Water Pollution in Souf - Algerian Sahara

Assia Meziani, Soumia Meguellati


In Souf, the bad management of waters provoked two important problems: the ascent and the pollution of waters. These two problems caused an ecological unbalance and the negative environmental impacts. In order to solve these environmental problems, some best technical solutions have been adopted:  purification of waters by an aired lagoon for one time in 5 days to 10 days in order to preserve the public health and the integrity of the receiving environment, deletion of the nuisances and the present risks of contamination to the level of the urbanized zones, drainage and evacuation of treated waters without negative impact on the environment, preservation of water resources while reusing and valorizing the treated waters.
