ABSTRACT

A hydrochemical study is conducted in the Faria basin / NE of the West Bank to define
water types and to determine hydrochemical parameters of the aquifer system. More than 150
water samples were analysed, which covered all springs and wells. The physical and
chemical properties were determined. The major cations Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+ and K+ and the
major anions HCO3-, Cl-, SO42- and NO3- were analysed. The minor constituents of SiO2,
F-, Br- and PO43- and the trace elements Cu, Cd, Fe, Mn, Cr, Zn and Pb were determined.
Indicators for water quality were determined indicating that the confined aquifer is not
polluted.
