Hydrogeophysical and Environmental Investigations of Groundwater Potentials in Al Sokhna Alluvium Aquifer in Zarqa - Jordan

[Hydrogeophysikalische Untersuchungen und Umweltanalytik zur Bestimmung des Grundwasserpotentials im Al Sokhna Alluvium Aquifer in Zarqa, Jordanien]

Sokhna basin is composed of alluviums and locates to the northern part of Zarqa Governorate in Jordan. The basin where many agricultural activities take place is recharged directly from the flowing streams of the effluent of As-samra WWTP and Zarqa River which is illegally the disposal site for the treated and untreated industrial waste water of some industries overlooking the flow path of the river. The basin was evaluated respecting its groundwater quality and quantity. Gravity method deduced depths to bedrock beneath the alluviums and found to range between 8 and 33 meters. The water was found not to fit for the WHO and local regulations for drinking water, where several pollution processes affected its quality. Annual throughput amounts were calculated to be less than 0.66 MCM.
