Abstract

The paper shows the results of the accumulation of chemical elements in the limescale formed upon evaporation of underground water used by the population of Irkutsk and Tomsk oblasts. The levels are established for the accumulation of heavy metals, including rare earth and radioactive ones, in the dry residues of the limescale.

Key words
