Abstract

The Gaza Strip coastal aquifer is affected by increasing salinity and falling groundwater levels. Several authors believe these processes are related to the increasing water demand in the Gaza Strip corresponding to population growth during the past few decades. According to this model, aquifer overexplotation will trigger seawater intrusion. In this paper, a new mechanism is proposed for the water pollution, and guidelines for water management are presented. It has been suggested that there is a highly mineralized water inflow from the northern Negev area, through a preferential drainage axis. - (NF)
