Abstract
The heavy metal distribution in unfiltrated water samples of the most important rivers and lakes of N. Greece during a period of one year was studied. The high level of heavy metals found in some of the water systems were indicative of an anthropogenic contamination. A direct dependence of the suspended heavy metals on the rivers' discharge could be only partially determined. The heavy metal concentrations were correlated to the pollution sources in every acceptor and the results were discussed and compared with those of other regions.
