Abstract

Road deposited sediment and surface runoff samples were collected and analyzed from selected major in Kuching. The concentration of heavy metals such as Fe, Zn, Cu, Cd, Cr, Ni, Pb and Mn were analyzed quantitatively using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. Fe was found to be the highest concentration in road deposited sediment with a value of 162.77mg/kg and Zn was the highest for surface runoff with a value of 0.54mg/l. The highest metals concentration in road deposited sediment and surface runoff was found to be at Batu Kawa Rd. Mean concentration at Batu Kawa Rd roads for road deposited sediments were found to be in the following order Zn > Fe > Cu > Cr > Pb > Ni > Mn > Cd Meanwhile in the surface runoff, the mean concentration were found to be of the following order Pb > Zn > Fe > Ni > Mn > Cu > Cd > Cr.
