Özet

The concentrations of Ni, Pb, Cd, Cu and Co in drinking water from wells, direct sources or storage tanks in 18 sites of Kayseri (Turkey) were determined by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, after enrichment on an Amberlite XAD-4 resin to reduce the incidence of contamination. The levels of Ni, Pb, Cd, Cu and Co in the drinking waters were in the range of 2.9 to 9.5, 2.7 to 29.9, 0.7 to 3.1, 2.0 to 21.6 and 2.1 to 6.4 mu g/L, respectively. These values for the drinking water supplies of Kayseri City were below the maximum tolerable limits set by the WHO and the Water Pollution Control Regulation of the Turkish authorities. The correlation between metal ions were also calculated.
