Monitoring of heavy metal traces has a vital influence and is of prime importance for all living things. Tehran as one of the most crowded metropolises together with its eastern suburbs are the centre of different industries involving dye manufacturing ones. Unfortunately, the wastes of these plants pollute the surface and underground water, directly. Ultimately, these polluted waters may contaminate drinking water sources of the city. This probability as a warning for respective organizations encouraged us to determine lead and other probable metallic species contents in the collected waste water samples of dye factories using flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES).
