chublat River Hassan Abdal (Pakistan). For this purpose six water samples were collected from the river. Batch mode of studies was performed to evaluate the indigenous properties of the collected samples. Then the concentrations of the metals in water samples were determined by using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. The concentration of some heavy metals such as Chromium, Cadmium, Iron and Nickel in the waters samples were above the permissible levels established by the WHO, Pak-EPA, US-EPA and Canadian limits for drinking water.
