Based on the soil test of heavy metals in wastewater irrigation area in eastern Inner Mongolia, this paper analyses the content of heavy metals Cr, Cu, Cd, Pb in different layers of soil samples and reveals the internal relations between heavy metal concentration gradient in the vertical direction and soil properties, thus providing a scientific basis to guide sewage irrigation, solve the problem of water shortage in wastewater irrigation area and carry out environmental impact assessment. Soil is an important subsystem in natural environmental systems, through which many pollutants, especially heavy metals, produced by human activities, enter the food chain and ultimately do harm to human health. Currently, heavy metal ion contamination to the soil caused by wastewater irrigation has become one of the focuses in the study of soil chemistry and agricultural environment pollution. For this reason, it is particularly important to study the migration mechanism of heavy metals in soil and to provide a reliable theoretical basis for the prevention and management of soil contaminants.
