Abstract: The water is a factor of production and fundamental element for the development of the peoples. With the intensification of its use, the water becomes faced as a finite resource. This is caused by the population growth. As a consequence of the increasing offer of disposable consumption products garbage and industrial solid residues are generated. Destination areas are improvised to the solid residues often without an appropriate infrastructure. Those areas frequently end if turning definitive and generating a series of upsets. Those areas, the landfills, are sources of the element mercury (Hg) that is considered a global pollutant with good mobility, found mainly in the water and aquatics foods, capable to cause dysfunctions in the nervous system leaving the world population in alert constant. This pollution restricts the use of the water, due to environmental problems and damages to the health of the population. In the municipal district of São Pedro da Aldeia, we realized chemical analyses, in water and sediment in a landfill area, measuring the concentration of Hg and some other metals (Fe, Mn and Zn), organic matter, pH, conductivity and sulfide, with the purpose of quantify the concentration of the metals and to study its behavior in the region.
