Heavy metals may easily move through air system and may deposit and accumulate in soil system by water precipitation away from their sources. The objective of this research was to evaluate the soil concentrations of Pb and Cu in the vicinity of several sources of heavy metals in Lampung, the southern part of Sumatra, Indonesia. Soil samples were collected at distances of 0 (Central Points) to 500 m from the presumed centers of heavy metal sources including industrial areas, heavily traffic/rail roads, and residential areas of Panjang Bandar Lampung, Tanjung Bintang and Natar, South Lampung. The results show similar patterns of Pb and Cu distributions along the sampling points. The soil concentrations of Pb and Cu were highest at the central points (0 m) and decreased with distances towards the farthest sampling points of 500 m. The concentrations of Pb and Cu in Panjang were higher than those in Tanjung Bintang and Natar.
