ABSTRACT
This study aimed to evaluate the discharge waters in the Nerodime River and the impact of the seasons on the quality of the surface waters of the Nerodime River. Research data were collected at six locations along the Nerodime River in three seasons of 2021. During this research, 14 Physicochemical parameters and total coliform bacteria were analyzed. Based on the study results, most of the tested parameters are above the maximum values allowed in conformity with the legislation in Kosova (Administrative Instruction (MMPH) No 30/2014 and Administrative Instruction (MMPH) No 16/2012). CCA (canonical correspondence analysis) indicates that Total coliform bacteria were in positive correlations with turbidity, color, chlorides, sulphates, and total coliform bacteria. This Poor quality is a consequence of anthropogenic activities including industrial water and sewage discharge.
