Abstract

Abha is one of the top destination for tourists attraction in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which has resulted in exponential growth in development in terms of buildings, roads etc. This development has added to the ever growing water demand in the area. The study is a preliminary investigation into the present groundwater quality of the Abha City, further study will be under taken on the basis of the current study results. The samples have been collected from the farm wells situated in the city along the rain water streams. The samples were analysed in terms of pH, conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen and Solids. The study determined the pH value to be within the permissible range while other three parameters were not conforming to the permissible limits needing further research work to determine their causes. Keywords: Water demand, farm-wells, pH, conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen.
