Abstract


Câmpia Turzii is a city in NW of Romania that lies on the Arieș River. This study included the determination of pH, EC, TDS, permanganate index and dissolved trace metals (Cu, Zn, Mg, Mn, , Pb, Al, Ni,) from water sampled from the Arieș River and its tributary. The results indicated that the river (in Câmpia Turzii area) can be framed in the highest class of quality, while its effluent is moderately polluted. Even thought, with a low flow rate, the tributary`s chemical composition does not affect the quality of the Arieș River.
