The laboratory experiment determined the heavy metals (Cd, Ni, Pb) ions concentration in soil solutions with incubation occurring at 5 and 20°C during 0 to 60 days. The maximum concentration of metals were registered after 10 days for Cd, 60 days for Ni and 10-60 days for Pb. Diversification at metals release between analyzed depth were not found. Increase of temperature from 5 till to 20°C caused release of higher content of heavy metals.
