Atmospheric wet depositions have distinct characteristics in terms of associated pollutant types and influential parameters. This paper discusses the concentration of some heavy metals (Pb, Cd and Ni) in selected urban areas for wet depositions. Wet deposition samples, which are represented as rainwater collected from October 2013 through April 2014. The results indicated that industrial area exhibits the higher mean concentrations of Cd, Ni and Pb. Overall results imply that important anthropogenic sources are likely the most sources of heavy metals in this region.
