Abstract [en]

Heavy metal pollutants are a worldwide concern. It causes negative effects on aquatic organisms and human health. Heavy metals concentration and transport of copper, zinc and cadmium were investigated in high and low flow conditions in Trönningeån River, southern Sweden. A total of 33 surface water samples collected from the river and Kistingebäcken tributary were analyzed. Concentration (high to low) of heavy metals in the Trönningeån   river and its tributary were- copper(Cu) > zinc (Zn) > cadmium (Cd). The concentration of Copper was found to be high in low flow condition whereas in the case of zinc, high concentrations were found in both the flows (high and low). Study further showed that, the tributary has high pH and conductivity. And finally, the study concluded that there is high concentration and transport of heavy metals in the above-mentioned industrial tributary.
