Due to its particular physical and chemical conditions, river estuary can affect the structure and concentration of heavy metals present in river water at the time of mixing freshwater and seawater. The mixing of saline and fresh water plays an essential role in autopurification and sedimentation of heavy metals. In the present study, the autopurification of Cd, Co, Ni, Cr and Pb elements was assessed during mixing of Caspian Sea and Shafarood River freshwater in its estuary under laboratory conditions and through controlled potential reduction, pH, DO, and salinity. The rate of heavy metal flocculation at the estuary was Cd (62.2%)
