Evaluation of raw water quality in Wassit governorate by Canadian water quality index
Water Resource Department, Kut Technical Institute, Middle Technical University, Kut, Iraq
In this work an attempt has been done to evaluate the raw water quality in Wassit Governorate by using Canadian Council of Ministers of Environment Water Quality Index (CCME WAI). Six stations along Tigris River were located and the field work was conducted during one year from October 2015 to September 2016 in collecting data. Twelve water parameters were used to evaluate the water quality index (pH, turbidity, total dissolved solid, total alkalinity, total hardens, nitrate, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, and sulfate). The raw water quality in Wassite Governorate has been ranged between (65-79) based on CCME WQI results, which means that the river has not been in its good condition, and need to be manage to control the sources of pollutants by monitoring to keep them in their natural condition.
