While the index of calcium only a value higher than the limits allowed to be used in Iraq and the world, The percentage of the reduction in the value of indicators for raw water was fluctuated before pumping to citizens for drinking in drinking water projects in the governorate, The highest rate of reduction was recorded for the turbidity index (79.95%), Magnesium (3.7%), acidic function (2.67%), Total precipitation (0.66%), sulfate (0.52%), electrical conductivity (0.41%), Total dissolved salts (0.21%), and there is no reduction (0%) for the indicators (calcium, sodium) together, While the indicators recorded a negative value of reduction (basal-0.77%), chlorides (6.38%), potassium (3.03%), The treatment plant units in these projects do not show the efficiency to remove the pollutants properly.
