Abstract

The changes in the wetlands are very dynamic and they have been evaluated from different data using several techniques (comparison of historical maps, comparison of topographic maps, photo-interpretation …).

The BeniYakhlef plain is highly threatened by water pollution related to chemicals, wastewater, solid waste discharges and intensive use of fertilizers. It is useful to monitor the quality of water resources. This monitoring needs the realization of the vulnerability map to groundwater pollution while relying on digital terrain model data and exogenous data such as: geological, climatic, soil and data on aquifers. Using the hydrological balance equation and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), map of the volumes run-off and infiltrated into the watersheds of the BeniYakhlef plain and the estimation of the impact of urban sprawl on water from the study area were done.

The objective of this work is to evaluate the influence of the flow on the physicochemical quality the study site’s well’s water and to determine the shape of the water table near the water discharge. The results of measurements of the electrical conductivity of groundwater and those of physicochemical analyzes made it possible to define different hydrogeochemical domains. The waters are all on facies mineralized in calcium and magnesium bicarbonates in general. The groundwater flow direction of the water table is plio-quaternary from SW to NE.
