Summary  

Water and phosphorous fertilizer samples from Karakalpakstan in the Republic of Uzbekistan were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, (ICP-MS) to demonstrate the water quality in drinking water, rivers and canals. Uranium concentrations exceeded the WHO (2004) guideline levels for drinking water at some sampling points. Since uranium can also have a toxic effect on kidneys, the effect of uranium from drinking water on people in these areas is significant. One of the main pollutant sources is the phosphate fertilizer leached from agriculture land.
