LEVELS OF SELECTED HEAVY METALS IN THE SOILS AND MEADOW SWARD WITHIN THE RANGE OF INFLUENCE OF ROAD NO 4 IN THE DĘBICA DISTRICT

Keywords: soil, heavy metals, meadow sward, influence, transport route
Abstract: The aim of the studies was to determine which influence the public road No 4 running through the Dębica district has on the levels of some heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Pb and Cd) in the soils and meadow sward in the vicinity of that road. The results showed no significant contamination of the soil environment with the heavy metals studied. The observed enrichment of the turf layer of soil with zinc, lead and cadmium, as compared to the subsoil, was most probably caused by a point source of pollution and does not justify excluding these areas from agricultural production. The concentrations of heavy metals, except cadmium, in the grass sward taken from the soil-sampling site did not generally go beyond the limits specified for fodder. In the case of cadmium the value limiting the fodder usability of sward (0.5 mg ? kg-1 d.m.) was exceeded at some points, which, howewer, does not justify the withdrawal of this fodder from use.
