In Georgia there are many sources, whether natural or anthropogenic, which causes environmental pollution by arsenic compounds. Arsenic sulfide ore mining, processing and production of arsenic-containing drugs was carried out for decades (Racha-Lechkhumi and lower Svaneti). In the Article is presented studies of eco-chemical conditions for soils contaminated areas with arsenic industrial wastes (in the village Uravi - Ambrolauri Municipality, village Tsana - Lentekhi Municipality) and surface water (River Tskhenistskali and Lukhuni) 2014-2016years. The sampling of the soil and water, conservation, labeling, storage and transportation were produced in the accordance with the International Standard Organization (ISO) standard methodology. The study was conducted in laboratory by the ISO standards and USEPA methods in soil samples arsenic will be determined by plasma–emission spectrometer. The survey results shows that the arsenic maximum content in 2014 were observed in the vicinity of Uravi white arsenic treatment plant, where the arsenic maximum concentration was 61814.9 mg/kg and in the settling of the surrounding area - 36373.7 mg/kg; According to the 2015 data a high value was observed only in the samples from the 3rd site and settling in the village Tsana. The results were the following 59025.0 mg/kg and 55795.0 mg/kg. Ecologically most polluted rivers are: Tskhenistskali and Lukhuni. River Tskhenistskali (upper Tsana) arsenic concentracion in 2014 exeded the MPC. While in 2016 the concentrations were in the norms and in most cases it has been a declining trend. In 2014-2016 years the project "Arsenic Containing Mining Waste Management in Georgia", was ongoing between the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources Protection of Georgia and the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands. The project was carried out in bilateral financing, which aims first urgent works to be carried out near the territory of the former arsenic hazardous plants, resulting in decreased concentrations of arsenic in the study areas.
