This research used analysis of metals that were found in the river in different regions and depths. The PH, electrical conductivity (EC), and total dissolved salts (TDS) were measured; the nitrate ion was measured spectrophotometrically, but chloride, carbonate, bicarbonate, magnesium, and calcium were measured using a titration method. Sodium and potassium ions are detected by a flame photometer. The concentrations of ions used in this paper range from 5–100 ppm for nitrates in the river and from 2.5–70 ppm for tap water. The calcium and magnesium were found to be (50-125), (150-250) ppm respectively in the river, (50-93), and (177.5-238.5) mg/L in tap water. (64.7-147.6) ppm for chlorides in the river, and (72.01-98.4) in tap water. (5-8), (4-28) ppm for carbonate and bicarbonate in the river respectively. (4-10), (10-20) ppm in tap water. (142-345), (3–10) ppm for sodium and potassium in the river, (92–167), and (l.44–5) ppm in tap water. The PH values that were used were (5.59-8.94), EC (0.54-1.02) gs/cm and TDS (225.13-564.6) ppm. Many parameters were evaluated as a result of this research in order to determine the quality of the water. The value of the river has resulted in contamination in these areas. The water in the river was high in alkanes, causing pollution. As a result of these actions, the quality of water may be harmed momentarily or permanently.
