Efteni lake is located within in northwest of Turkey between the latitudes 41? 50′ to 40? 40′ North and the longitudes 30? 50′
to 31? 40′ East. Besides the biological richness of this buffer zone, it is located on a special hydrological area. The lake is
inter-wined with Melen river that is being considered to fulfill the future water necessity of important nearby cities. The main
purpose of this study is to investigate the effects to water quality at all inflow-inside area and outflow (Bigger Melen River) to
Buffer Zone. This study is the first study to reveal hydrological importance of the field variance in terms of nonpoint pollution.
In this study water quality parameters of the water (inflow-outflow) were monitored during spring. The flow rates were measured
and samplings were made. Some basic water quality parameters (pH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved
solids, resistivity, salinity and temperature) were measured in the field. The nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, TOC and phosphorous
parameters were analyzed in laboratory. The results show that the buffer zone had overall positive effect on water quality. The
nitrite in May and the nitrate in June reach their corresponding peak values. The pH decreased slightly but it was always higher
than 7, the dissolved oxygen (from 10 to around 3 mg/L) and saturation dramatically decreased during spring time. As a result,
being located at an important location, the Efteni wetland deserves to be protected and monitored in order to have positive effects
on water quality
Ahmet Celebi continues his doctoral studies since 2007 at Sakarya university-Turkey and Oulu University-Finland about water pollution, metals and
risk assessment. He has studies about Global warming, Water quality and Watershed management.
