Abstract

The current study aims at determining the water quality of the Nimrud district wells, southwest of Mosul, for drinking  and civilian purposes by using the Canadian model of water quality. The aquatic samples were collected from randomly distributed wells in the area during the dry season
for chemical and physical testing to assess their quality. The results of the study indicated the high levels of most of the studied characteristics, which reflected negatively on the values of CCME WQI (Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environmental Water Quality Index), where 70% of them classified as poor quality water for drinking and domestic use. The study recommended periodic monitoring of the quality of water with water treatment processes before being used for drinking.
