Groundwater is an important resource of household, business, and agricultural water and in addition a finite source. inhabitants development has created an exceptional call for for water, with the location most crucial within the constructing global, the place numerous million humans depend upon infected groundwater for consuming reasons. Geogenic contaminants, akin to arsenic and fluoride at poisonous degrees, pose significant environmental dangers and endanger public wellbeing and fitness. This book is a set of papers providing a multi-disciplinary review for scientists and pros focused on the sustainable improvement of groundwater assets.

On account of its depth and isolation from surrounding water-bearing lithologies, this recharge is unlikely to be within Qatar. Groundwater flows in a northerly direction although this needs further confirmation. The quality of groundwater declines along the hydraulic gradient in a northerly direction. In addition, there is limited evidence that a further component of decline occurs towards the east. 3 GROUNDWATER USE Till the middle of the last century, groundwater comprised the main source of Qatar’s water supply for both domestic and agricultural purposes.
