Concentrations of ammonia, nitrate and nitrite and four physicochemical parameters (temperature, conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS) and pH) were determined in sea water samples mixed with waste water sources from Jannat and Yadar waste water channels in Misurata city, Libya. Sea water samples have been studied at a different distance from the point of the convergence of the sea water with the waste water sources. The concentrations of ammonia, nitrate and nitrite and physicochemical parameters have been calculated. The analyzed samples showed mean concentrations (mg/l) range of 7.5 ±0.34 to 14.0 ±0.74, 0.1 ± 0.005 to 0.31±0.02 and not detected for nitrate, nitrite and ammonia respectively. The data showed the variation of the investigated parameters in samples as follows: temperature 13.1±0.85 to 17.6±0.98 șC pH 7.39±0.35 to 7.67±0.55, conductivity (EC) 48.18±1.1 to 53±1.8 ms/cm3 and total dissolved solid (TDS) 31.32±0.75 to 34.45±0.81 mg/l.
