A study investigated physicochemical parameters in environmental matrices along the river Cerica waters. A correlation between the actual level of pollution of this river and its impact on the Drini i Bardhë River was determined. The extent of its pollution, was conducted following the identification of pollution sources, which consequently allowing to determine the necessary steps for their isolation. The monitoring of heavy metals, physicochemical parameters, nutrients was carried out in all country-sample (locations). In particular, there where significant sources of pollution of surface waters, as a result of industrial activities and wastewater discharge. Determining of the locations and heavy metals concentrations was carried out in sediments and agricultural lands in this region, with the purpose to reflect the actual state. Keywords: Drini i Bardhë, Cerica, water quality, sediment, soil, pollution, monitoring.
