journal of kerbala university, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 6-10

A survey is made to estimate Nutrients of some wells in the South of Iraq: (Khor Al-Zubair, Zubair and Safwan) during 2008. Nine wells are selected with different depths ranged between 5-10 m near Khor Al-Zubair and 22-25 m in Zubair and Safwan. The main aim of this study is to estimate the concentration of Nitrate, Nitrite, Phosphate and Silicate ions. The values recorded from this study were (88.412 µgl) for Nitrate, (12.007 µgl) for Nitrite, (4.902 µgl) for Phosphate and (151.250 µgl) for Silicate in wells with low depths. Low values are recorded (5.718 µgl) for Nitrate and (0.0756 µgl) for Nitrite and (1.024 µgl) for Phosphate and (51.608 µgl) for Silicate in wells with high depths. The recorded values of more than half of the understudy wells are polluted by Nutrients.
