In the present study, some water quality parameters of Hasan Creek, which source from city of Osmaniye, flow through dense woody area and merge into Iskenderun Bay from Dortyol, Hatay, were investigated. The creek supplies the drinking water of Dortyol and Payas towns. Starting from May 2003 and sampling the water monthly for a year, water quality parameters of pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, salinity, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), total alkalinity and hardness, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, sulphite, sulphate, chloride, potassium, sodium, silica and total dissolved solids were measured in the present study. According to measured study results, changes in water quality parameters of Hasan Creek respect to the months were determined. Measured water quality parameters indicated that the creek water is suitable for the culture of cold-water fish such as trout.
