Sediments from two tributaries (Haldi and Rupnarayan) of lower stretch of Hugli estuary were analysed for Lead, Cadmium, Copper, Nickel, Zinc, Iron, and Cobalt. Average concentration of Ni, Pb, Co, Zn, Cu, and Cd in sediments from Haldi river was 22.4, 13.9, 11.8, 48.7, 17.0, 1.3 mg/kg respectively and the concentration of Fe was 2.01 %. On the other hand average concentration of Ni, Pb, Co, Zn, Cu, Cd in Rupnarayan river sediments was 22.4, 14.3, 11.8, 49.5, 15.1, 1.6 mg/kg and the concentration of Fe was 1.72 %, respectively. A variable correlation coefficient was observed between the metals. The average Pollution Load Index (PLI) of heavy metals in the sediments of both the rivers was 0.50. The concentrations of heavy metals determined in this study were found to be lower than earth’s background and sediment quality guideline values. The heavy metals in these tributaries do not reflect any severity of contamination.
