The Physical-chemical properties of water in khor Al-Zubair channel was studied during along year 2014.The current study included measurements of (pH ,Ec ,Salinity, temperature ,DO., Turbidity, Sulfate, nitrite, nitrate,&phosphate)at two stations . The results revealed that the averages of pH values of both stations ranged between (7-8.9).Values of salinity increased in station(B).Temperature increase gradual in summer directly related to atmospheric conduction and radiation.DO concentrations low in summer.Concentrations of other parameters were variable during the whole study period. In addition, the highest concentrations of nitrate in station (B) were high12.45 mg/l. Sulfate was recorded the highest value during September in station(B) which is 1089.45 mg/l. Because of the presence of industrial pollutants the turbidity is high in station (B) than in (A ).Flushing time was found 6 days.
