Hydrochemical classification of the groundwater of Urnm Al-Aish, Kuwait

Auther : FAWZIA AL-RUWAIH

Department of Geology, University of Kuwait, P.O. Box 5969, Kuwait

 

ABSTRACT

 

The Urnm Al-Aish area is considered one of the most important fresh water well fields in

Kuwait. Chemical analyses carried out in 1983 showed that the aquifer salinity ranges from 300 to 600 ppm. Chemical classification of groundwater indicates that there are four major groundwater groups: Group 1, calcium bicarbonate water type has a symbol (1113313) in which Na > CI; Group 2, calcium chloride water type (3131313), in which C1 > Na; Group 3, calcium sulphate water type (1313313), in which Na > C1; Group 4, calcium sulphate water type (331 1313), with C1 > Na. The overall chemistry of Urnm Al-Aish groundwater indicates that alkaline earths exceed alkalis, and strong acids exceed weak acids, suggesting that the area is being recharged during infrequent torrential rain storms.
