Title : TEMPORAL EVOLUTION OF THE WATER CHEMICAL QUALITY FOR AGRICULTURAL IRRIGATION IN PEGO (ALICANTE, SPAIN)
Abstract : The purpose of this communication is to present the evolution of the chemical quality of surface water and groundwater used for irrigation of citrus and vegetables in Pego village (Southeast of Spain), during the years 2004-2014, considering the annual rainfall and the vulnerability of the area to the real risk of seawater intrusion and contamination by the application of organic fertilizers and synthetic origin. This is because irrigation is an area near the Mediterranean coast from a distance of between 2 and 11 km. It is a very interesting study area because it brings together two Cretaceous aquifers formed by dolomites and limestones cracked very karst landforms formed by geological materials of different chemical and solubility composition with other detrital aquifer quaternary occupying the flat and depressed area and terrain marl and clay that forms a swampy marsh (dedicated to rice and natural park) that separates it from the sandy shoal and the line of dunes along the beach of the Mediterranean Sea immediate sand.
