Thirty-five soil samples were collected from the Tanning FactoryIndustrial District within Baghdad city to investigate the soil pollution occurthrough four directions of the tanning plant. The soil samples exhibited highconcentrations of Cr than the reported values of worldwide mean of unpollutedsoils. The geoaccumulation index showed that the soil samples were moderatelypolluted by Cr at the north of the factory while the soil sample showed extremelypolluted at the south and east of the factory. Moreover, the soil samplescollected from west of the factory were strongly polluted. The result of thecalculated enrichment factor (64.52-1075.22) showed to extremely highenriched and suggesting a significant role of anthropogenic pollution because ofvarious industrial activities by the Tanning Factory
