In this study, eight different surface water resources located in five villages of Gölcük, Kocaeli, were tested between June 1999 and 2000 to determine the NO3-N, Cl and pH values. Temporal variation in these parameters reflects changes in precipitation. The test results showed that the NO3-N, Cl and pH levels varied between 0.65-0.11 mgL-1, 0.54-0.04 mgL-1 and 8.33-5.15, respectively. Data showed a strong relationship between NO3-N, Cl and pH concentrations and amount of precipitation. Based on this fact, water quality of these surface water resources were also examined.
