The Assessment Suitability of Using Greywater for Irrigation in Kirkuk Governorate – Iraq
The population of Iraqi is increasing rapidly. This has increased pressure on water supply and water management. The Kirkuk Governorate and other Governorates of Iraq are facing serious challenges in this regard. The objectives of this study included evaluating the quality of greywater that generated from residential areas in the in Kirkuk Governorate and determining the suitability of reusing it for irrigate plants without treatment. The results show concentrated pH, Ec, TDS, K, Na, Ca, Mg, and SAR (7.3, 1590, 613, 16.5, 57, 79, 19.2, 1.5) respectively were greywater samples is in Iraqi standards ranges but TSS, BOD, COD, Cl, NO3 and PO4 (103, 292, 710, 42, 89, 21.5) respectively were exceeding permissible and standard value. So, it is preferable to use this type of greywater as for irrigate plants and discharge into environment after a primary treatment.
