Abstract:

Significant risks for human health may results from exposure to non pathogenic toxic contaminants that are often globally ubiquitous in waters from which drinking water is derived to measure the Boron, 105B concentration in water samples in Basra governorate in north of Iraq. The measurements were performed by analyzing the water samples collected from 55 location using AAS Technique. The Boron concentrations which are obtained ranged from 0.1185 ppm in Alhwair - Al-Samayd to 1.539 ppm in Hawair- Harde river in water samples. The results are presented and compared with other studies. The results could be utilized to make distinctive supplementary contributions when contam- ination event occurs and to implement water quality standards by concerned authorities to maintain radioactive contamination-free drinking water supplies for the people. The study further reveals that 55 surface water samples have boron below detection limit. The presence of boron in drinking water sources in this territory is of natural origin. Thus, there is possibility of severe pollution problem with boron in near future.
