Rain water samples were collected from four tanks presented in four areas of Misurata, Libya. All the samples were analyzed for four physicochemical parameters such as temperature, conductivity, total dissolved solids (TDS) and pH, and four heavy metals, viz., Fe, Cu, Pb and Cd using standard procedures. The data showed the variation of the investigated parameters in rain water samples as follows: temperature 25.01-27.65șC, pH 7.87 - 8.54, conductivity (EC) 397.5 - 843.75 ”simens/cm3, total dissolved solid (TDS) 258.4 - 548.4 mg/l. The ranges of concentration of Fe and Cu in rain water (”g/L) were and 17-82 and 2.8-13.9, respectively. The investigated parameters and concentration of heavy metals in the rain water samples from Misurata were within the permissible limits of the World Health Organization drinking water quality guidelines.
