Investigation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) Pollution in Pazarsuyu Stream (Giresun, Turkey)

Writer(s): Ozlem Tunc Dede 1, Melike Sezer 2, Sevtap Karakurt 3,

This study covers the investigation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) pollution in Pazarsuyu Stream which is located in East-Black Sea Basin. 14 PAHs analyzes were performed on water samples taken from a station on the Pazarsuyu Stream every month, covering the period of February 2017 - December 2017. The results of PAH analysis were evaluated according to annual average and maximum values of PAH parameters given in Water Quality Regulation. The results of the analysis showed that PAHs values change periodically, especially the amount of PAH increases in rainy periods. According to the results, it was seen that 5 PAH parameters (benzo (b) floranten, benzo (k) floranten, benzo (a) piren, benzo (g,h,i) perilen ve indeno piren) among 14 PAH parameters, exceeded the annual mean values given in Water Quality Regulation.
