The study of selected well's water, quality and suitability for agricultural purposes in Al-Anbar governorate, has been conducted in Soil Science and Water Resources Department - College of Agriculture Al-Anbar University. After physical, chemical and biological analysis, the results shows according to pH value that the entire well's water studied were suitable for irrigation. 9% of total studied water were slight salinity (C1) 14% within class (C2) were suitable for moderately tolerance crops 29% within class (C3) were suitable for highly tolerance crops while 48% within class (C4) were suitable for very highly tolerance crops to salinity. All well's water classified as slightly sodium (S1) suitable for most crops and Remained Sodium Carbonate RSC were negative for all wells. Accordingly, all wells water studied was suitable for irrigation.

The research includes a study on bacterial contamination and certain chemical contaminants of water wells drilled in different areas of Baghdad. Five regions have been selected of the wells drilled in different places in the depths ranged between depths (5-15 meters), the Karrada, Jadiriyah, Mansour, Baya´a and Ghazaliya.
The results of bacteriological tests showed that the water wells drilled were not suitable for household use compared to the specifications of Iraq and the more wells with bacteriological contamination was in the Jadriya, followed by areas of Karrada, Almansor count was more likely to fecal bacteria (Mpn/100ml) of these areas are (90,40,40),respectively while it was (Mpn/100ml) in Baya & Ghazaliya (0,0).The results also showed that that some chemical tests of water in the areas studied were not in accord with Iraqi specification, especially for drinking water due to high concentrations of total dissolved salts (TDS) in mg/L. The wells water of the Jadria has the highest proportion (TDS=1800mg/L), followed by the wells of Baya, Karrada, Mansour and Ghazaliya with a TDS value (1700, 1500, 1400, 1200, mg/L) respectively. Other chemical tests such as the pH and Turbidity of water wells were in accordance with Iraqi Wells Water Specification.
