Assessment of the quality and irrigation purpose suitability of alluvial water in Erfoud, Morocco

many factors, i.a., climate zone, anthropogenic environmental pressure, biological productivity, and mineralization. In the dry zone, the availability of freshwater is usually very limited, and surface water and shallow groundwater are characterized with high salinity ( El Mandour et al. 2008 , Ammar et al. 2016 , Fakharian, Narany 2016 ). In hot, dry areas, the high content of mineral salts in water is related to low precipitation and intensive evaporation. The amount of water used for agricultural, animal breeding and industrial purposes has increased recently
