AbstractThe study concerned copper and cadmium contamination in bottom sediments of selected surface water reservoirs at the urban area. The concentrations of the metals in sediments was up to 20-times higher compared with a geochemic al background. Based on ecotoxicological evaluations, the toxic impact of cadmium in tested sediments can occur frequently, while for copper–it can sometimes be observed.The sediments can be classified as heavily polluted and dangerous to water biota, especially for sediment-dwelling organisms. The accumulation of metals migrating with the Służewiecki stream in reinforced reservoirs can result in their anthropopressure-related degradation.
