    Lake Qarun suffers from several environmental problems. It receives agricultural and sewage drainage water from Fayoum Province. Variations in the levels of five heavy metals (Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn and Pb) seasonally estimated in water collected from different areas of Qarun lake during (August 2014 to May 2015). Results of the current paper indicated that the high heavy metals levels were recorded at Al-Batts drain (B1) and Al wady (w1) seasonally, where The distribution patterns of heavy metals at Al-batts drain (B1) followed an abundance of: Fe>Zn>Mn>Pb>Cu seasonally accept autumn and Fe> Mn>Zn>Cu>pb at Al-Wadi Drain (W1), seasonally. Also, the results revealed that Al-Batts drain contained more heavy metals concentrations than Al Wady drain. On the other hand, the results illustrated that Pb and Cu were the lowest levels, but Fe showed the maximum levels in water .. Read More»
