Apples, grapes, and pears, especially hazelnuts are mainly produced in Taraklı District of Sakarya Livestock breeding is also important in the region. In this study, three different water sources samples were taken which were used extensively for using irrigation purposes by local producers in two sampling times. Some of the analysis such as pH, EC, CO3, HCO3, CI, SO4, P, NO3, NH4, Na, K, Ca, Mg, B and heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Ni, Pb, Cu, Zn, Mn and Fe) were done in the samples. SAR (sodium adsorption ratio) and RSC (sodium carbonate residue) parameters of waters are compared with the limit values. As a result of the irrigation water analyzes, waters were in classified as C2S1- C2S2 irrigation water. These waters can bring Na damage in clayey soils with high KDK capacity. In addition, the C2 class irrigation waters may need to be washed in low-permeability soils for low tolerance plants. Heavy metal pollution was not found in irrigation water sources.
