In this study, a completely randomized experiment was designed with four irrigation treatments and three replicates. The irrigation programs were raw wastewater, treated wastewater, a combination of 50% raw wastewater and 50% potable water and a combination of 50% treated wastewater and 50% potable water. The experiments were run within a greenhouse. The lysimeters were built up on September 2009 and they were filled with two layers of soil. The upper (0-30 cm in depth) and lower (30-70 cm in depth) layers were sandy loam and sandy clay loam, respectively. A total of eight watering programs with an interval of elevens-day were applied. After each irrigation program, intake wastewater and drainage water of each Lysimeter was sampled in order to analyse the transport of heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Fe and Mn, Ni, Cd and Pb). Results showed that the effect of water quality was significant on percentage of transport of heavy metals. The lowest transport percentage of heavy metals belonged to raw wastewater treatment. Also, the highest percentage of transport of Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni and Pb belonged to the combination of 50% raw wastewater and 50% potable water. In most cases, we observed that the transport percentage of these elements increased by continuing the irrigation
