In this study, drinking water throughout the province of Bingol in eastern Turkey has been established in 2013 for the determination of copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), cobalt (Co) and iron (Fe) concentrations of the Turkish Standards Institute (TSE) as humanitarian drinking water standards. For the study, a total of 13 samples were taken from the drinking water sources located in Bingöl province, previously washed with 1% HNO3 solution, using 1.5L volume pet bottles with locked lid. Water samples were analyzed with the AAS device. According to the results of the analysis; Cu and Fe concentrations were found to be high and Mn and Co concentrations were high. In the regions where Mn and Fe concentrations are high, taking the necessary precautions regularly is important for public health.
