Concentrations and Human Health Risk Assessment of Selected Heavy Metals in Surface Water of the Siling Reservoir Watershed in Zhejiang Province, China
Anthropogenic and agricultural activities are deteriorating drinking water quality of the Siling reservoir. Spatio-temporal variations and risk assessment of select heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Mn, Fe, Cr,
Survey of trace metals in drinking water supplied to rural populations in the eastern Llanos of Venezuela.
TLDR
Calcium and magnesium concentrations were found to be extremely low during the four sampling periods, probably because of the carbonate bearing scarcity in the soils lithic component, and the rest of the metals complied with the Venezuelan and International guidelines of quality criteria for drinking water.
Health risk assessment of inorganic arsenic intake of Cambodia residents through groundwater drinking pathway.
TLDR
Elevated arsenic concentrations in groundwater may lead to thousands of cases of arsenicosis in the near future if mitigating actions are not taken, and individual health risk assessments of arsenic exposure through a groundwater drinking pathway is compared.

Samples were collected from four (4) underground water sources in Enyigba Pb-Zn mining district, near Abakaliki in southeastern Nigeria. The samples were acidified to stabilize the metals for periods
Assessment of Dissolved Heavy Metal Pollution in Five Provinces of Zambia
Zambia’s economy is hinged on mining activities with Cu being the main metal. Zn and Pb were mined at one point in Kabwe town. There are also known deposits of Co and Mn. The study focused on
Comparative Assessment of Heavy Metals in Drinking Water Sources in Two Small-Scale Mining Communities in Northern Ghana
TLDR
Levels of Hg, As, Pb, Zn, and Cd in water from Nangodi exceeded the World Health Organisation (WHO) stipulated limits of 3.0 for Zn and 0.003 for Cd for drinking water, and levels in Tinga exceeded the stipulated WHO limits.
Drinking water quality and human health risk in Charsadda district, Pakistan
Abstract Access to safe drinking water is one of the basic human rights and essential for healthy life. The present study investigated the concentrations of various pollutants in drinking water and
Health risk assessment of heavy metals and their source apportionment in drinking water of Kohistan region, northern Pakistan
Abstract The present study was conducted to investigate heavy metal (Cu, Co, Cr, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn and Cd) concentrations of drinking water (surface water and groundwater) samples in Kohistan region,
Heavy metal contamination and human health risk assessment in drinking water from shallow groundwater wells in an agricultural area in Ubon Ratchathani province, Thailand
TLDR
People living in warmer climates are more susceptible to and at greater risk of groundwater contamination because of their increased daily drinking water intake, which may lead to an increased number of cases of non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic health defects among local people exposed to heavy metals by drinking the groundwater.
