Analysis of selected surface water components in the town of Siedlce, Poland

Abstract

The paper presents results of a research study into levels of selected surface water components in Siedlce, Poland. Water was sampled in the Muchawka Reservoir and the Muchawka River in March, July and November 2012. Two techniques were applied in the study: isotachophoresis and atomic absorption spectrometry. The analysis results of water sampled in the Muchawka Reservoir indicate that they are borderline compliant with standards for the Class 1 surface waters. On the other hand, the Muchawka River samples were found to be out of any quality class.
