Abstract [en]

Groundwater is one of the main resources from the earth, especially for arid or semiarid

countries. For this reason, it is very important to keep it unpolluted. Drastic

Model is one of the widely used models to detect groundwater vulnerability to the

contaminants that are found on ground surface. In this model, it is assumed that the

vulnerability of the groundwater is affected by seven hydrological parameters. They

are: depth from the surface ground to groundwater, net recharge into the aquifer

from the surface, aquifer media, soil media, area topography, impact of vadose zone

and aquifer hydraulic conductivity. In this study, the DRASTIC model was applied

on the northern part of Babylon governorate in Iraq, to predict the vulnerability of

Groundwater in that area. The results indicate that the vulnerability is very low to

low grade.
