conference contributionposted on 2018-02-12, 15:10 authored by Ahmed Hassan
This paper discussed shallow well monitoring to find out : 1) Whether existing sanitation systems are polluting the selected hand dug wells water supply sources . 2) The nature of pollution hazard in terms of microbiological (coliform) and some physicochemical parameters. 3) The lateral distance from possible soak-away / pit latrine to the shallow well. 4) The static water level of selected shallow groundwater sources. 5) Recommend possible solution to the problems regarding groundwater contamination .
