This work consists of assessing the degree of pollution caused by wastewater near the gulf of Arzew-Algeria. This study is based on the analysis of the physicochemical parameters, the parameters indicating pollution and the determination of heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cd, Fr, Cr, Ni) on seawater samples taken from the site. Four companions of seasonal sampling were carried out during the year 2015. The results obtained show significant values in physicochemical parameters, pollution indicator parameters and heavy metal content in seawater samples. The results of the pollution indicator parameters show the presence of important pollution at the site studied. The results obtained are far superior to the Algerian standards defined.
It is clear from the determination of heavy metals that the site under investigation shows a slight contamination by metals. The absence of treatment and the long-term exposure to these discharges will lead to severe metal pollution in seawater.
