Abstract: The Canakkale-Kirazli region (Turkey) is enriched with minerals, especially aluminum (Al), which dangerously get transported into aquatic media due to several mining and geological activities in recent years. In this study, Al and other potentially toxic metals (PTMs) including B, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Si, and Zn, in both water and soil samples, were measured for quality determination. Selected metals were also analyzed by the enrichment factor (EF), the geoaccumulation index (I-geo), the contamination factor (CF), and the pollution load index (PLI) to evaluate both water and soil pollution geogenically or anthropogenically. Also, the metals were clustered to support the pollution source with Pearson's correlation, principal component analysis (PCA), and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA). Forty-five natural water samples and 12 soil samples were collected spatially. To perform pollution assessment, two fundamental treatment processes to remove Al pollution from the sample including the highest Al concentration (38.38 mg/L) in water were applied: (1) precipitation with pH adjustment and (2) removal with ion exchange. The pH values of water samples were changed in the range of 3-9 to test the dissolution of Al. The results demonstrated that the study area was mostly under the influence of geogenic aluminum pollution.
