Toxic metals can affect the biosphere for long periods of time and their movement through the soil and contaminate groundwater. Using plants as food contaminated with heavy metals is a high risk to human health and animals (Wang et al., 2003). The research was conducted in 2010-2011 in the Neferal-Acumulatorul area to identify pollution with heavy metals as a result of industrial activity in the area. To determine the degree of pollution were performed research on physic and chemical characteristics of the soil in the area and retention degree of heavy metals in the upper soil profile especially zinc, copper and lead. This paper presents the correlation between retention of heavy metals and main physical and chemical properties of soil in the study area.
