Abstract

The assessment of surface water in Koudiat Medouar watershed is very important especially when it comes to pollution of the dam waters by discharges of wastewater from neighboring towns in Oued Timgad, who poured into the basin of the dam, and agricultural lands located along the Oued Reboa. To this end, the multivariable method was used to evaluate the spatial and temporal variation of the water surface quality of the Koudiat Medouar dam, eastern Algeria. The stiff diagram has identified two main hydrochemical facies. The first facies Mg-HCO3 is reflected in the first sampling station (Oued Reboa) and in the second one (Oued Timgad), while the second facies Mg-SO4 is reflected in the third station (Basin Dam). The results obtained by the analysis of variance show that in the three stations all parameters are significant, except for Na, K and HCO3 in the first station (Oued Reboa) and the EC in the second station (Oued Timgad) and at the end NO3 and pH in the third station (Basin Dam). Q-mode hierarchical cluster analysis showed that two main groups in each sampling station. The chemistry of major ions (Mg, Ca, HCO3 and SO4) within the three stations results from anthropogenic impacts and water–rock interaction sources.
