Abstract

The properties of groundwater in some wells digging on the border of Iraq with KSA along 400 km from Al-Nekheab at west to Al-Salman at south of Iraq were evaluated. Eleven wells were chosen as a case study depended on variable of water depth and stratum properties. Water samples were taken at two periods the first one at summer and the other at winter reason. The chemical properties of these samples were compared with the standard limits to evaluate the quality of water for different uses. The main parameters used for evaluation process are negative and positive ions, total dissolve salt, electrical conductivity, and turbidity.
Finally, conclude the usages of water of investigated wells were un-permitted for drinking purposes except well No.10 unless treated by purifying process, but can be used for irrigation for soil which has high permeability and good drainage in addition to plant have high strength for salinity. In the other side all wells mostly used for livestock usages and poultry.
For industrial usages only well No.(10) can be used for industry of cement. While all wells can be used for building purposes except wells No. (1, 2, 7, 11).
