Boron Determination in Basrah Rivers Using Solid State Nuclear Track Detector

, Thaer Salman

Abstract: Consumers who ingest boron-contaminated food and water face a variety of health concerns. As a result, the food boron content must be determined. For this research, drinking water samples were collected from different areas in southern Basrah, Iraq. The collected water samples were examined using the SSNTDs method to determine boron levels. Boron values in the Al Khatwa district ranged from 0.21 ppm to 9.8 ppm in Al Shuaiba farm2. The results of this investigation were compared to worldwide standards and prior studies. The Iraqi government may use these data to establish guidelines for reducing radioactive pollution of Basrah's drinking water. The boron levels in the 43 surface water samples evaluated in this study were lower than the international standard limits. However, there are some regions where the rates are quite high. As a result, in most areas, the boron level in Basrah's drinking water is normal. However, there is a possibility that boron pollution will become a major issue soon. As a result, further research will be needed in the future.
