|Title||Contamination of Groundwater with Heavy Metals in Gaza Strip|
This study characterized the chemical contamination of drinking water in Gaza Strip. Twenty one fresh samples from different supply sites were analyzed for metals and anions concentration. Results showed that samples contained higher level of nitrates than the EPA standards. Concentrations of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium salts are high in several water supply sites but they are in the acceptable levels or in the boarder line of rejection. Concentration of lead, cadmium, iron, and chromium are above EPA standards in some wells. This situation may have health risks to the local population. Improvement of water quality may be possible by implementing pollution control measures and clean water act.
