Water Pollution in Fim Kassar Well 1A
Ghulam Abbas, Muhammad Yousaf and Rizwana Aleem Qureshi

The present study has been conducted to determine the water quality and estimation of heavy metals of Fim Kassar Nallah. The water quality parameter including Hardness, Alkalinity, Total Suspended Solids and pH. The water samples were collected from the selected site for the period of six month from January to June 2005 on monthly basis. The data indicates that the amount of total suspended solids and electrical conductivity is not suitable for aquatic life. The values of pH were found more or less same during the six months. The values of total suspended solid were found to be higher during the month of June while there is no significance difference could be found between dissolved oxygen. The heavy metals including Copper, Zinc, Lead and Cadmium were tested by using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The data show that there is no significance difference among the concentration of heavy metals. The level of Copper and Zinc were found to be tolerable range which is 2 and 5 mg L-1 respectively, while the values of Cadmium and Lead were found higher than tolerable range for aquatic life which were 0.005 and 0.015 mg L-1, respectively.
