Abstract

Teluk Salut and Teluk Mengkabong are saline lagoons those receive seawater input. A study was carried out to determine the concentration and distribution of total heavy metals (Cd, Cr and Pb) in both lagoons. The temperature, pH, salinity, conductivity, turbidity and TSS of the lagoons water of Teluk Salut and Teluk Mengkabong were measured during the sampling event on 14th October 2005 as water quality indicators. It was found that the Cd concentration were 0.01 ± 0.008 mg/L in Teluk Salut and 0.007 ± 0.001 mg/L in Teluk Mengkabong, Cr concentrations of 0.34 ± 0.06 mg/L in Teluk Salut and 0.36 ± 0.05 mg/L in Teluk Mengkabong, Pb concentrations of 0.19 ± 0.04 mg/L in Teluk Salut and 0.18 ± 0.01 mg/L in Teluk Mengkabong based on 0.7 to 1.8 m tidal ranges. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) for Cd, Cr and Pb concentration between Teluk Salut and Teluk Mengkabong.
