Investigations of Bottom Sediment Formation of the Ili River
AbstractWe have investigated the content of heavy metals (Fe, Mg, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cu) in water and sediments of mouth reaches of the Ili, Kaskelen, Issyk, Turgen and Chilik rivers. The calculation of the sediment contamination affect on the quality of watercourses is also provided. Samples of water and sediments were taken from in advance-designated sites of the Ili River and its inflows for the assessment of the sediment pollution impact. The maximal concentrations of heavy metals were found in the Kaskelen and Issyk rivers.
