The purpose of this study is to determine the physico-chemical properties (temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, suspended solid, nitrite nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen, orthophosphate and sulphate) within the water quality of 8 different streams flowing into the South eastern Black Sea coast. The water samples were collected monthly from April 2016 to March 2017 at a specified point at which the Melet, Aksu, Degirmendere, iyidere, Salarha, Buyiikdere, Firtma and Hopa streams flow into the sea. The physical parameters of the water samples were measured using a portable multi water quality meter (HQ40D), and analysed the chemical parameters using a spectrophotometer (HACH-LANGE-DR3900). The Gravimetric method was used to obtain suspended solids matter (SPM). The analysis results were compared with national and international quality standards and regulations for drinking as well as non-drinkable water.
