Abstract [en]

Utilizing Geographical Information System (GIS) in the management of water resources, especially, in the quality of surface water, constiytutes a worthwile attempt made in the improvement and control the levels of pollution in the water. In this paper, GIS technology was used in conjunction with Water Quality Index (WQI) to assess the suitability for onsumption of water in the souther within Baghdad City for human needs based on the set of monthly measurements during the period from January to December 2016. The variables measured in seven monitoring stations along the studied reach of the river were: Total Di

(T.D.S), Total Hardness (T.H), Sulphate ion (SO Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BODhigher than the permissible limits specified by Iraqi and WHO regulations for the dand wet seasons. The digital pollution maps showed that the pollution moved from extremely polluted zones near the outfalls of wastewater to low polluted zones near the confluence of the Diyala and Tigris techniques are among the most effective methods to display the seasonal variability on

water quality, which can be used by the decision makers.
