Boron is none uniformly distributed, ubiquitous essential micronutrient element for the plant as well as human beings. The aim of this study is to measure the Boron, 10B5, concentration in water in Al-Diwaniya governorate (in Iraq). The measurements were performed by analyzing the water samples collected from 24 location using ICP/OES technique. The Boron concentration which is obtained ranged from 0.45ppm in (Al-dighara 4) to1.87ppm in (alhamza 6) in water. The present results are compared with other studies. The results could be utilized to make distinctive supplementary contributions when contamination event occurs and to implement water quality standards by concerned authorities to maintain radioactive contamination-free water samples which are needing for the people. The study further reveals that 24 surface water samples have boron more than the detection limit.
