For healthy and safe drinking water supply, monitoring and controlling the water until it reaches the end consumer is very important , F,As, Cu, Fe, Mg, Ammonia analyzes were performed in the water samples taken from the villages of Van Bardakçı, Çitoren, Kevenli Gölyazı and Tabanlı at Yıldız University Faculty of Science and Van YY Central Laboratory. Thoroughly washed and rinsed with 1/50 diluted HCl and rinsed thoroughly into a transparent pet bottle. After 3-5 minutes of water to be sampled and rinsed at least 3 times with the same water, water samples were taken. According to these results, Cu level was found most in Gölyazı village, F, iron, ammonia and As in Tabanlı village, and Mg was found in the highest amount in Kevenli. The French hardness was found to be the highest in Tabanlı village. pH was found to be highest in Kevenli village and hardness was the highest in Gölyazı village. When the values obtained in this study are taken into consideration, it is seen that the composition of the waters of 4 different villages can be used as potable water, although their composition is different, except Tabanlı village that had high amount of As. It is necessary to find new water resources in this village and local authorities must give necessary importance fort this case. Keywords: Ammonia, Heavy Metals, pH, Water Quality, Water Hardness
