Abstract

The present study was designed to examine the concentration of lead in drinking water in Khartoum, Arbagi, Dagala, Wadshantoor, Saleem. Fifty samples of drinking water which collected from different houses in Khartoum, Arbagi, Dagala, Wadshantoor, Saleem and other samples from the Blue Nile for comparison during the period 2013-2014 were analyzed for its lead content by Atomic absorption spectrometry method. Mean lead concentration in samples of drinking water in this study was ranging between 0.012ppm (Blue Nile)-0.046ppm (Khartoum)with a median of 0.02ppm. A positive correlation was found between urbanization and lead mean concentration (0.046ppm) in Khartoum w.r.t (0.025ppm) in Gezira state. So this study recommended that the drinking water delivery system should be free of lead.
