ABSTRACT
The aim of the present work was to establish the effect of dust from the EC3 power plant in Łódź on the content of heavy metals in the soil. The results of determination of Pb, Zn, Cr, Co, and Fe in the soil samples collected in the area of the city of Łódź presented in the work indicate that the main sources of soil contamination with these metals are primarily large industrial plants and heavy motor traffic. The power plant dust has no influence on soil content.
