Study of some characteristics of water in Kirkuk city

Several qualities of the drinking water in the Kirkuk Governorate were assessed in this study. Acidity function, temperature, turbidity, electrical conductivity, roughness, total dissolved salts, and sodium chloride salt are the qualities that were assessed. Studies and research have demonstrated that any increase in the concentrations of these previously listed requirements causes a variety of illnesses, including kidney and digestive system disorders, as well as occasionally numerous malignant diseases. The regions of Chardaghli and Quriya recorded the highest values of temperature and pH concentration during the month of November, as indicated by the results tables. December had the greatest values for electrical conductivity, hardness, and total dissolved salts. January had the maximum level of turbidity in the regions of Chardaghli and Malla Abdullah, while the regions of Al-Musalla and Malla Abdullah experienced minimum levels. The findings showed that there is a rise in the concentrations of the standards in comparison to the concentrations defined by the Iraqi and global drinking water specifications. Water sterilization needs to be done utilizing contemporary techniques in order to enhance its quality. Preserving the lives and safety of citizens while preventing the spread of various diseases.
