An important indicator of pollution is the bottom sediments of reservoirs and watercourses, where metals are strongly bound. Depending on the factors at the bottom of the reservoir, metals can be a secondary source of pollution of the water body. Therefore, developing methods to immobilise metals in bottom sediments is one of the priorities for caring for surface water quality.
