This paper describes an investigation of the Odra River in western Poland, where channelization works preceded an extended period of heavy industrialization and documented riverine pollution. The study explores the distribution of sediment-associated heavy metals stored within both former and contemporary groyne fields, constructed during channelization works. The results indicate that large and extensive sediment quantities of moderately polluted sediments are stored immediately along the banks of the River Odra. These sediments could be a significant secondary pollution source and therefore careful maintenance of contemporary bank protection structures is required
