Physico-Chemical Quality of Drinking Water in the South of Algeria (Case of El-Oued Region) Study of Excess Minerals

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

The Aim of this Study was to Determine the Physicochemical Composition of Water Intended for Human Consumption in Several Regions of El-Oued - Algeria. Excess Minerals in Drinking Water, Including Magnesium, Calcium, Sulfates, Chloride and Fluorides Play a Fundamental Role in the Prevention of Urinary Calculi, which are Formed Mainly from Calcium Oxalate. the Results Revealed that Wholes Water Samples are Analyzed Magnesium ([Mg 2+] > 50 Mg/L). the Rate of Sulfate Ions Average 638 Mg/l, Exceeding the Maximum Allowable Concentration (MAC) Recommended by WHO ([SO42ˉ] > 250 Mg / L). in Addition, 85% had Excess Fluoride [Fˉ] > 0.85 Mg/L, and 100% are Calcium, the Rate of Ca2+ is Greater than 150 Mg/L.
