Göksu Delta is an important wetland where the Göksu River reaches to sea in the eastern of the town Tasucu-Ice1. The contents of all pollutants in surface waters were determined for 4 different seasons between 2006 and 2008 and with these data a Geographic Information System (GIS) has been constructed by using Map Info. The source of excess concentration of various heavy metals is the agricultural activities and fertilizers. The water quality of Göksu River is modeled and determined that the waste water discharge of 10,700 m3/day from Silifke city does not create a serious problem because of the high amount of flow rate of Göksu River
