Özet

Levels of some heavy metal pollutions in soils at around of a plant produced zinc, cadmium and lead metals were investigated. The contents of soils taken were compared with the metal contents in a soil collected from an area exposed to little or no contamination. The levels of examined metal pollution depend on directions and distances to the plant. A good correlation between the level of metal contaminant and wind blowing direction was also found.
