Abstract [en]

The growth of human population often corresponds with change in land use, including expansion of urban areas, which necessitates increasing the available amount of drinking water. As the surface water sources are more amenable to pollution, it has become necessary to use groundwater at an increasing rate. Groundwater is normally abundant in the alluvial region where the urban areas are often located. Such areas face a greater risk of pollution of groundwater due to several factors. Surface water resources are becoming more scares in Iraq which gave a tendency to use groundwater. In this research, groundwater vulnerability in part of the western desert had been studied. It was noticed that the area has low risk for the contamination of ground water.
