This project consists of two parts: The first part is to analyze the quality of groundwater in 24 different locations in Tripoli. Chemical and physical parameters have been measured to indicate whether the groundwater, normally used for drinking purposes and if it is safe in reference to the Lebanese and WHO standards. Also, statistical analysis has been studied the correlations between parameters. In reference to the Lebanese and WHO standards, all studied parameters indicated that the groundwater in Tripoli is not safe for drinking purposes. Groundwater suffers from contaminations mostly due to the seawater intrusion and improper sewage disposal from upper lands. The second part of the project is the application of geographic information system (GIS) in Etroeungt and its surrounding area in France. The purpose of the GIS section is to underline the main criteria taken in consideration to evaluate water resources / vulnerability using a G.I.S Platform, so it can evaluate the contamination needs time until reach the groundwater. The G.I.S. Software used will be MapInfo professional.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 80-82).
