Silting of water reservoirs by bottom sediments is one of the major problems of their service. Industrial wastes, geochemical structure and metals mining create a potential source of heavy metal pollution in the aquatic environment especially in sediment. Water reservoir Ruzin located in east Slovakia is one of the most contaminated sites by heavy metals originating from mining activity. The paper deals with the study of sediment quality from three different deep sampling sites from Ruzin reservoir by using of XRF, XRD analysis and the determination of the effect of pH on the redistribution of metals in sediment-water system.
