Influence of Urbanization and Industries on the Pollution of Rivers of Gjilan Municipality, Kosovo

V. M. Beluli


Gjilan (42˚28’08” V, 21˚27’48” L) is one of the seven largest cities in Kosovo. Throughout the city flow three rivers: Mirusha and Stanishor which mix and discharge into the largest river called Morava. The reason for the research of these rivers is the extreme pollution resulting from the discharge of industrial waters. Analysis of these rivers shows that they are extremely polluted and some physicochemical parameters are not in accordance with the regulations of the European Union (EU) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Parameters analysed are: pH, CW, NTU, DO, COD, BOD5, A-HCl, HCO3, GH, CS, Cl, Cl2, Ca2+, Mg2+, NO2, NO3, PO43–, and NH3.
