In order to investigate metal contaminations to sediments by E-waste treating activities in a small scale valley located in Longtang Town and Shijiao Town, Guangdong, China, 0~40cm sediment samples of a pool and a small dam within the E-waste acid-treating and open-burning area, and surface sediments(0~5cm) of upstream, midstream and downstream of Dayan River crossing over the area were collected. Concentrations of metals in the samples(Zn, Cu, Pb, Cd and Cr for the sediments of the pool and… CONTINUE READING
