Recent sediment serves as a major reservoir for contaminants as it possesses an ability to bind various chemicals together. To safeguard the members of the public from an unwanted exposure, studies were conducted on the sediments of alkhasa valley where this valley play a very important role in agriculture of Kirkuk -Iraq. The average of uranium found in present study is (1.33 ppm) with range (1-1.6 ppm), the maximum concentration of uranium is (1.6 ppm) in last station (KSD7) and the minimum in first station (KSD1) with value (1 ppm). The results indicated safe levels of U activity in all stations.
