The assessment of the groundwater quality is an important way to ensure its sustainability for various uses. In this study, the suitability of groundwater for irrigation and drinking uses was assessed by determining the water quality index, sodium adsorption ratio, electrical conductivity, Kelly’s ratio, and sodium percentage values of water samples. The results show that not all the groundwater in Hajeb Layoun-Jelma Basin can be used for irrigation. According to World Health Organization guidelines and the national standards, the major parameter data of drinking water indicate that the majority of the analyzed samples of groundwater in the area are suitable for drinking.

Abstract

The assessment of the groundwater quality is an important way to ensure its sustainability for various uses. In this study, the suitability of groundwater for irrigation and drinking uses was assessed by determining the water quality index, sodium adsorption ratio, electrical conductivity, Kelly’s ratio, and sodium percentage values of water samples. The results show that not all the groundwater in Hajeb Layoun-Jelma Basin can be used for irrigation. According to World Health Organization guidelines and the national standards, the major parameter data of drinking water indicate that the majority of the analyzed samples of groundwater in the area are suitable for drinking.
