A study of some heavy metals (Cu, Zn and Cr) concentrations in natural groundwater has been conducted, by considering samples collected from the area located in the neighbourhood of Saligny village (Cernavodă, Romania). Atomic absorption spectrometry methods with thermal and electrothermal atomization has been developed, tested and used for some heavy metals content determination. The results show various concentrations of Cu, Zn and Cr in groundwater samples.
Key words: Heavy metals / groundwater / radioactive waste repository / atomic absorption spectrometry / Romania
